Colts @ Texans Game Day Thread


Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts fans!  :default_20smile: Our Indianapolis Colts try to go above their 6-6 regular season record, as they are in Southeast Texas to play the 9-3 and AFC South leading Houston Texans,  Texans are on a nine-game winning streak since losing their first three games of the regular season, hence their 9-3 record, but the Colts certainly won't be their tenth straight opponent  in as many games to continue their streak.

 

Colts seek to win again in Houston's NRG Stadium this after Jacoby Brissett threw 2 touchdown passes, both to T.Y Hilton from 45 and 80 yards, and Adam Vinitieri added his two field goals from 22 and 53 yards, and his 2 PAT's, for the 20-14 final back on November 5, 2017.

 

Colts seeks to avenge their earlier loss, when Texans kicker Ka'imi Fairbairn kicked his game-winning, 37-yard field goal with 5:00 left in overtime, to help Houston defeat Indianapolis 37-34, at the real Lucas Oil Stadium back on September 30.

 

Indianapolis still leads the all-time regular season series over the Houston Texans over any NFL opponent since the series and rivalry in the AFC South began in September 2002 at 25 wins and 8 losses, but the Texans has won 4 of the last 6 games since December 2015.

 

Texans record has improved by five games in 2018, and were 4-8 after  13 weeks of the 2017 NFL season, due to their second-year QB. DeShaun Watson. Watson may have won NFL Rookie Of The Year and help the Texans from their 4-12 record last year, and continue setting both Texans and NFL rookie record, if it wasn't his torn ACL he suffered in practice after a Week 8 loss in Seattle.

 

NRG Stadium's retractable roof will likely be closed, because mostly cloudy skies at 50 degrees, feels like 47 degrees, is the local forecast for this afternoon's 1:05 PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, along with 0%  precipitation, 63% humidity, and north/northwest winds at 8 miles per hour.

 

Head Linesman Bill Vinovich and his NFL officiating crew will supervise the game action in the NRG Field between the Colts and Texans.

 

Colts and Texans players continue to participate  during December's 'My Cause, My Cleats,' campaign, by wearing their personal Nike custom-designed football cleats they wear on the field during game action , to raise public aware and support their personal causes and charities.

     

NO injuries, win your seventh straight on the road as they Texans have done earlier in Indianapolis, and LET'S GO COLTS!!!!!   :rock:  :coltslogo:    :1colts:  :colts:   :1colts:   :coltslogo:    :rock:

Hi, Colts fans!   Our Indianapolis Colts try to go above their 6-6 regular season record, as they are in Southeast Texas to play the 9-3 and AFC South leading Houston Texans,  Texans are on a nine-gam

They commented on how Luck has played so much better by stepping up in the pocket to help his tackles.  The real truth is that the interior blocking has been so much better so he actually CAN step up

Watching the Chiefs vs Ravens, the Domestic Battery Bowl.   (Rice-Ravens, Hunt-Chiefs).

I'll also predict 28-14 Colts win over Texans Coltsbestever, considering Andrew Luck has more veteran NFL experience and leadership than DeShaun Watson, Colts defence has to also contain and overcome the Texans from the NFL's #5 scoring offense while the Colts have the #15 scoring offense. GO COLTS!!     :coltslogo:  :coltshelmet:  :colts:

Houston is due for a loss, and this week is a good time for that. TY Hilton was questionable, but it looks like he will be playing. That's a positive sign. 

No team is ever "due" for a loss or even a win. That's like seeing 10 red spaces come up on a roulette wheel and betting the farm on black because it's "due". The bottom line is that Kelly is probably out, Watt and Clowney are going to wreck havoc, and we are out of sync on offense. We need to establish the run today, get pressure on Watson again like last time, and not turn the ball over.

 

I think we get beat 27-17 or something close. This is a bad matchup for us.

Huge game for both teams.   Houston is in the hunt for a bye and home field advantage.   Maybe more importantly, they want to establish themselves as the class of the division.   It's going to be tough for the Colts to win this one.   I think the Texans win 31-17.    

It's not like the Colts don't have a chance though.   If Luck is on it and can have a good game, we can stay in this game.  

 

It'll be fun to see how both of these teams play in such a crucial game.  Do or die for the Colts.

This looks like another garbage game plan executed by a regressing team. Wins or losses wasn’t on my judgement for this season but we’ve seen a few games now where we look like a poorly coached team. That’s not saying Reich and company isn’t going to do a fine job, I still have confidence in them but this team doesn’t resemble the first 1-5 team we seen.

It’s been two possessions...

    • When Frank has had a good quarterback, he wins and makes the playoffs.   The two years he didn’t make the playoffs were the two Luck years where things went to heck at the last minute.   And one of those two years we looked like a playoff team until JB got hurt.  From there, things went downhill.   This year, we never lost two games in a row.  When we lost a game, we won the next week.  A very good sign of a well coached team.   We had one bad loss, week one in a season where Covid wiped out the entire off-season and all pre-season games.   Ballard speaks glowingly of Frank.   He knows how hard it is to find a good coach.   I’m not sure why you think we’re not a well coach team, but for some strange reason you do. 
    • So you don’t really agree with most?
    • Whether I've heard of them or not is irrelevant. What's relevant is that our coaches can lead our team to a SB win. You can bash me because of my lack of knowledge all you want. The real question is, do you trust Ballard to hire coaches over 31 other teams? Do you trust Frank Reich's word that these guys are good? You are being positive and trustworthy just for the sake of it too. I don't trust anyone for us until they prove they can do their job at the highest level, in the NFL and on the Indianapolis Colts.
    • Joe Tiller coached future HOFer Drew Brees at Purdue.  He's the father of "basketball on grass."  One of the most brilliant offensive coaches of his generation with an outstanding coaching tree.    I say this with no disrespect, but the fact that you haven't heard of someone is pretty meaningless.    Your responses regarding the listing of several coaching legends, together with your reactions toward the several up-and-coming NFL coaches that have been named in this thread, has established you're pretty much only familiar with a few household names that virtually every casual NFL fan is familiar with.   If that was the criterion by which all coaching decisions and hires were made, no coach would ever move up the ranks and have the chance to become successful.    Sirianni was pretty much a nobody before the Colts hired him.  He's still only 39 years old.  Now he's the HC of the Eagles.  Eberflus had never coordinated a defense before he got to Indy.  I'm guessing you had no idea who Gannon was until he was hired away.    In sum, there's no reason to be overly negative about things just for the sake of being overly negative.  It may be more rewarding to expand your horizons and learn more about the game and how many great coaches permeate every level of it.  Some coaches that you perceive as "bad" because of their tenure with a certain team go on to do great things in a different environment.  Same can be said for coaches that you've never heard of (which is seemingly a pretty big list).  That's the nature of the business. 
    • I've never heard of any of these guys besides Levy and Kush, so I have no idea if they are even good or not.
