Indianapolis Colts vs. San Diego Chargers

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General Colts Chatter,This Week's Matchup Report by admin on Saturday 22 November 2008 at 8:31 pm

These two teams are going in opposite directions as the Colts have won three games in a row to improve to 6-4 on the season while the Chargers are 4-6 and have lost 3 of their last 4 games.  The Chargers have won the last three meetings in this series but Norv Turner has been the coach that everyone thought he would be this season.  The Chargers will likely be feeding the ball often to LaDainian Tomlinson against a Colts’ defense that is allowing 138.5 yards rushing per game and 4.3 ypc.  Still, Philip Rivers will take his shots downfield but he better be careful against a Colts’ defense that has only allowed 2 TD passes and has 10 interceptions! 

The Colts will likely come out throwing the ball to try to get an early lead to protect the defense.  Peyton Manning is starting to get into a groove after a slow start to the season.  The Chargers are allowing 267.0 yards passing per game so look for Reggie Wayne, Anthony Gonzalez and Dallas Clark to have big games.  It would really be helpful if Joseph Addai gave Manning some ground support in this game.

PREDICTION:  INDIANAPOLIS COLTS 34, SAN DIEGO CHARGERS 28

The Indianapolis Colts lose CB Marlin Jackson for the season

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General Colts Chatter,Injury Reports by admin on Sunday 9 November 2008 at 12:46 pm

The Colts have lost CB Marlin Jackson for the season due to a torn ACL.  This will really hurt the Colts defense as Jackson played in 7 games this season and he had 47 tackles and 1 pass defensed.  Jackson really comes up well against the run but he’s not exactly the best defender out there against the pass.  Still, the Colts couldn’t afford to lose Jackson.
