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!!!!! .
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?”

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.
Walker did look much better last game compared to week 1, so props to him. Still, no comparison to CK. I had mixed emotions about bringing CK in, but now I really hope things work out. He looks "in command" and has a nice rhythm to his game. And he can make all the passes and has wheels.
I know it's only 2 preseason games, but I can understand now why Elway made him QB2 in Denver. It'll make parting with JB much easier.
IF he can keep his head on straight/.
