Colts Important game coming up

with 2 comments

This week the Indianapolis Colts play at home against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Colts need to win this game in order to tie with the Jags in the AFC South division. In order for us to win the AFC south division, and make it to the playoffs, the Jags have to lose this game and one more game.

Stats If the Colts don’t make the playoffs this year, it would be their first time in 8 years. The longest streak in the NFL (San Diego has 4).

Previous matche This would be our second game this year playing against the Jags. The first time we played, the Jags won in overtime with the longest field goal in NFL history of 59 yards. Ending in a 31-28 lose for the Colts.

So it is important for the Colts to win this game, without it the Jags can guarantee a place in the playoffs. And the Colts have a small chance of making the playoffs.

Important Injuries This week quite a few quarterbacks will not be playing.
Aaron Rogers of the Green Bay Packers will not be playing this week on Sunday night game against the New England Patriots, due to a concussion last week against Detroit. This will be his first game missed since taking over for Brett Favre.

Brett Favre according to the NFL will not be playing in Monday nights game against the Chicago Bears and Joe Webb will be starting for the second time this year. Joe Webb is the third string QB for the Vikings, their second string Tavaris Jackson was injured in the third quarter of the Vikings-Giants game.

Kyle Orton is out this game when the Chiefs play against the Oakland Raiders. Tim Tebow will start for the Chiefs this week.
