St. Louis Rams
The 6-2 Indianapolis Colts come back home to play the Sam Bradford-less 3-6 St Louis Rams. The Colts are on 2 game winning streak, whereas the Rams are on a 3 game losing streak. However, both sides have been receiving some great performance from their playmakers, which means that this match could get interesting. You see this matchup once every 4 years so take advantage! What the Colts have to do to Win The Colts are heavy favorites in this game, but if they play lousy and make mistakes, they will almost certainly lose. They need to be sharp, these aren't the Jaguars. On offense, the Colts should try and have a balanced attack. Luck doesn't need to have the ball in his hands 40 times to win this game. The Rams don't have a great run defense, and that evident last week against the Titans. When Andrew Luck does have the ball, he will need to be efficient with the ball. He doesn't have to be overly aggressive, but he needs to be efficient. This means that he has to...

Colts QB Andrew Luck was picked off three times in Sunday's loss to St. Louis.Fantasy Spin:By all accounts, it was Luck's poorest outing of the season. Still, he salvaged the day somewhat for fantasy owners by racking up 353 yards through the air. Even if most of it was obtained during garbage time, the yardage total was his highest of the season. The second-year phenom will...

The Colts clearly struggled on both sides of the ball for the majority of the game but, most notably, offensively. A lot of it had to do with adjusting...
Tavon Austin his finally having the type of performance that warranted him have a high first round grade in last year’s NFL Draft. Austin has been driving the Colts crazy on special teams today, and I’m sure this blazing 98 yard punt return won’t make Chuck Pagano feel any better. H/T Bleacher Report
Reggie Wayne has soared to uncommon heights over his 13 many-splendored seasons as an Indianapolis Colts wide receiver. He is eighth in NFL history with 1,006 receptions and 11th with 13,566 receiving yards.
He is poised on the brink of truly historic achievement.
He is poised on wounded knee.
Wayne faces the heftiest challenge of his spectacular career. He suffered a torn anterior...
Indianapolis Colts running back Trent Richardson is practicing on Friday ahead of Sunday’s game against the St. Louis Rams.
Richardson has been a major disappointment since the Colts acquired him in mid-September from the Cleveland Browns. In six games for the Cotls the 22-year-old Richardson is averaging just three yards per rush with two touchdowns.
The Colts will host the St. Louis Rams on Sunday, and will look to come out of their bye week with a victory.
Indianapolis (6-2) came back from an 18-point halftime deficit to beat the Texans last week, overcoming a sloppy start to finish on a 24-3 run.
The team comes into Sunday’s clash against the Rams ranked fifth in the league in DVOA, Football Outsiders’ all-encompassing...
From the opening drive, the St. Louis Rams took control of the game. Robert Quinn sacked Andrew Luck on a third and thirteen and forced a fumble, allowing Chris Long to pick up the pigskin and rumble for 45 yards for the first of many Ram’s scores.
Quinn and the defense made life miserable for Luck all day. Constantly under pressure, Luck looked out of sorts and uncomfortable...
The Texans suffered another heartbreaking loss this Sunday night, falling to the Indianapolis Colts 27-24 on national TV. They had a 24-12 lead going into the fourth quarter but were outscored 15-0 in the fourth to blow the lead. This game was probably the final shot to the Texans’ playoff chances this year, but some positives did come from the game.
The Texans started...
Tavon Austin has been somewhat of an enigma in his rookie season. He had 31 catches on 51 targets for 207 yards and two touchdowns until today. You can add another 138 yards and 2 touchdowns to those totals. Austin’s 4.43 speed finally caught up to him against the Indianapolis Colts. Flashing brilliance, he returned a punt 98 yards for a score and both of his receptions were long...
Tavon Austin chose a good day to have his breakout game.
After nine weeks of not much production, the Rams rookie wide receiver is off to a hot start in Indianapolis.
Austin fielded a punt at the Rams' 2 yard line – a move that is generally met with rage on the sideline – made a defender miss and ran 98 yards for a touchdown.
The Rams' first-round pick wasn't done...
Tavon Austin, the first-round draft pick with uncanny speed and unlimited potential, scored on a 98-yard punt return and grabbed two long TD passes Sunday as the St. Louis Rams ended a three-game losing streak with a stunning 38-8 victory over the AFC South-leading Colts. “I’ve been patient for eight weeks and, hopefully, it’s my […]
No your eyes aren’t fooling you, that is Tavon Austin making Indianapolis Colts defenders look absolutely foolish today at the RCA Dome.
Austin struck again, right after his 98 yard punt return, by catching this 57 yard bomb, with not a single Colts defender near him.
The Rams will play at Indianapolis without two key offensive players - right guard Harvey Dahl and tight end Lance Kendricks.
Both were inactive Sunday. St. Louis (3-6) had already ruled out Dahl because of a knee injury. Kendricks was listed as doubtful with a broken finger.
St. Louis also put injured backup quarterback Brady Quinn on the inactive list.
The Rams' other inactive...

Kellen Clemens has predictably struggled, completing 37 of 70 for 387 yards, 1 touchdown, and 2 interceptions in relief of the injured Sam Bradford. However, the supporting cast has done a good job of rising up around him and, as a result, the Rams have lost their last 2 games by a combined 12 points despite playing a top level Seattle team and a sneaky...
Tavon Austin went from bust to boom in one fell swoop on Sunday.
Austin, who was the eighth overall pick in April’s draft, hadn’t done much to confirm his lofty draft status through the first nine weeks of his rookie season. But the speedy receiver did all he could to change those opinions with a big day against the Colts on Sunday.
Austin scored three touchdowns in a 12-minute...
