Your Indianapolis Colts (1-1) have another road game in the early season, this time in rainy Baltimore to play the Ravens (2-0).

 

 

Gardner Minshew will start in place of rookie Anthony Richardson who sustained a concussion during last week's win against the Texans. Ryan Kelly has been playing great for the Colts, but he too will be out and will be replaced by Wesley French.

Seven Ravens starters have been ruled out for this game in addition to three who were placed on IR 

 

With so many Ravens players out, the Colts may  have a great chance to steal one on the road. It should be a fun game.

 

What are your thoughts on this game?

 

Cheer on your team. Good luck! :colts:

I chose the Ravens but I think we have a chance. 1 to 2, and 1 were my other votes. Go Colts.

Colts are around top 5 in pass rush with 8 Sacks, and Ravens gave up 4 against Texans and now they've a backup OL protecting Lamar. So I predicted 3-4 Sacks. 

 

If it were AR as QB, I'd have no hard time picking Colts. With Minshew still, Colts can win if they play clinically without turnovers.

 

Only problem now is that Ravens prepare very well for the games and are capable of springing out surprises . In spite of all the injuries, it's their game to lose or get overpowered.

I usually pick Indy every week but Baltimore has the better team. Still doesn't mean we can't win the game. We went into KC in 2019 with Brissett and beat Mahomes. Anything can happen.

The Ravens have 10 starters out, 3 of which are not on the injury report because they are on IR. They may still win but the Colts have a very good chance to win today with so many starters being out.

 

The heavy rain may be the x-factor.  It has been raining since yesterday on the East Coast, with rain being heavier at times. I looked at the forecast for Baltimore. The rain is supposed to get heavier after 1 and last through the end of the game.

I hope it pours down rain and we win Sad Jeanne Moreau GIF

The Ravens may be missing 10 starters.

But the Colts are playing their 3rd string Center, their backup Quarterback, their backup Running Back, a Right Guard that shouldn't be starting, a Wide Receiver that has been all but invisible, and a pair of Corners that shouldn't be starting.

 

The odds will be even.

I do.  After playing Jacksonville and Houston.  I've also watched him for the past 2 seasons.  I'll be glad if he becomes Mr. Amazing.  And will eat my crow when it is served to me.  But I'm not convinced yet.

So refreshing to see a coach holding players accountable.

It’s AMAZING. REFRESHING to have a coach not deal with people’s poor performance. It’s honesty seems like to me that it’s the reason we come out looking so focused.

Thanks again for opening the thread, NFLfan!

I chose Colts and 3-4.  I think the running game will be good for the Colts today and the rain will affect the Raven's passing.

With so many strarters out it really does even things out.  We can steal this one with Minsh at the helm.

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

    • I do feel bad for the diehards that lived in Baltimore when this took place. That had to suck, 1 minute you have had a team for years, then all the sudden you guys witness the ol' Mayflower semi headed our way to Indy. Baltimore Colts had tons of great history, 2 NFL Championships = 1958, 1959, and a SB win in 1970. Johnny Unitas was regarded the GOAT by most until Montana came along.
    • So if this was the chart shown here earliest, how would it have affected the dialog from our "knowledgeable" Colts fans?  Asking:  How good is Gus and staff at designing highly effective blitz packages?  How good are our players as blitzers.   To point out:   Our 4 man rush was asked to protect the edges and run lanes at a high level. I believe they graded very well at it. You give up a little pass rush doing this on none passing downs.  We have watched Gus's back seven allow backups to shred us many times. Hopefully, our talent/experience together brings improvement this season.  And we definitely need to blitz more.
    • I almost created another I hate Gus Bradley’s system tangent post with his lack of blitzing but caught myself  
    • I think this quote from that article will explain why:   ”Pressure can come from a pass rusher beating the blocker across from him cleanly, from a quarterback bailing out of a clean pocket or from a quarterback holding onto the ball too long due to coverage and lack of receiver separation, among other reasons.”   And that’s honestly the colts pass rush in a nutshell:  meh.  It’s not bad, it’s not good.  It’s just ok.  Regarding the quote above, I believe both cases.  There were times someone got to the qb in a hurry.  And due to the qbs we played, there were also self-induced pressures.
    • To be real, I have more faith in the DBs (outside of FS) than the LBs.  LBs are kind meh in pass coverage.  They’re on the slow side.  I know our corners are slow but at least the scheme plays into them being slow.  Our LBs are going to have a hard time keeping up with receivers and even tight ends who can burn them deep or on quick hitters.
