Colts weather update: Roof should be open
The Colts play at home tomorrow against the Texans. It looks to be a very nice day out though, and the roof and the window could be open in the stadium.
As of right now, the weather in Indianapolis looks very nice tomorrow for game time. It will be close to 80 degrees and partly cloudy. I would expect the roof and the window to be open in Lucas Oil Stadium, although an official decision has yet to be made.
Whenever the weather is nice enough to have the roof open, it is a pleasant experience. The Colts rarely play in warm enough weather to take advantage of the retractable roof, but tomorrow should be one of those days.
This will also be the best weather the Colts have played in since week 1 when they played at home against the Bengals. They shouldn’t have to deal with wind, and they finally won’t have to deal with the threat of rain either. That will be a nice change.
Both teams play in stadiums with retractable roofs, so this shouldn’t give any team an advantage. It should benefit both teams equally. The turf will also be an equal playing field since both teams are used to that as well.
Expect both teams to try to air it out in the good weather. Andrew Luck and Deshaun Watson should be able to pass the ball effectively. But as always, the running game will still be an important part of what both teams want to do.
This game will be decided by who the better team is, and not the weather. That is something that both teams can be thankful for.
