Colts have chance to lock up the division in the next two weeks

Recommended Posts

If by some chance we split with Houston but beat the Titians and Jags and Houston ends up with the better overall record would we still win the division with a better division record? Has that ever happened before in any division? Just curious, hopefully the Colts just win it out right.

The team with the best over all record wins the division.  If records are tied, then the tie breaks kick in. Beating Houston next week is absolutely critical.

Titans always play very good defense against us. The difference this time is we might have all our WR back.

It’s looking more and more like only one team from the AFC South is getting in the playoffs this season.  Winning the division is critical.  Gotta do it the hard way by beating everyone else in the division now since we blew games against lesser teams like Pittsburgh and Miami.

Keep a eye on KC. It would not surprise me if Oakland wins that division and they have to fight for a wildcard. Their defense is not good. Chargers always play then tough. I wouldn’t be shocked if the chargers win. Just a side note chargers trained in Colorado this week getting used to the elevation. KC stayed in KC.

They dont always play good D vs us. They just so happened to play good D last time. We usually put up lots of points on them. Any close game recently has been with Jacoby under center.

I think it is still possible (maybe likely the second wild card comes from the South.  Currently the Texans have it.   The Raiders are the only other 6-4 team.  Their remaining schedule is - Jets, Chiefs, Titans, Jags, Chargers and Broncos.  4 of 6 on the road.  I see them going 3-3.

The Nelson "NO TD" celebration pic should be framed and hung on the wall in their locker room.

Thursday isn’t going to be a cakewalk by any means. The Ravens embarrassed the Texans yesterday, and they know that Thursday is pretty much a playoff game. They’re going to bring it at home.

Houston sports talk 610 AM just announced TY will suit up for the game but nothing official yet on his status. One of the two hosts said he is going home to drink cough syrup and salt water. This town fears the Colts more than anyone or at least the Colts are in their heads more than anyone.

That goes both ways as the Colts have shown over the past years. DeAndre Hopkins is whining today about the officiating in the trouncing by the Ravens.

Hopefully his mommy will be at the Colts game should they get crushed again to comfort him and wuv him.

This is why this game is HUGE. A win in Houston, coming home and getting healthy at receiver puts us in contention mode.

I feel good about this team if we can get this win on Thursday and start getting some of our boys back.  I'm not even scared of Baltimore.  I think we'd play a really good game against them with our full squad back.

Thursday game depends on who is available to play. It’s a good thing Reich has only ruled out 2 players.

This. Oakland has climbed out of their hole but I still think they will miss out on the wild card.

Interesting. I’m thinking the Texans might have a better shot at clinching a wildcard spot than Indy does.  If the Colts don’t win the South they could find themselves on the outside looking in. Raiders and Steelers losses could bite them. Who knows though?

Thursday night's game essentially counts as two games, because the winner will have the tiebreaker advantage over the other. A tie would be a win for the Colts since they would keep their current tiebreaker advantage.

In this particular game, a tie would be a win for us. I would take that.

I think we can do it.  Something about the Texans just feels like they're less than the sum of their parts, and we are coming off the best team effort all season

All teams should be scared of Baltimore.

Same. I think our defense is fast enough to contain Lamar if we ever match up in the future. Don't care how scary Baltimore looks in the regular season. Records reset in the playoffs and it's a whole 'nother ball game. 

 

We need to beat Houston on Thursday. I cannot take the Texans seriously as a playoff team with BoB coaching and no Watt anchoring their defense.

I'm not scared of anyone in the playoffs if we are as healthy as we were last season. This team is deep enough and can slow the game down to play tough against anyone. The Patriots have some serious work to do from now until playoffs. I'm not even sure they are the team to beat.

Houston is leaderless, and it is going to show. They have traded the farm away for quick fixes, and that's going to bite in the near future. This defense started the year with Watt and Clowney, and now have neither. They weren't that intimidating to begin with after the beatdown we gave them in January. Now they really aren't.

Top heavy team. They go as far as Watson, Hopkins, and Watt takes em. That’s why Watt’s injury is so huge.

Same old Baltimore. Strong on defense as usual. Jackson looks scary but if you can get a handle on his runs I dont think hes all that accomplished as a passer. Weve seen the Chargers make adjustments to slow him down. I think it can be done again. Weve got good speed on defense and we play the run pretty good. I think we can make a fight out of it.

Really don’t know why people aren’t afraid of Baltimore. Since they got Peters that defense has been lights out. They gave a beat down to Seattle, New England and Houston. We really don’t have an offense to expose good defensive teams.

Baltimore is scary. They are clearly the best team in the AFC. You really can’t stop the run. They put Ingram back there with Jackson and you don’t know who will run. Then they even put RG111 back there with those two sometimes. I think they could win even if they had to play in NE. Even their great defense didn’t have a answer for them.

This is a good point. Will he be able to figure them out the second time around. If he does that is a great indication of how good he is.

Baltimore is a very good team but to me it's not a new show.  Baltimore is good every single year on defense so I don't know what you're scared of.  You expect good defense when you play them off the top.   Offensively I don't think what they are running is anything new that the league hasn't seen.  I just feel that if you get that QB in a position where he has to throw often we can play a good ball game against them. I think we are mentally tough enough to play ball with them. We can make it a back and forth type of game I believe and we are very used to playing back and forth type ball.

Lamar has been throwing the ball very well.  Over 66% completion, 19 TD's and 5 INT's.   It's a tough offense to stop.   They haven't scored less than 23 points in a game.   Scored over 40 points 3 times (59,49,41).   I think they are definitely the team to be afraid of.

    • Probably one of the worst signings in Colts history.
    • Really like TY really need to talk how many yards he has right now...less then 600 wow.
    • I feel the same.     Bill explains- “I heard about this, and evidently this is our production people on the TV show that were there,” Belichick said, via Pats Pulpit. “I have absolutely nothing to do — we have absolutely nothing to do with anything that they produce, direct, shoot or anything. I’ve never even seen any of their tapes or anything else. So this is something that we 100 percent have zero involvement with. This is something that you would have to talk to the production people about and what they were doing and whatever it was.”   A team really doesn't need a special production video team to record the upcoming opponents sidelines/coaches.  Think about it, someone placed in the stands with an advanced smartphone with tons of memory can take HQ video from the stands wearing normal non team oriented clothing.  They can later synch it up to scouts notes (who was calling plays, how their arm, hands were vs. what was run, down/distance, etc) to see if some gestures tip certain plays... etc. They also have access after a game to All 22 coaches film, to synch the hand written notes up to.     Advance scouts scout every team. They also get the 'scout team' prepped to emulate the upcoming opponents formations/p\lays.     That's a fine.  Big one. They should just hire a college kid with an huge smartphone to film for them...  ooops!  ;)   Every team has advance scouts doing extensive note taking on upcoming opponents, and All 22 video to correlate. OTOH, rules were broken...
    • I actually haven't been to any of those ones except Fenway which I found great with atmosphere and just how it felt walking around the ballpark and way they had it set up
    • Long story short, the Colts didn't tank and were a busted run against the Jags from not getting Luck. It doesn't really matter anymore and it arguably never really did, but damn it, I find the "Colts tanked for Luck" narrative annoying. I watched those games that year for some reason. Kerry Collins was washed up. Curtis Painter got an honest shot that might have gone a game or two longer than it should have, but it is what it is and Dan Orlovsky was like a glass of water after Painter. If you're tanking, you play Painter. Anyway, whatever. I should let this one go..
