Colts @ Texans 2019 AFC Wild Card Round Playoff Game Thread

Recommended Posts

Happy New Year, 2019, and the Blue Horseshoe is back in the NFL Playoffs Colts Fans!  Our  2018 and 10-6  Indianapolis Colts are back in the NFL Postseason for the first time in four years,  as they are back again in Southeast Texas, to play the 11-5, and 2018 AFC South Division Champions Houston Texans for third time in the 2018-19 NFL calendar season.

 

This afternoon's Colts @ Texans game leads off the weekends 2019 NFL's Wild Card Round Weekend, followed by the Seahawks @ Cowboys, and on sunday the L.A. Chargers @ Ravens, and Eagles @ Bears Wild Card Round playoff Games.   Our Colts also  earned this year's playoff berth convincingly and on the road, by virtue of defeating the Tennessee Titans in Nashville by the score of 33-17 last Sunday Night.

 

Colts are in their 28th playoff appearance this late Saturday afternoon since in their 65th year of existence. since the NFL awarded the franchise back in January 23, 1953. and  as the Baltimore Colts from 1953 through 1983, and the Indianapolis Colts from 1983 through today.

 

Indianapolis is the third NFL team to reach the postseason after starting their first six games with a 1-5 record. Colts then proceeded to win 9 of their 10 remaining regular season games, the only loss and blemish a 6-0 road loss at the Jacksonville Jaguars back on December 2.

 

I still think the Colts November schedule, with their Week 9 bye week, and three straight home games at the real LOS, was the turning point in their 2018 regular season.  First year Colts Head Coach Frank Reich, should earn serious consideration as the NFL's Coach Of the Year in leading the Colts turnaround this past regular season.

 

2014 Indianapolis Colts were the last team to qualify for playoffs,  completing both  their third consecutive year with an 11-5 regular season record, and also 2014 was the last year the Colts earned the AFC South Divisional Championship.  

 

2014 Colts proceeded to defeat the Bengals 26-10 in the AFC Wild Card Playoffs, and the Broncos 24-13 in the AFC Divisional Playoffs, before falling to the Patriots in the AFC New England,  both by the final 7-45 score, and the Colts the victim of the alleged 'deflategate'  by Tom Brady and eventual Super Bowl Champion Patriots.

 

Both Indianapolis and Houston split wins, each winning road games by three points, in their home-and-home rivalry in the 2018 regular season  meetings. 

 

Houston won in overtime when Ka'imi Fairburn kicked the game-winning 37 yard field goal with five minuites left in overtime to defeat the Indianapolis  37-34 at the real LOS back on September 30, 2018. 

 

However, the Colts avenged their earlier loss later, when the Colts had the biggest lead of the match played at Houston,, leading 24-14, before the Colts kept their lead after a Texans Touchdown from DeShaun Watson to DeAndre Hopkins, and eventually won 24-21 in the rematch played at NRG Stadium in Houston back on December 9, 2018.

 

Indianapolis has lead the regular season series prior to Saturday afternoon with their 26-8 record, but today's is both teams first postseason game, in today's 35th all-time meeting.

 

Colts also have a winning road regular season record at Houston at 12-5.

I look at all the games during the 16 game season because they are all important. What sticks out to me was Oakland beating Pittsburgh in Week 14. Without that we are not in the Playoffs. So this is all gravy moving forward. That same week we won at Houston, at that point we just needed the Steelers to lose 1 more game and win our last 3 games to get in. Steelers still had to play at Saints so that was given they would lose that. We should send Jon Gruden a thank you card because no way the Steelers should've lost to Oakland.

I think it's more about bad plays and lame penalties.

 

We were winning the entire time last week, but the pick-6 by Luck and all the lame calls by the refs had the boo-birds out in full force.  :grumpy2:

TY for 155 yards and 3 TDs.

 

 

He must be feeling pretty good about that ankle. I don’t think TY would talk trash and not back it up.

Agree.  He's not a rookie that would predict 40 tackles, haha.

 

I think this one is going to end up well for us, but it will be bruising and somewhat low scoring.  17-13, and Colts going to KC next week.

Injury riddled?

This is probably the healthiest we've been all season.

Evening and welcome to another G'Day topic. 

 

Remember we're playing with house money now and that games aren't decided in the first quarter. To go from 1-5 to the playoffs (and still having a slim shot at the division in week 17) is pretty miraculous considering how young a roster it is. Far from, dare I say it.... pathetic, perhaps the most misused word on this forum currently.

It's just a smokescreen to hide that fact he's starting at DB today. #mindgames

Everybody's good but I'd rather be playing at Houston than at Baltimore...

…..The only real weaknesses they have are in the secondary and offensive line.

 

….Our inexperience may be less of a factor since we're seeing the same team for the 3rd time.

For our rookies, this is their 17th NFL game and the third time they're playing Houston.

I'd like to think there's some comfort there...

 

...Watson hasn't played in any pro playoff games (although he has played Alabama twice) but you want to play against a QB making his playoff debut

Just be careful with those wide receiver screens today, as Watt will be looking for a pick 6. Even with lesser level DE some of those passes are inches from getting picked.

On one of the videos a couple of weeks ago they showed Andrew actually pumping it once so that Watt would clear the lane before he threw it.  I'm sure Andrew will have that in his mind.

 

They've done a good job screwing with Watt's penetration thus far.  I like our chances with Kelly in the C spot.

    • Fair enough, but does he really put them into every game or does he hold them back from doing better?  Even in games like against the Chiefs, it was the defense and running attack that won the game.  I know it is said he is protecting the ball, but he makes very few plays as well.  So I personally see no upside for him.  I think at the NFL level when you have a great running attack and defense playing solid, you can win games.    I think Eason would likely throw more interceptions, but also more big plays.  I actually watched every game Eason played in college.  What I am encouraged with him is most big, raw prospects are turnover prone. He isn't.  He doesn't throw that many interceptions and is pretty accurate.  
    • If any of the rookie QB's ball out it will be them.   Taylor might otherwise be in a good position to pick it up if none of the rookie QB's stand out, but his biggest problem is that he's likely going to be at the very least splitting carries with Mack.  So he could have some great runs and post a great yards per attempt but just not make it as the offensive rookie of the year because he won't put up huge huge numbers.   Another player we could look at is Clyde Edwards-Helaire.  Drafted in the 1st by KC.  I don't know how good KC's OL is but working next to Mahomes is going to open up a lot of lanes for any RB.  So I'd consider him a candidate as well. 
    • You think I don’t know what round Eason was picked?    I’m not predicting Eason is cut and signed back to the PS.  I’m only saying it’s possible.   That’s why I said 50-50.
    • This is my point.  There is no guarantee he would stay here. He may end up on the PS. I just think it’s a small chance. With covid we can afford to keep him on the 53 with the new PS rules. It really just depends how he looks in practice. If he looks average maybe they put him there. If he looks fantastic they probably keep him on the 53.
    • Actually he's missing the point slightly . . . you risk them being picked up on waivers.  We cut Easton any team that had interest in him before the draft could pick him up on waivers.  A lot of teams had interest in him.  This is a 4th round pick not a 7th.   Kelly could potentially clear waivers.  Easton is almost certain to be picked up on waivers.
