IF we make the playoffs, would you rather play the Pats or Texans on Wild Card Weekend?

Pros for playing the Pats rather than the Texans:

 

- We likely would have to get past them anyway to make a run. Is it easier to beat a team on the road in the wild card weekend rather than later? Anybody got stats on this?

- Can you imagine we beat Tom Brady and the Pats in the 1st rond? I would legitimately seeu s being able to make a SB run. That would be very very exciting

- It will only get colder further into the playoffs. I'd rather play in Foxsborough in milder weather because we're not accustomed to it and they are (understatement)

- Pats are the Pats but they've looked a little shaky of late. Something tells me with a bye and more time, Belicheck will have the Pats looking unstoppable again as he always does. Perhaps stomping on them earlier in the best chance

 

Pros for playing the Texans rather than the Pats:

 

Nuff said. This game would likely be a 50/50 game that could go either way and I feel much more comfortable winning this individual game and moving on to the next round

 

 

So, who would you rather play, assuming we make it? Discuss

Texans. They haven't stopped Luck and TY yet. We match up well with them.

 

That being said, beating the Pats on the road would be sweeter.

I see at Texans wild card being a W and At Ne being a loss, as much as i would like to see us kick NE out i like our chances of advancing to the divisional against Hou much easier.

I don't care one bit!

 

First & foremost, make the playoffs. After that, both a Pats or Texans win would be extremely satisfying.

A win against NE would beat good as a SB to me. Cherry on top for the season.

Steelers in round one, Chargers in round two, Pats in round three, Saints for the Chip.

We can't get steelers in round 1. More likely pats, chargers then steelers

The Pats are only a 1/2 game ahead of the Steelers.  Hell, they're only a game ahead of us.  The Pats could drop to the 4 seed.

 

If we make the playoffs, I believe it's still possible for us to play anyone 1-9.

Going to Gillette would be a better experience in the long term for the young guys.  Beating Mcdaniels and ending the dynasty would be our super bowl.

Bring on whoever.

 

I know we can beat both these squads... home or away.

 

The way the Patriots are playing atm, we would maul them.

As long as they get in I will be relieved.  It would be a shame if they did not after playing so well during this run they are on. Starting out 1-5 and dropping that game to the Jags did not do them any favors.

The way the Patriots are looking, I don’t want them to have the luxury of the bye and a week to rest, heal up, & gameplan. Make them have to turn right around and play wildcard weekend. And if that has to be us, then so be it.  We’ll never get a better chance to knock them off.  

 

Slay the dragon and let Luck go Claim the Throne in the Super Bowl.  Time for the Luck Dynasty to begin and Brady era to end.  Luck would gain so much confidence by finally vanquishing Belichick that I think he’d rip on through the rest of the playoffs to the Super Bowl.

Only two teams have clinched a playoff spot in the AFC. In one game a team can go from being the division winner to not making the playoffs.  We could play anyone right now. I can’t believe how wide open it is.

Belichick has had us figured out for years, and the patriots always come alive in the playoffs. For those reasons I’d rather play the Texans 

But we aren’t the same kind of team. We are a different team both on offense and defense. We were really injured when we played them this year but yet we were still in that game until the fourth quarter.

He hasnt figured this team out. And he doesnt have the personnel to execute this time.

This all the way. Dream scenario IMO. Could be a taking of the torch moment for the young Colts.

First, I just want to get into the post season.

 

Then, I want conditions where the turf is faster and the temperature is warmer.  Cold , slow, sloppy conditions nullify our strengths, especially on defense.

 

Teams can be scouted and schemed.  Then it is a matter of who plans and executes better.  But conditions are extraneous factors.

The Houston fans hate the Colts above all other teams. Frankly, I am long past the NE years of disappointing wins over the gone forever Colts teams. Those players and coaches are long gone watching games on the flat screen just like us now. Crush both teams then the game of the year between the Colts and Bolts.

I know the Pats seem vulnerable now, but we've seen this movie before.  Then January comes, the cold weather up there, the refs looking the other way, and it's hard to stop that snowball once it gets rollin.  I would just rather not go down that same road again.  What's the old saying about the definition of insanity?  That said, if we have to we have to.  But I'd MUCH rather go to Houston, Texas personally.  THEN if we need to go to Foxboro so be it.  Probably gonna have to go there at some point if they keep winning.

    • I hear ya. I used to love going to games because of the atmosphere alone. Like I have posted I have been to probably 50 games in my lifetime but I have never been to a pre-season game. It would still be fun if you went with good friends, eating and drinking. Enjoy the game brother.
    • Another NFL Preseason Game Night, Colts fans!    A battle of  0-2  teams  seeking their first win in the 2019 NFL preseason play in Circle City, as the Chicago Bears come south on Interstate 65,  to play our Indianapolis Colts in both teams preseason meeting in four years.    Chad Kelly and Phillip Walker are the only other Colts quarterbacks available,  both listed in the training camp roster, and the team depth chart, probably available to play tonight, since neither Jacoby Brissett or Andrew Luck will play the rest of the preseason.   Current Bears Defensive Coordinator Chuck Pagano also returns to Indianapolis, where was the Colts Head Coach from 2012-2017.   Indianapolis and Chicago are playing their 16th all-time preseason game, with the Colts leading the all-time preseason series between the teams at 9-5-1.  Colts defeated the Bears in their last game, and visit to Indianapolis by the score of 23-11 back on August 22, 2015.   Indianapolis also  currently leads the all-time regular season series at 23-11, including  winning Super Bowl XLI over the Bears, their only playoff win  over Chicago.  Colts also defeated the Bears, winning 29-23, during both teams last regular season meeting also played at Lucas Oil Stadium (the building),  back on October 9, 2016.   Colts may play the Bears at Soldier Field, when the AFC South teams play the NFC North teams during interdivisional play in the 2020 NFL regular season.   Colts defeated the Bears  29-17 in Super Bowl XLI, during  the rainy, and then-named at the time, Dolphins Stadium At Miami Gardens, back on February 4, 2007.   The 2006 Colts team that finished 12-4 during the regular season were lead by  Head Coach Tony Dungy, and Super Bowl XLI MVP  QB Peyton Manning.   LOS's retractable roof might be open for tonight's 7:05 PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, because the local gamecast around the stadium area is 75 degrees, 0% precipitation, 52% humidity, and  east/northeast winds at 11 miles per hour.   Great luck to all the Colts and Bears players, especially the backup players and reserves, as they continue to audition during their  training bears-week-3-camp, and the preseason games, on trying to make the cut to the final 53.   NO injuries, GO Blue Horseshoe, Win Your First Preseason Game, And Home Game In Your 2019 NFL Season, and LET'S GO COLTS!!!!!                 .    https://colts.com/news/bears-week-3-preseason-preview   https://colts.com/game-day/2019/pre/bears-at-colts/   https://nfl.com/gamecenter/2019082452/2019/PRE3/bears@colts   https://indystar.com/sports/colts   https://chicagobears.com/news/pagano-expects-an-emotional-return-to-Indy  
    • Tom Brady wanted to trademark the nickname "Tom Terrific".    He lost.  The US Patent and Trademark office rejected Brady's request to trademark the term. Brady says he was trying to protect Tom Seaver's nickname. Lolol. Spare me, Brady.    “Has anyone ever even called him ‘Tom Terrific’?” Mr. Talansky said. “Was ‘Vainglorious Cheater’ already trademarked?”   Tom Brady Is No ‘Tom Terrific.’ Any New Yorker Can Tell You That. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/23/nyregion/tom-brady-seaver-terrific.html  
    • Bummer that all the starters are out! I’m going with a group of friends, including some Bears fans(Boo!). Alot of people on here saying they feel bad for people going and that it’s too much money to go watch scrubs....Going to a game at Lucas is more then just watching the game. It’s about tailgating, hanging out with good friends and having a good time, razzing the opposing teams fans, all in fun of course, and also hanging out with fellow bleed blue colts fans! Same reason I went to watch the Cubs even during the bad years, the atmosphere and fans were awesome no matter what. I don’t really mind watching the second and third stringers fighting for their futures.    As far as price, I got a pretty good seat for $48, so can’t complain. It’s going to be a fun day no matter what, not going in with high expectations like I do during regular season.
