Colts Vs. Bills Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

Greetings for another NFL  Game Day, Colts Nation! :default_20smile:  Our 1-5 Colts are still mathematically alive in the NFL playoffs as they host the 2-4  Buffalo Bills at the real Lucas Oil Stadium.  Colts seek to end their three-game regular season losing streak, and also try to win their first game, and first home game over Buffalo in six seasons.

 

T.Y. Hilton scored both touchdowns, on on a 75-yard punt return in the first quarter, and an 8-yard touchdown reception in the third quarter by Andrew Luck, along with Adam Vinitieri's 2 PAT's and field goals from 25 and 19 yards in the second quarter, as the Colts defeated the Bills 20-13 in their last win over Buffalo at LOS back on November 23, 2012.

 

Buffalo though leads the all-time regular season series over Indianapolis with 37 wins, 31 losses, and 1 tie, in today's 70th all-time meeting.  Their 17-17 tie  was their first meeting after  the AFL-NFL merger back on November 15, 1970.

 

LOS's retractable roof despite the sunny and clear skies, because outside the stadium area the game forecast is 46 degrees, feels like 44 degrees,  0% precipitation, 44% humidity, and west/southwest winds at 4 miles per hour.

 

Head Linesman Brad Allen leads the NFL officiating crew to supervise the game action in the LOS Playing Field, between the Colts and Bills.

 

NO injuries, stay on track to win your second game, and  LET'S GO COLTS!!!!!  :rock:  :cheer:  :coltslogo: :1colts:  :colts:  :coltshelmet:  :coltslogo:  :cheer::D

17-13 Colts win.
Bills find a way to get two FG's on drives, and their D scores a TD on a turnover. Colts have two TDs through the air with a FG by Vinny to secure the win, and the D gets a turn-over to seal the win.
This could also be a blowout if the Colts play Time of Possession and keep the Bills D on the field. I expect a lot of No-Huddle, but not hurry up. Dont allow substitutions, keep the game clock moving.

 

Colts, if they dont get in their own way, will win this. But, the moment they play outside of themselves the Bills have enough defensive talent to make an impact. I dont want this to be shades of... Um... the 2002 NFL season, where the Texans went into Pittsburg, ran the ball up the middle x3 then punted but came away with a 15-6 win because their special teams and Defense just had their way with the Steelers.

Thanks again, LOS!

 

Just want to see the defense mature so that they don't give up a TD from dumb penalties that sustain drives.  Get off the field, guys.

 

Want to see the run game get going.  Second consecutive game with this same OLine (I think?).

27-13 Colts.

Dontrelle Inman is active today. Does anyone see him being a major contributor today?

 

He's already a major contributor as a healthy body. Anything else is gravy

    • Here's how I look at it. It's very rare for a team to win a SB with an average QB. Typically their QBRs are pretty high. I saw a graphic or tweet IIRC that only one team in the modern era has won the SB with a QBR under 50. And that was Manning in Denver. Talk about the perfect game manager (with declining skills) on a team with an elite defense. Their O was still decent/average (ranked 16th). Their D was #1.    JB's QBR now is like 47, and that's with one of the best OLs in the league. Our D (pts per game allowed) is like 16th. Even if our D gets back up to like 10, that's still not a SB winning combination. I also ask what is more likely, finding a QB that will be top 10ish (60 or higher QBR), or creating a #1 D to offset a sub 50 QBR. IMO, finding a 60ish QBR guy is probably the easier road.   I really love JB as a person. Awesome guy, hard worker, etc.. I'd love for him to improve and become that guy. I just see several very "fundamental" limitations to his game, that I'm not sure will improve all that much over the course of a season (or even two). My biggest fear is that we get stuck in a fog of mediocrity, trying to make things work for a few years. Purely my opinion, but if I don't see significant improvement by the last quarter of the season, I'm probably moving on. 
    • Did Campbell have injury issues at OSU?   Is it too early to say bye to Lewis lol
    • To the OP, to answer your question it is because he plays for Alabama. Most loved Fromm before last week  , he lost with a stacked team vs an unrated SC team. Fromm also ranks very low when throwing completions in the air down field 10 yards or more. Tua is no Andrew Luck, lets not fool ourselves.
    • This is right on point. If for some reason they can’t play we are going to have to go with a very vanilla and basic scheme. Won’t be able to confuse Watson either. Losing our two starting corners in this game would be bigger then not having our safeties against KC.  Especially with the Texans offense. They spread the ball around a lot. Having Desir out means Wilson plays on the outside which limits packages and looks. If Moore can’t go we have another rookie in Taylor in the slot. So Eberflus would keep it simple.
