The Gray Area: Chargers End Colts’ Run Of “Luck”

Concluding the Week 6 NFL schedule will be the Indianapolis Colts and the San Diego Chargers on “Monday Night Football,” which looks as if like it’ll be a high scoring contest.

The Chargers (2-3), for the time being, will be trying to get things...

Andrew Luck, Colts Can Take Big Step in Race for AFC Supremacy With Strong Showing Against Chargers

The Indianapolis Colts are already the pseudo-champions of the NFC. They have won at San Francisco and beat visiting Seattle last week. The 49ers and Seahawks opened the season as NFC Super Bowl favorites, and Seattle still is at 11-2 to win the conference. However, the Colts are, of course, in the AFC, where the offensively unstoppable Denver Broncos reside and are 5-1 overall...

MNF Week 6: The Rise of Andrew Luck

Andrew Luck is a star. He was born to be a star and he was bred to be a star. Ever since he was a junior at Stanford, he’s been touted the next big star in the NFL. No, he didn’t win a Heisman like Robert Griffin III did. No, he never won a National Championship like Cam Newton did. But ask any NFL scout, GM or head coach, and they’ll tell you if they had to do the 2012 draft...

Pagano brothers set to scrap in Colts vs Bolts

You can pretty much bet that if John Pagano tried to call Chuck Pagano this week, the older brother didn't pick up. While the brothers have coached against each other before, Monday night's edition of the sibling rivalry will be the first since Chuck became head coach of the Indianapolis Colts and John was promoted to defensive coordinator of the San Diego Chargers. Chuck...

Colts Injury Report: Ahmad Bradshaw, Laron Landry, Erik Walden

The Indianapolis Colts placed running back Ahmad Bradshaw on their injured reserve list this past week for the neck injury he suffered against the Jacksonville Jaguars in week four. At first, it looked like the veteran back would only miss a couple of weeks, but  the neck didn’t heal properly and Bradshaw elected to have surgery to repair the damage. This decision is not only...

After man-handling the 49ers and the Jaguars, and winning a tough contest with Seattle, the 4-1 Indianapolis Colts head west for Andrew Luck’s Monday Night debut against the San Diego Chargers.

Receiver T.Y. Hilton no longer being underutilized

More T.Y. to come? Remember when it was fair to ask whether the Colts were underutilizing receiver T.Y. Hilton? That question would have been fair game just a few weeks ago. But after Sunday’s career-best performance (140 yards) against the Seattle Seahawks it no longer seems applicable. Hilton said a big reason he has been so good — with two 100-yard games in five outings...

Fantasy Football: It’s now or never for Trent Richardson

When the news broke that Running back Trent Richardson had been traded from the Cleveland Browns to the Indianapolis Colts, his value skyrocketed. He turned into an untradeable running back that owners believed would lead their fantasy teams to the Promised Land. However, Trent Richardson has been nothing but a disappointment as he has rushed for only 256 yards as a member of the...

A Good Test for the Pass Defense

The Indianapolis Colts will face the San Diego Chargers this week and their quarterback Philip Rivers. Rivers is a above average quarterback who provides a very good test for the Colts' pass defense. He also offers something the Colts have not faced this year, a real top 10 passing quarterback.The last few years, many were complaining about Philip Rivers' declining play....

Indianapolis Colts at San Diego Chargers: 2013 Week 6 NFL Pick

Indianapolis Colts (4-1) at San Diego Chargers (2-3) I was dead wrong about the Colts this season. In my defense, the logic was sound. The Colts were not an 11 win team last year. 7 of their 11 wins came by a touchdown or less against a team that finished with a record of 7-9 or worse. They had a terrible offensive line and defense and finished the season 25th in DVOA, which I think...

San Diego Chargers Monday Night Football preview

After a gut wrenching loss late Sunday night against the Raiders, the Chargers now must refocus and go against one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL.That quarterback is Andrew Luck. He's been nothing short of spectacular this year, and I'd argue he's already a top 5 QB in the league, yet is still underrated. He's really fun to watch. With most of the pressure...
