Colts Vs. Falcons Game Day Thread

Recommended Posts

NFL Game Day in Indianapolis is finally here,  Colts Nation!  :)  Our 1-1 and 2019 Indianapolis Colts are back in Downtown Indianapolis as they host the Atlanta Falcons in the first of four NFC South interdivisional opponents the Colts will play during the 2019 NFL Regular Season. Atlanta is playing a regular season game for the first time in Indianapolis in eight years, and Sunday afternoon's game is the 17th all-time meeting between the teams.

 

14 Colts players are listed in the final pregame injury report including Jacoby Brissett participating in practices last week with their knee and quad injuries. Falcons had six players listed in their injury report.

 

After two games the Colts are #2 in the NFL in Rushing Offense, and yards, led by  Marlon Mack with his 225 yards.   Also an interesting battle of quarterbacks, with the Colts Jacoby Brissett and the Falcons Matt Ryan leading their offenses. Atlanta offense also is sparked by WR Julio Jones and RB Devonta Freeman.

 

Indianapolis by far has the most current  winning percentage over Atlanta than any NFL opponent to start their home schedule of the regular season.   Colts lead the series at 14-2, and with their .875 percentage over the Falcons after 16 games.  Colts probably would have had a record of 15-1 instead when  the Falcons last visited Indianapolis.   Colts QB  Peyton Manning  though was sidelined the entire 2011 NFL regular  season because of his neck surgeries, along with Manning being placed the Franchise Tag.

 

Indianapolis will certainly perform better than they did when they played Atlanta at Lucas Oil Stadium (the building) back on November 6, 2011.  Falcon's Matt Ryan outdueled the Colts Curtis Painter and Dan Orlovsky with completing 14 of his 24 passes for 275 yards and three touchdowns.  Two of his TD's were in the air to Julio Jones from 50 and 80 yards, and 1 yard to Tony Gonzalez.  Defensive back Jerraud Powers 6-yard interception return for a TD in the second quarter, was the only score for the Colts as Atlanta defeated Indianapolis 31-7.

 

Indianapolis avenged their loss when they defeated Atlanta in their last regular season visit to the  Georgia Dome back on November 22, 2015.  Colts QB Matt Hasselbeck threw two separate TD passes from 7 yards and 2 yards to Ahmad Bradshaw, plus a 6-yard INT return by Colts LB D'Qwell Jackson, to help the Colts tie the game at 21-21 with 10:07 remaining in the fourth quarter.  Adam Vinatieri kicked  43-yard  game-winning field goal  with 8  seconds remaining, to help the Colts defeat the Falcons 24-21.

 

Andrew Catalon and former GB Packers wide receiver and Hall-Of Famer James Lofton announce the live TV game commentary for the NFL On CBS' early regional double header game, seen regionally, and locally in Indianapolis on WTTV Channel 4, live on HD.

 

LOS's retractable roof could be closed to keep everyone inside cool and comfortable, for this afternoon's 1:05 PM Eastern Standard Time kickoff, because mostly cloudy skies at 84 degrees, feels like 85 degrees, is the gamecast outside the stadium area, along with 15% precipitation, 47% humidity, and southwest winds at 15 miles per hour.

 

Head Linesman Alex Kemp leads his NFL officiating crew to supervise the live game action on the LOS playing field between the Colts and Falcons.

 

NO injuries the Colts and Falcons players. Let's all see the Colts  win their second game of the season in front of your loyal fans at LOS, Go Blue Horseshoe, and GO COLTS!!!!   :cheer:  :coltslogo:    :1colts:  :colts:  :coltshelmet:  :coltslogo:  :cheer:  :rock:  :D

Hahaha...this really is a loose and happy bunch.  Hope they play out of their minds today to open up the homestand.  I can't even predict a score, but I'm thinking we win this one.

 

Thanks again, LOS for setting the table for us.  Let's get a win, boys!

Go COLTS!  All day.  Every day.  :coltshelmet:

    • Not saying they will or they wont... but...   1. Many fans think Kelly is the best chance at winning, only brings risks because of maturity. 2. Coaches rarely bag on their QBs, yet QBs get replaced every year. Reich and Ballard have been lucky so far that the media is still pitching soft balls on the topic, and haven't had to defend or speculate.  3. They only waived him to put him on the PS... you're double dipping. And they also made him one of the highest paid PS players in the league. If they did not like him, they would have booted him when they signed Hoyer. They didn't.  4. IIRC, Kelly wasn't even brought up to the 53 until the day before Miami. He got zero first team snaps lol.. He was never an option outside of emergency.
    • They Both will be breaking this record.. Tom could actully do it first, which is what you probably dont want to see lol. Actually given how terrible the Bengals are. If he doesn't break it before Brees is that kind of a shock? I guess 4 is a stretch. But why else would a 40 something yearh old rich dude with 6 rings continue to play? lol i think it was for this record all along. 
    • I'd prefer to save TY for the last home game. We're not going to beat NO, so would prefer to not put him at risk if not 100%
    • I was able to phone in week 14, I clinched a conference playoff spot in week 13, and my overall league playoff matchup looked like I was going to get totally washed. (My opponents team was:   QB: Jackson RB: Elliot, Cook WR: Diggs, DJ Moore TE: Andrews Flex: Alshon Jeffery  K: Boswell DST: Minnesota    Went into the Monday night game with a 3.28 point lead and Jeffery went down with a big 0 so I got the highly improbable win. PLUS I didn’t have to worry about and started a Steelers RB and boy did that ever feel good!)   So this week’s matchup is a double playoff matchup. My opponent is my opponent in both the conference, and overall league playoff matchups.    My roster: QB: Watson RB: Zeke, ? WR: Hopkins, Jones TE: ? Flex: ? K: Gonzalez DST: 49ers   The questions:   RB I picked up DeAndre Washington on waivers hoping he would be the starter at least this week. Then Josh Jacobs MRI came back clean. If Jacobs is out and he starts he’s an instant starter at RB. But I think there’s a pretty low probability of that this week. Which sucks because I thought that after all I’ve been through with Steelers RBs this season Washington was the fantasy gods way of making it up to me in the playoffs. They have scorned me yet again.    I have Mack and he’s healthy, but he has a difficult matchup with the Saints, and Reich loves nothing more than to neuter a RB’s fantasy value the way he churns them in and out of games.    Conner is back. *heavy sigh*. Samuels is out again, and Snell has not been good at all. Buffalo has actually coughed up quite a few points to RBs of late. But it’s Conner. And the Steelers. That one week of refuge from this situation was so nice...   I have Adrian Peterson as well. Guice is done for the season but they gave the Eagles this week. He’s more of a week 16 option against the Giants.    Finally I have Jordan Howard. Who hasn’t played in forever, and isn’t a lock to play this week, and I think he’s too risky to start even if he does, no real consideration here.    WR The great Julio Jones TD drought of 2019 continues. Ridley is out so Jones is definitely the top target at WR. Richard Sherman is out for the 49ers, but that defense is still good. I don’t think I’m considering benching Jones, but I’m sure not in love with him these days.    DeVante Parker tried to do his best to sink me last week with his injury, but I was able to hold on and win in spite of it. He seems likely to play this week and has a favorable matchup against the Giants. If he starts he’s penciled in at flex.    Golden Tate has a foot injury, and he and Eli Manning didn’t accomplish much Monday. With the three WRs above him I just don’t see any way I can seriously consider starting him anywhere this week.    TE Darren Waller continues to be highly inconsistent. He’s a guy who could ruin your playoffs with a dud. I also have the dynamic of Washington. If Washington starts at RB and I start Waller I’m playing those two against each other and limiting my TD potential.    I picked up Tyler Higbee on waivers this week. 35 points in the last two weeks, but that was against the worst and second worst defense against TEs. He plays Dallas this week which is the 11th worst, so it’s a decent matchup, but do I trust the Rams offense to keep him scoring in the fantasy playoffs?    Flex Everyone mentioned above is a flex candidate. Like I said, if Parker is back and healthy I feel like I have to give him the nod against the Giants, but I’m interested to hear cases for anyone else at the spot. 
    • They are in a rare position with all the draft capital. They can do basically whatever they want this year and next. If they do things right, they could be a very different team in 2021. And I'm not sure I'd bank everything on Tua with their early pick. I'd much rather have Lawrence next year.
