Colts beat Chiefs in Wild Card Round

leave a comment »

This week the Indianapolis Colts played against the Kansas City Chiefs at home to start off the Wild Card weekend. With a full house, Colts fans were ready for a second win over the Chiefs, and the first win of the playoffs.

The game started out with both teams scoring on opening drives. But for Kansas it seemed like it was going to be a long game as star running back Jamaal Charles was taken out of the game early on with a concussion. He would not return for the rest of the game.

But the Chiefs were not detered and went on ahead and outscore the Colts 31-10 at halftime. The start of the second half did not go very well for the Colts as the first pass from Andrew Luck ended up as an interception which led to a Chiefs Touch Down 38-10 By now everyone was starting to doubt the Colts, thinking the game is over. But the Colts rally back and get a TD of their own followed by a Robert Mathis signature strip/sack recovered by Indy.

With the Colts down 38-24 the Chiefs get a field goal of their own after an T.Y. Hilton could not hold onto the ball and another interception was caused. But the Colts come right back and score again, and trail by ten.

One of the most memorable plays of the entire game was when Luck passed the ball off to Donald Brown for a TD, but Brown fumbled the ball. Luck then picked up the ball and dove for the TD. After a field goal from the Chiefs the Colts take the lead for the first time in the game with a Hilton TD. 45-44.

Now all the Colts had to do was hold off the Chiefs for a little over 4 minutes. After a failed 4th down the Colts finish the game in a victory formation, and win 45-44. This marks the NFL’s second largest comeback. Ever. The first made by, guess who, Peyton Manning.

After the Cincinnati Bengals lost at home to the San Diego Chargers the Colts will now travel to play against the New England Patriots for the first time since the 2012 regular season. This game will be on Saturday January 11th at 8:15 pm.

First NFL week

with one comment

The football season has officially begun, with the New York Giants vs the Dallas Cowboys for the opening game with the Cowboys winning. And yesterday had amazing catches, and a record that hasn’t been broken for over 60 years.

Yesterday the Indianapolis Colts played against the Chicago Bears, and this was also Andrew Luck’s first game as a Colt. The game started out in the Colts favor with a sack to Jay Cutler and an interception that led to a TD, all within the first quarter. But the Bears came back and tied the score.  Afterwards Cutler seemed to get his game on and found reciever after reciever and gained the lead. Unfortunatly the Colts could not take back the lead and the game ended 41-21 in the Bears favor. Even though the Colts lost Andrew Luck had made his first NFL TD pass, to Donne Avery.

Another rookie QB that had his first game was Robert Griffin III, with amazing passes for a win for the Redskins. RGIII also was the first QB in over 60 years to get 40+ points in the first game. He certainly has had a great start to the season, and he has a good furture ahead of him.

One other game that was amazing was the Denver Broncos vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers. This was Peyton Mannings first game back into football after 610 days on not playing, and he hasn’t lost his touch. For some it was sad to see Manning in another color but others it was a celebration time, Manning was back and playing. Happy to say they won the game 31-19 and have a chance to make it to the playoffs.

Tonight Andrew Luck got signed to the Indianapolis Colts in the first round draft pick.  After announcing on Tuesday that Luck will be a Colt next season, the Colts finally got him.

Andrew Luck graduated from Stanford University, where (in 2009) he was the first starting QB Freshman since 1996. And in three years Luck

completed:
Completed 713 passes
Got a total of  10,387 yards

Andrew Luck is part of the rebuilding of the Colts, and the first of new players since 1993 when Manning was drafted. I wish him Luck and a good season, I cannot wait to see how well he fits in with his new team members.
