Indianapolis Colts Schedule
As the 2014 NFL season gets underway there is no better place to be than Indianapolis,
home of the defending AFC South champion Colts. The Colts also made the playoffs for the second straight year since Andrew
Luck took over as starting quarterback and will be looking not only to repeat as division champions but to make a deeper run
in this year's playoffs. It will not be easy for the Colts to go undefeated in their division again this year but the team
definitely helped themselves in the 2014 NFL Draft. The Colts spent their first pick on offensive tackle Jack Mewhort out
of Ohio State who should help shore up the line and keep Luck comfortable in the pocket. Luck will also be aided by the team's
second round pick, Donte Moncrief a wide receiver from Mississippi. One of the most potent offenses in the NFL has become
even more dangerous and the Colts will be entering the 2014 season with Super Bowl aspirations. Indianapolis is once again
abuzz with football fever and you will want to get tickets to all of the big games to show the Colts some support.
Colts will open up their home 2014 schedule with a Monday Night Football showdown against the Philadelphia Eagles on September
15th. This game features two of the most exciting teams in the league and should be an offensive shootout. On the 28th the
Tennessee Titans come to town for a division showdown that could prove to be one of the most important home games of the year.
The Titans finished second in the AFC South last year and could once again be contenders if they can avoid the injuries that
plagued the team last season. Sunday November 16th brings Tom Brady and the New England Patriots to Lucas Oil Stadium. Tom
Brady versus Andrew Luck represents a match up between two of the NFL's elite quarterbacks and this could be a game for the
ages. A second division match up takes place on November 23rd when the Jacksonville Jaguars visit Indianapolis, and while
the Jags struggled through last season the Colts should expect to see a vastly improved team in 2014. The final home game
of the season is another AFC South battle when the Colts take on the Houston Texans on December 14th. Other big home games
include match ups against the Washington Redskins, the Cincinnati Bengals, and the Baltimore Ravens.
Colts have taken big strides since selecting Andrew Luck first in the Draft two years ago and appear to once again be perennial
playoff contenders. Luck has not wasted any time in emerging as one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL and it appears to be
only a matter of time before he leads the team to another Super Bowl championship. Look for an even more spectacular season
from Luck in 2014 as he will have additional protection from the offensive line with the help of the Colts' number one selection
in the 2014 draft, offensive tackle Jack Mewhort out of Ohio State. T.Y. Hilton will once again be ready to receive passes
from Luck but newly drafted wide receiver Donte Moncrief will also be a valuable target for Luck and should help open up the
field for the Hilton and the other veteran receivers. The Colts also addressed defensive issues in the draft by selecting
defensive end Jonathan Newsome and inside linebacker Andrew Jackson. Expectations are high for the Colts entering the 2014
season and they will be looking for support from all of their biggest fans at every important game at Lucas Oil Stadium this
If you are expecting to see an amazing sporting event, look no further as there is
nothing that matches the thrill of being there for an exciting NFL matchup loaded with heart-pounding intensity. Whether it
is a spectacular catch, a highlight-ready run, or an eye-popping throw, the NFL has you covered if you are looking for top-tier
football action that you'll be talking about well after it's over. There has never been a better time to head out to the stands
so you can actually feel the intensity of the crowd in a way that you never can from your living room. Tickets to see the
Colts play at their home venue of Lucas Oil Stadium are always hot sellers for a reason, as the Colts are usually one of the
best teams in the AFC and often host some of the toughest opponents that the conference has to offer. Home games featuring
the Colts are always great, though there is something great about being on the road as well, as there is nothing quite like
watching your favorite team as they hope to silence the home crowd to the joy of the true fans that made the trip. Don't miss
out on any of the Indianapolis Colts action this season.
Tennessee Titans AFC South
The Indianapolis Colts
call the AFC South home, meaning that they will face off against the Tennessee Titans, the Houston Texans, and the Jacksonville
Jaguars. The Colts are the defending division champions and are riding high behind the talents of quarterback Andrew Luck.
The Texans are coming off a disappointing season but have the explosive Arian Foster in the backfield along with J.J. Watt
and number one overall pick Jadeveon Clowney on defense. The Jaguars took quarterback Blake Bortles with the number three
overall pick and appear poised for a bounce back season while the Titans are looking to see how far Jake Locker and Shonn
Greene can take their team.
The Colts franchise was established in 1953 and the team was a charter
member of the NFL. The then Baltimore Colts were one of three NFL teams to be placed in the AFC following the NFL/AFL merger.
The Baltimore Colts finished without any wins in 1982 and selected quarterback John Elway with the first overall pick. Elway
refused to play for the Colts and threatened to play baseball instead after being drafted by the New York Yankees, forcing
the Colts to trade him to Denver.
