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

How would you react if a third string quarterback randomly walked into your house today and sat on your couch?

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:

    • What ever QB we draft, Reich will know who the best of the two are between JB and who we draft. If Reich feels like the rook is better than the rook will start IMO. Regarding Jones, Giants aren't that good but he does have arguably the best RB in the league when healthy. I like Mack a lot but imagine if JB had Barkley.
    • LOL.... NYG drafted a QB that was supposed to sit a year. And they had far worse of a team (OL, etc) surrounding him. That didn't go as planned....   All this "Love needs to sit a year", and "JB needs to start another year" is what you'd like to happen, nothing else. And you're right, we don't know what Ballard or Irsay are thinking, but I'm guessing you don't have an inside track on their plans anymore than any of us. There are lots of reasons you wouldn't want a new QB sitting behind a QB like JB, so lets not act like it's a no brainer.   And why do we need to slow down on discussion of drafting out future QB... It's a discussion board. If you don't think that's what we should do, fine it's you're prerogative,  but not sure you need to tell others to "slow down".... The overwhelming majority of folks are ready for the next chapter to begin.    
    • Herbert interest me. Sure he can be looked at as a system QB, but I think all the tools are there
