The Indianapolis Colts are looking forward to have their first win as they are still 0-3 in their NFL standings. This is their first time since Peyton Manning’s rookie season in 1998. The Colts will travel to Tampa Bay for the first time since the “Monday Night Miracle” matchup which happened in 2003. They will have a football match against the Buccaneers who are 2-1 in their current NFL standing.

Reviewing last week’s NFL battle, Indianapolis Colts suffered a loss against their match with Pittsburgh Steelers last Sunday while the Tampa Bay Buccaneers won against division rival Atlanta Falcons.

Looking on statistics, Indianapolis Colts are regulars on Monday Night Football and have accumulated nine wins in their past 10 appearances. Tampa Bay Buccaneers are hosting a Monday Night Football game for first time in eight years. They last played Monday night three years ago, losing to Carolina.

With Quarter Back Kerry Collins still recovering after suffering concussion-like symptoms during last week’s loss to Pittsburgh Steelers, Curtis Painter likely will make first NFL start for Indianapolis Colts. All Painter will have to do is manage the game wisely to grab their first win in this season. Surely, Tampa Bay Buccaneers will bring pressure.  Their defense has six sacks on the season and two interceptions.

The two NFL teams will battle starting 8:30pm Eastern Time at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. It will be broadcasted live via ESPN with announcers Mike Tirico, Jon Gruden, and Ron Jaworksi.
