The Indianapolis Colts will play host to their former franchise quarterback Peyton Manning who makes his return with his undefeated (7-0) Denver Broncos this weekend. The Colts are coming off a three point overtime loss to the then undefeated Carolina Panthers.
Amid the continued controversy between the front office and the coaching staff, particularly the rift between GM Ryan Grigson and Head Coach Chuck Pagano, the players held a players only meeting to try and galvanize the team and concentrate on football and put the firing of OC Pep Hamilton as well as the front office intrusion into the day to day coaching operations of the club. Namely, the lineups coaches are directed by the front office to follow…normally a head coaching jog.
Whether or not the team can pull it together remains to be seen and you can be there to see it. Plenty of affordable tickets and great seats are still available. Be sure to get yours today!
After dismantling the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday afternoon in a 23-7 whipping, the Colts turn their eyes on the less than stellar Jacksonville Jaguars. The Colts can still move up in the seedings with a victory over the Jags. Once the seeding pans out, the Colts could be facing the Denver Broncos in a rematch of their earlier game which Denver won.
“Whether that comes to fruition or not, we’ll deal with it at that time,” Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. “Today, we did a tremendous job in all three phases. We did what we felt we had to do to win today against a really good football team.”
Great seats and tickets are still available for this season ending game.
Star Receiver Reggie Wayne out for the season
It came as no surprise to the Colts locker room as to how they would respond to the return of Peyton Manning and his Denver Broncos. The Colts ended up giving Manning a hard time, eventually causing him to fumble in the endzone which was the beginning of four unanswered Colts scores.
“I’m in some ways somewhat relieved this game is over,” Manning said. “I feel like, hopefully, we’ll get a chance to play these guys again, because that would mean we made the playoffs. We’ve got a long way to go before that, but you certainly see them being in the postseason. If there is a next time, it may be a little bit easier, because it was somewhat of an emotional week.”
The Colts next take on Case Keenum and the Houston Texans who last week fell to the only undefeated team left in the NFL, the Kansas City Chiefs. Great seats and tickets are still available!
