Colts @ Titans Sunday Night Football Game Thread

Hi Colts fans!   A playoff berth is on the line tonight, as our Indianapolis Colts are down south in Nashville to play the Tennessee Titans, with matching 9-6 records. in the 256th and final  game for both teams and the NFL's 2018  Regular Season, for NBC's primetime Sunday Night Football coverage.  Winner earns the postseason berth, loser is eliminated from the postseason.

 

Colts own the tiebreaker at the moment, with their earlier 38-10 home rout of the Titans in the earlier meeting played at the real LOS back on November 18, evening their record to 5-5 at the time.

 

I still think Indianapolis has the edge over Tennessee, because Andrew Luck has more game experience at QB than Blaine Gabbert. Colts defense has to contain Titans RB Derrick Henry, who scored 5 touchdowns in a home win over Jacksonville in a Thursday Night Football game.

 

Houston Texans clinched the 2018 AFC South Division title earlier this afternoon by defeating the visiting Jacksonville Jaguars 20-3 at NRG Stadium.  Texans linebacker J.J. Watt also had a sack accomplishing 16 QB sacks in 16 games this season.

 

Tonight's outcome in Nashville between the Colts and Texans is simply, winner earns a Wild Card Playoff berth,  loser is eliminated from contention.  Hopefully our Colts are the victors after tonight's game.

 

Had  the Jacksonville Jaguars upset the Texans in their season finale at NRG Stadium earlier Sunday afternoon, this Colts Vs. Titans game would  have been  more intrigue.  Had the Texans lost in that scenario Still a win or lose and go home prime time game, and  instead of Wild Card Playoff berth if the Texans win, but  for the  AFC South Division Title. 

 

A win tonight over the Titans by the Colts should be a fitting climax  and remarkable to their regular season,  after starting their first six games with a 1-5 record before their October 21 game.

 

Since their October  21 home win over the Buffalo Bills, the Colts have one 9 of their last 8 games during the season, the only blemish the 6-0 road loss at Jacksonville back on December 2.   Also since October 21, the Tennessee has also won 6 of their last 9 games prior to tonight.

 

Indianapolis leads the all-time regular season series, including 1 postseason game at 32-15, and also own an 11-5 record at Nissan Stadium.

 

Al Michaels and former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Cris Collinsworth are announcing the live TV game commentary , along with sideline reporter and interviewer Michele Tafoya, for The NFL On NBC's Sunday Night Football coverage, seen throughout the USA and internationally, and locally on WTHR NBC Channel 13 in Indianapolis, live on HD.

Partly cloudy skies at 53 degrees, is the local game forecast inside Nissan Stadium, for the 8:20 PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, along, with 0% precipitation, 67% humidity, and east/southeast winds at 3 miles per hour. However, showers is forecast to come  in Downtown Nashville by 11:00 PM Eastern Time, around the second half/fourth quarter.

So, it's time for the Colts to earn it, as they'll be fighting against:  1) The dreaded backup QB jinx 2) The officials 3) The rain and slop...and 4) Themselves.

 

 

If they handle #4, and if #2 aren't overly terrible, we'll be fine.

Just a heads up....every team I have rooted for since Friday has lost, so either I'm due for a victory or maybe I should just root for the Titans tonight?:thinking:

Sunday starts the new week!

I think one of these teams will crap the bed tonight, just not sure which one.......i am leaning towards us because Mariota is out and it would be classic Colts to lose to a backup QB.

 

Pressure does funny things to teams and this is the most pressure we’ve had since 2014.

 

Lots of rookies on both the team and coaching staff and regardless of the result it has been one hell of a ride and they should all be proud of themselves win or lose.

 

Under 3 hours to go, let’s go Colts!!!

Is this a must win?

 

Let's just say if we don't win, the usual suspects will declare this season, and everyone in the organization from the GM to the ballboys, complete and utter pathetic trashy garbage that sucks.

 

So no, not really.  :D

    • Think he is saying odds are better then zero he starts which leaves us in a range from .1 to 99.9...lol
    • I read that .... then reread it.......   Are you saying that he is a guaranteed starter?   Or there is no chance that he is the starter?   Its early, I havent finished my coffee.....  It might be my denseness       Goncalves would seem to have a real chance at RG.... IMHO  
    • A couple things that took place last year and throughout the off-season that I think will pay dividends this year on the defensive side of the ball.   Brents and Jones showed, in spurts, that they have the chops to play CB in this league and with a full season under their belt plus this off-season I think they will be a very solid tandem on the outside. Add in Flowers and his growth potential and a versatile rookie in Simpson I think the CB room is just fine and ready for the next step. Will they end up with more INT's and PBU's - I certainly think so.   Another coverage area that I think has improved is a full season and off-season of learning the LB spot for Ronnie Harrison and then the drafting of Jaylon Carlies and the singing of the UDFA Craig Young. All are former Safety's that have or had made the transition to LB and bring coverage skills with them and LONG arms - all three have 33" arms or longer which means wingspan and shutting down passing lanes. If the coaching staff isn't married to playing Zaire (Contract) and Speed (Veteran) on passing downs, then 2-3 of those fella's could play in sub packages and clog up passing lanes. They did cut bait with Shaq last year so I would hope that they play the kids that can actually cover versus the highest paid fella.   The addition of Latu, though he is just one man should also help speed up the QB's eyes and lead to more errant throws that could be picked off!??!   All three of those things tied together create a perfect storm of improvement in the weakest areas of our D last year.   As for Safety - I have mixed feelings about the FS spot and there are several 'what if' scenarios:   Cross could have something click and then the mental game meets up with his physical ability - which I feel like he played decent down the stretch last year (last 2-3 games)?   Thomas could return to his rookie form.   Daniel Scott could be a pretty good option but is also technically a rookie after sitting out all last year - though mental reps and walk throughs do help from time to time.   A really off the wall thought - perhaps they move Harrison back to SS and slide Blackmon to FS if the kids (Carlies & Young) prove capable as nickel and dime coverage backers?   Denbow is not the answer....... Dabo will be on year three of using the International Roster Exception..... Maybe they try Ameer Speed at FS with his size and speed combination? Maybe his college teammate Kendall Brooks earns a spot? Maybe Abraham or Simpson take FS and run with it? Both played that spot in college. Maybe Abraham proves he can play the NB and they slide Moore back to FS like he played in college?   Lots and lots of ifs and buts.........
    • Good question    Wiki simply says he's nicknamed AD, I wonder if it had to do with Hebrew pronunciation of the word Adonai, which means Lord.. maybe, it's just that his family or friends started calling him AD  
    • Fever get their 1st win over the Sparks. Clark hit a couple of 3s from real deep. 1 sealed the game late in the 4th.
