The greatest quarterback rivalry in NFL history began quietly with plenty of empty seats on a cloudy, cool and windy afternoon at Foxboro Stadium on Sept. 30, 2001.
The Colts went up 24-0 in the first quarter this Week 6 Thursday Night Football matchup. Could’ve been another blowout, but the Texans made of game of it.
Colts-Texans could come down to a last-second field goal, and it appears to be an excellent week to play perhaps the greatest placekicker in NFL history in the Colts’ Adam Vinatieri.
Could this be it-the first competitive Thursday night game of the 2014 NFL season? The Colts visit Houston as just a three-point favorite, and both teams are 3-2, so at the risk of being the Mary Swanson to your Lloyd Christmas, I’m saying there’s a chance.
The Houston Texans are looking better in 2014 and the Indianapolis Colts have turned things around after a slow start to the year. Former NFL quarterback and CBS analyst Chris Simms took time to talk to me about the upcoming AFC South battle on Thursday Night Football, and he had some great things to say.
After Peyton Manning and the Broncos beat the Colts in Week 1 of the NFL season, the announcers piped in with news about a surprising feat Manning had just accomplished.
Peyton Manning didn’t take a single second-half snap in the preseason, and he’s barely breaking a sweat after halftime in the regular season.
For a second straight game, the Denver Broncos started hot and finished ice cold. They were able to hold onto their first divisional win over the Kansas City Chiefs, but the grades aren’t pretty.
In a year where the Denver Broncos had three receivers with 10 or more touchdowns last season, it seems Peyton Manning is picking up right where he left off by spreading the ball around again.
After riding shotgun to Peyton Manning’s high-octane offense all of last year, Denver’s defense had the five-time MVP’s back for once.
