leave a comment »

Tonight the 2014 NFL football season officially starts up. Kicking off with a game in Seattle against the Seattle Seahawks and the Green Bay Packers.

Last night the Indiana Fever played against the Chicago Sky in game 3 of the Eastern Finals, where the winner would go to the WNBA Finals and the other would go home. Unfortunatley the Fever fell short and lost 75-62. Despite the loss Head Coach Lin Dunn praised her team and stated that she was proud of them.

Indianapolis Colts’ owner Jim Irsay has been finned $500,000 and suspended six games for violating the NFL’s Personal Conduct Policy by driving while being intoxicated. Irsay will be on probation and have his license taken away for a year. He will be able to attend on October 9th’s game against the Houstan Texans.

On the bright side, the Colts play against the Denver Broncos in Denver Sunday night for the first Sunday Night Football game of the season!

with one comment

The Game: For those of you that missed the game on Sunday night, the Indianapolis, Colts played against the San Diego Chargers at Lucas Oil stadium in Indianapolis, for the sixth time against each other.

The Result: Chargers take the win 36-14 making it the fifth time (out of six) that the Chargers have beaten the Colts.

Important Stats: Everyone has said that Philip Rivers (#17) has a very bright future and a great career in front of him, this I agree with, Rivers so far rivers has thrown 3,362 yards this season almost tying for a record set by (add name). But has been sacked 25 times (tied with two others) for 5th worst in the NFL.

Peyton Manning (#18) on the other hand as been MVP of the year four times, thrown 3,344 yards this season and has been sacked 13 times 2nd best in the NFL. But unfortunately has thrown eleven interceptions which have lead to two losses in a row.

Highlights: In the first quarter, Colts lead by four, sacking Rivers twice and forcing the Chargers to punt, while making their first touchdown. Second quarter saw another Colts touchdown and Manning throwing an interception which lead to another field goal for San Diego. Halftime, Colts are winning 14-13.

Third quarter, Manning under pressure, tried to throw the ball away, but it was still caught by Stephen Cooper and run back for a touchdown. Then again, Manning threw the ball intended for Pierre Garçon, which was picked off, and lead to another Charger touchdown. Forth quarter ends in two more interception from Manning and a win for the Chargers 36-14.

Next Games: Next week (week 13), the Colts play at home against the Dallas Cowboys, and the Chargers play in Oakland against the Oakland Raiders.
