Indianapolis Colts Schedule in 2014
The Indianapolis Colts are looking to take the next step in 2014, and that
will require some big wins both at home and on the road this season. The Colts will face and early test on September 7th when
they travel to Denver to take on the reigning AFC Champion Broncos and former Colts quarterback Peyton Manning. Manning had
some great years for the Colts, but now he's playing on an opposing team and the Colts fans will have to root against him.
Indy quarterback Andrew Luck would love to outplay Manning to show he's the next great Colts quarterback.
face another tough game on November 16th when they host the New England Patriots. These two franchises have struck up quite
the rivalry in recent years, so the action on the field in this matchup is sure to be scintillating. The Pats have one of
the best quarterbacks to ever put on pads in Tom Brady, and the Colts defensive front will be looking to put some real pressure
on him in this contest. A victory against the Pats would signal to the rest of the AFC that the Colts are one of the best
teams in the conference.
Indianapolis will travel to Dallas on December 21st to face the Cowboys in Week 16, and this
game could mean a lot to where Indy will be seeded in the playoffs. The Cowboys have one of the most dynamic players in the
league in wide receiver Dez Bryant, whose speed and size makes him a nightmare to cover. It will be up to the Indianapolis
secondary to contain Bryant and the rest of the Dallas offense. The 2014 season has more great matchups awaiting the Colts,
so take a look at the full schedule to see what other teams Indianapolis will take on this season.
Colts Team Info
If you follow football at all, you probably know a thing or two about the Indianapolis Colts, and that's
because they're always loaded with playmakers that have made them a consistent threat to run the table and win the big one
for more than a decade. As the Colts look to get back to the top of the ultra-competitive AFC, games are sure to be filled
with eye-popping throws, spectacular catches and nail-biting moments that you'll be recalling long after it's all over. Playing
in the AFC South is no cakewalk, but with a quarterback like Andrew Luck at the helm it's a lot easier to net some big wins
throughout the season. Luck helped the Colts capture the division title in 2013, a feat that the team is looking to duplicate
this season. This team could have it takes to make a deep run in the playoffs with another year of seasoning, so stay tuned
and see how things shake out in 2014.
Lucas Oil Stadium is just simply one of those great
venues that is always bursting at the seams with passion and energy, though that's not something that you're going to figure
out sitting at home watching on that disappointing little flatscreen. It's always a good time to put down the remote, pick
up your favorite team gear and get out to see a great game filled with some of the brightest stars of both today and tomorrow
as the Colts look to rise back up the AFC standings. Home games are great, but road games are a blast as well, and fans will
have eight opportunities to catch both this season. The Colts have a great group of fans, and those fans make for an electricity
in the air at any Colts contest. Be there in the stands this season, whether at Lucas Oil or another great venue across the
country, to see Indianapolis take on some tough opponents and play their best.
Indianapolis Colts Trivia
former Colts quarterback revolutionized the game with his passing?
The answer is Johnny Unitas, who went down as one
of the best passers of his generation. He paved the way for the pass-happy NFL that we know today.
The Indianapolis Colts franchise was founded back in 1953, when they first took the field as the Baltimore
Colts. The Colts broke the hearts of many a football fan in Baltimore when they moved to Indianapolis, but were met with open
arms by their new city and fans. The franchise captured its first Super Bowl victory in 1970 and won it all again in 2006,
the latter coming behind the arm of quarterback Peyton Manning. Manning and Johnny Unitas are generally considered to be the
best players to ever wear a Colts uniform, though fans are hoping that Andrew Luck will be able to join that pantheon. The
Colts are seeking another Super Bowl win, and could be on track to make that happen sooner rather than later.
