Glad we don't have to play the chiefs.

 

But, we got the short end of the stick with having to play Baltimore. The Steelers should be a lot worse next year. JuJu is likely gone as well as Dupree or Heyward. And Big Ben is declining & might retire.

NFC West is going to be brutal especially if the 49ers are healthy and all of them have good Ds or good QBs.

 

Good thing every other team in our division also faces them.  If we take care of our division opponents, we should have a very good shot at having similar or better records against our out-of-division opponents compared to the other teams in our division.

 

As previously pointed out, we have 1 major advantage over TN in that we get to play LV instead of KC.  I agree w/ @Colts1324

in that I'm not convinced we have an advantage over TN with us playing Balt and them getting Pitt.

If it weren’t for the Colts history with the Steelers and that it would have meant another game in Pittsburgh I would agree with you.  That team just has the Colts number no matter what.  Not unlike the Chargers in the Manning days.

Who would we play if it goes to a 17 week schedule?? Im guessing a 2nd place team in the NFC, so either buccaneers,giants or bears

NFL hasn’t said how they will handle a week 17 yet.

Has to be a similar ranked team from NFC South division. That is the best I can think of.

 

AFC South - similar ranked team from NFC South and vice versa.

AFC North - similar ranked team from NFC North and vice versa.

AFC East - similar ranked team from NFC East and vice versa.

AFC West - similar ranked team from NFC West and vice versa.

 

Adds 1 more intra-conference team and gives us all 16 extra AFC vs NFC match ups to watch.

 

If we are playing that NFC division that year, then it will be a similar ranked team from the NFC division we played the previous year.

A lot can change but the schedule looks pretty favorable. 

 

Unfortunately most of the tougher games appear to be on the road.

 

I am looking forward to the Pats coming to Indy next season.

I get what you're saying.. the Steelers definitely have had our number as of late... though, since 2011 the Ravens are 4-1 against us.

 

The Ravens, IMO, are up and coming (if Lamar Jackson stays healthy).  The Steelers, on the other hand, are (IMO) about to start declining as Roethlisberger starts to show his age.  

 

I get what you mean about the Chargers in the Manning days.  That said, the Steelers who have dominated us for the past 15+ years are the Big Ben days for the Steelers -- they're about to be over (just like the Brady days for the Patriots ended and the Bills swept them).  I also believe we're about to enter the Reich & Ballard days here in Indy for a time to come.  Not saying you don't have a valid point, but my personal opinion is that I'd rather be playing the Steelers in 2021 than the Ravens.

That is what I am thinking too, Do the division you faced in 2019 and basically you face the division on the rotation so 2022 wed face the NFC North team

    • I'm just linking what was reported.  I don't know what race has to do with this situation, or my comments.  I think the lens you are responsible for needs adjustment.    I don't confuse race with culture, or use the terms interchangeably.  Maybe that's how you read things.  Maybe that's how moderators read things, then attribute banned topics to someone who isn't even talking about them.   "They all", the ex....EX players who complain about culture, whatever they're talking about, amount to about 5 high profile players over the past 5 years, all of whom were either cut or not resigned.  Not sure why they are held up as the pedestal of defining what HOU is or is not.   What do the current 90 players on the team feel about the culture?  How about Tyrod, who just joined the team?  About 150 players have churned through the HOU roster in that time.  Many of them financially independent millionaires, free to say what they want. 150 to 5 have not complain about culture.  IMO, maybe the 5 need new lenses.   Its clearly reported what Watson's issue is with the team, and it started a month after he signed a new contract with a "bad" organization and just as the search for a new HC began.  
    • 2017: Good: Garett Bolles  Worst: Solomon Thomas Colts: Malik Hooker Late: Eddie Jackson/George Kittle   2018: Good: Darius Leonard Worst - Josh Jackson? Colts Darius Leonard, Quenton Nelson,  Late - Fred Warner?    2019: Good - DK Metcalf  Worst - Jerry Tillery Colts - Parris Campbell Late - Chauncey Gardner-Johnson   2020 Good - Tristan Wirfs Worst - Jordan Love(too early?) Colts - Michael Pittman Jr Late - Alex Highsmith?
    • IDK man. I watched every game last year, and several twice. TY simply isn't get a lot of separation (unless he's running in the seam). Compare the other WRs to TY. Here's all the pass catchers from 2020, and I included TY's from 2019 too.   TY20 - 1.26 TY19 - 1.5 PC20 - 2.11 MP20 - 1.58 ZP20 - 1.16 MJ20 - 1.64 DH20 - 1.4 JD20 - 1.2 MAC20 - 1.57 TB20 - 1.11   It looks pretty much like my eyes thought across the board. Looking at River's advanced stats,.... River's "on target" and "bad throw" %s weren't bad. Both Brady and Mahomes had higher bad throw %s than Rivers. Along with my eyes, there just really isn't a stat out there that supports placing the blame on Rivers (over TY).
    • I’m excited for his connection with Big Mo. Similar to Luck Wentz loves his TEs and hopefully he gets more involved on offense.
