Colts Players React to Team’s Schedule Release


The NFL released its official schedule today for all 32 NFL teams, and the Indianapolis Colts revealed theirs, much to the delight of both their fans and players.

The Colts will not only play their normal divisional opponents in the AFC South, but also the teams of both the AFC East and NFC South in addition to two extra AFC rivalry games against the Denver Broncos and Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Colts will have to get used to the spotlight, as the team will play in 5 nationally televised primetime games. Earlier, we performed a weekly breakdown of the Colts schedule and what to expect for each matchup.

Tonight’s league unveiling is one of the most fun days of the football year, as both players and fans get to see just who and when their team will be squaring off as it relates to opponents for next season. It’s a bit like Christmas for football fans, only there’s no heavy-set man dressed in red flying around in a sleigh delivering presents, as NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell figures to have to pack on quite a few pounds for that role.

It’s great to think of the possibilities for next season and to try to anticipate the Colts win-loss record by fans for next season. However, we’re not the only ones who were excited, as a handful of Colts players were also awaiting the news in eager anticipation (Via Twitter):

It’s great to know that some players share in the excitement, just as much as the fans in this glorious football holiday!
