Colts Vs. New York Giants Game Day Thread


Recommended Posts

Hi, Colts fans!   Our 8-6 Indianapolis Colts have won 7 of the last 8 regular season games since October 21 after starting the season losing four of their first five games at 1-5,  and continue their momentum and surge  into a possible Wild Card postseason playoff spot, as they host the surging New York football Giants at the real Lucas Oil Stadium.  N.Y. Giants are visiting, and playing, a regular season game in Downtown Indianapolis in more than eight years.

 

With the Titans win 25-16 in Nashville on Saturday Night, and if the Eagles upset the visiting and 10-4 Houston Texans at Philadelphia while this Colts game is played, the AFC South could be interesting in the season finale next Sunday, as the Jaguars visit the Texans, while our Colts may play a showdown with the Titans as the AFC South Divisional Title, and Wild Card, can potentially be at stake between our Colts, Texans, and Titans.

 

As the aforementioned Colts won 7 of their past 8 regular season games heading into this afternoon, the New York Giants started at 1-7 to start their 2018 NFL season,  Since their Week 9 bye week, the N.Y Giants have won four of their last six games and are now 4-2. Their 17-0 home loss last Sunday to the Tennessee Titans though eliminated them from playoff contention.

 

An interesting battle of QB's today as the Colts own Andrew Luck vs. the N.Y. Giants 14-year veteran Eli Manning.  N.Y Giants also have other significant offensive weapons the Colts defense have to keep in check from advancing downfield this afternoon in rookie RB Saquan Barkley,  but WR Odell Beckham, Jr. is inactive,

 

Both Indianapolis and the New York Giants are meeting in their 19th all-time meeting, after playing 16 regular season, and 2 postseason games,  which are when the Baltimore Colts won consecutive NFL Championships over the N.Y. Giants in 1958 and 1959.

 

indianapolis is also on a current three-game regular season winning streak over the N.Y. Giants, and also have won 4 of the last five games since November 14, 1999.

 

Indianapolis defeated the N.Y. Giants in both teams last meeting played at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey back on November 3, 2014.   Game highlights include Andrew Luck throwing four touchdown passes - 32 yards to Coby Fleener, 40 yards to Reggie Wayne, 2 yards to Dwayne Allen, and 31 yards to T..Y. Hilton.  Adam Vinatieri kicked four PAT's, and four field goals from 48,  31, 48, and 43. yards to make the final score 40-24.

 

New York Giants last regular season visit and game in Indianapolis was also the the last game when the Manning brothers played opposite each other for their teams - the so-called 'Manning Bowl.'  The Colts and Peyton Manning statistically outdueled the New York Giants and Eli Manning both on the scoreboard and statistically when Peyton's Colts won 38-14 at the real LOS back on September 19, 2010. 

 

Peyton completed 20 of his 26 passes for 255 yards, 3 TD's,  0 INT, and 1 sack.  Brother Eli  completed 13 of 24 passes completed for 161 yards, 2 TD's, 1 INT, and 4 sacks.

 

Lucas Oil Stadium's both retractable roof and side glass doors are closed for this afternoon's 1;05PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, because cloudy skies 37 degrees, feels like 31 degrees, is forecast outside the stadium area, along with 5% precipitation, 74% humidity, and west/northwest winds at 7 miles per hour.

 

Head Linesman Brad Allen leads his NFL Officiating Crew to supervise the game action on the LOS playing field between the Colts and New York Giants.

 

NO injuries, Win your ninth game of the 2018 NFL Regular Season, along with winning 8 of your last 9 games, stay in the hunt for the playoffs and the showdown in the season finale in Nashville with the Titans,  Have A Merry Christmas to the registered users here in the Colts Fan Forum, and LET'S GO COLTS!!!!!

PSA... NFL games are 4 Qtrs folks. Not every win is pretty. Saying a game is over in the 1st Qtr is just farcical. 

Congrats on the win! Awesome comeback. It was a good game to watch.    Happy Holidays!!

Andrew Freakin' Luck....I just can't say enough.   You are never out of a game with him at QB.

It is what I have seen with my own eyes (and often!) that scares me a little bit this with game !......What am I talking about ???????..... Mr.Saquon Barkley

Yeah, but you don't stop him, you game plan to contain him.  He can do so many things, you just have to keep a spy on him.  Not having OBJ really helps contain Barks a lot, in my opinion.

Or score so fast and often they have to abandon the run.

Because of where I live I only get Giants games (or Jets) on TV. MB-COLTS you are 100% correct. That's how the Titans somewhat controlled Barkley last week.......They tackled him as a group.

Agree...and we have the type of offense that can do that.  That should be our plan.  Jump early and keep Eli off the field by running down their throats.  Their DLine is pretty good, but our OLine should be able to get holes.

haha...I feel your pain.  The first 54 years of my life was in NJ.  Been a Colts fan since I was 9 years old.  I know the G-Men decently well.  My step-son is still a big fan of theirs.

and yet you still have to account for Saquan as he does really well catching out of the backfield, where we have had issues getting coverage.  Shoud be interesting.

    • 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.
