2019 Opponent Scouting Report: Broncos Offense Flacco slightly better than his linemen

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports Overview

On October 27, 2019 the Indianapolis Colts will host the Denver Broncos. In this Week 8 match-up I sought to understand our opponent and get a better idea of how they may attack our Colts.

Since 2002 the Colts are 11-5 against the Broncos, including three playoff wins. The last five meetings haven’t gone as well for our Colts going 2-3 in that span. These Broncos have yet to see a Frank Reich led Indy team, while our Colts have never seen a Vic...

Colts Wednesday Injury Report for Week 8: Hooker a full participant, 5 Colts DNP

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

The Indianapolis Colts have become a successful team in recent weeks, and most of it has come on the heels of some very important pieces being injured through those victories. Last week Tyquan Lewis, Malik Hooker, and Kenny Moore all sat against the Houston Texans, and previous to their bye, the Colts had numerous players banged up as well.

This week the Colts prepare for the Denver Broncos, and they’re looking for some of those injuries to subside in order to...

Blake Pace’s NFL power rankings through Week Seven

Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

Third time around, let’s do the dang thing.

The one thing I’ll say about this year compared to last season, it was pretty clear by this point in 2018 that the four best teams were New England, Kansas City, Los Angeles (Rams) and New Orleans. Now, I don’t think we’re anywhere near that top four — I think there are around eight teams that could make it to the AFC and NFC championship games. I’m assuming I’ll feel more confident about a “top...

While it hasn’t always been pretty, the Colts sit atop the AFC South almost halfway through the year.

Should the Colts trade for Stefon Diggs?

Photo by Nuccio DiNuzzo/Getty Images Stefon Diggs has been one of the best 15 receivers in the NFL over the past few seasons. A good athlete who runs very good routes and has sticky hands, Diggs has established himself as a high-end all around receiver. He has been successful in a few different offenses with different quarterbacks, and broke the 100 catch, 1000 yard threshold last year with Kirk Cousins as his quarterback. At 6’0”, 190 lbs. he is not a large receiver and isn’t overly...

Are the Colts a legitimate Super Bowl contender?

Photo by Zach Bolinger/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images

We have reached the point at which it is safe to say one thing with certainty. The Indianapolis Colts are a good football team. Frank Reich has them playing together as a balanced team that is more than capable of picking up the slack when one unit comes out flat. They’ve won in a variety of ways and against teams with a multitude of different strengths.

What’s more, they don’t appear to have any clear and obvious weakness...

Before we jump in to our waiver wire pickups I want to reiterate, and urge you once again, that you should go back and look at my piece from last week as well.
