Andrew Luck is just seven yards away from breaking the most passing yards over a player’s first 2 seasons

Unless the Indianapolis Colts sit Andrew Luck this week, I would expect him to break Cam Newton’s record for the most passing yards over a player’s first two seasons.  Luck now needs just seven yards to jump Killer Cam. This is a huge stat, especially when you look at the guys he passed on the list.  I […]

Colts are preparing for life after Reggie Wayne

After Peyton Manning was released by the Colts in 2012, the entire franchise went into rebuilding mode with hopes of maintaining a strong team even after the Manning Era came to an end. With the release of Manning also came the release of the veteran wide receivers that played under the legendary quarterback, such as Joseph Addai and Dallas Clark. Fortunately for the Colts, Reggie...

Inconsistent Colts still find ways to win

The Colts keep giving mixed signals. They are beating some of the best teams in the NFL, knocking off four of the league's six clubs with four or fewer losses - two of them on the road. Yet Indy is ranked in the bottom half of the league in five of the six major offensive and defensive categories. So how good is this Indianapolis team? ''I think that remains to be...

The Colts are Contenders

 With the Colts’ impressive road victory over the favored 11-4 Kansas City Chiefs, the Colts have proven to be contenders going into the playoffs. It seems like the Colts play their best football against the best teams, and their worst football against the worst teams. Leading up to this game with the Chiefs, the Colts have had a string of inconsistent performances, 6 to be exact...

Overton's road to NFL keeps life in perspective

(Eds: APNewsNow.) By MICHAEL MAROT AP Sports Writer Matt Overton looks around the Colts' locker room and feels like the luckiest guy in town. It's not just because he's playing for the winners of the AFC South, a team preparing for a second straight playoff run. Or that he participated in one of the greatest one-season turnarounds in NFL history. Or just that he'...

Robert Mathis just keeps killing it

For quite some time, there was a popular belief that Robert Mathis wasn't as good as his sack numbers indicated. Dwight Freeney was the true star on that Indianapolis Colts defensive line, they'd say, and Mathis was just living off of the lack of attention opposing pass protectors were affording him.  But now, with Freeney long gone and Mathis in his thirties, we might...

Colts Getting Healthy at the Right Time

With the playoffs right around the corner, the Colts seem to be getting healthy at just the right time. Last week's injury report for the Colts included 15 players - or 28.3 percent of the roster. More significantly, last week's injury report included 9 "starters" out of 22 (40.9 percent), two more guys who have started games along the offensive line, and a special...

Indy builds momentum before embarking on playoffs

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By MICHAEL MAROT AP Sports Writer Indianapolis has found a game plan that works. The offense is starting faster and staying on the field longer. The defense is shutting down opponents and forcing miscues. And the wins are starting to pile up again. It's about time the Colts get it right - and perhaps just in time to build some momentum for a playoff run...

Colts LB Robert Mathis Actually Tried to Jump Over the Kansas City Chiefs Offensive Line

The defense stepped up big for the Indianapolis Colts Sunday against Kansas City holding the Chiefs to just 287 yards and forcing four turnovers. In fact, you could say that the defense played like a unit possessed; bound and determined to get the team a much needed win. When you play as well as they did players start to think they are capable of anything--right, Robert Mathis?From...

Jaguars-Colts Preview

The Indianapolis Colts are thinking big heading into their regular-season finale after rediscovering their winning formula in the past two weeks. With an outside shot at a first-round bye, the Colts can head into the playoffs having matched their season-best winning streak if they can rout the Jacksonville Jaguars again Sunday. Following a 2-3 stretch in which every loss was a...

Jacksonville Jaguars at Indianapolis Colts: 2013 Week 17 NFL Pick

Jacksonville Jaguars (4-11) at Indianapolis Colts (10-5) If you look at the season as a whole, the Jaguars are the worst team in the NFL. Their -182 point differential is worst in the NFL. Only Houston at -146 even comes close. Their 4-11 record is actually buoyed by a 4-2 record in games decided by a touchdown or less, as they’ve been blown out by double digits in 9 of their 11...
