The Colts have a short week coming up. They play Thursday night in New England. They better come prepared, or it could get ugly.
The Colts have had a rough start to the season. They are 1-4 so far, and have lost some games in excruciating fashion. They know that games against New England are always tough. But this one might just have a little bit more juice to it.
Everyone remembers what happened in February with the Josh McDaniels situation. He had already agreed to be the head coach of the Colts after the season, but then he pulled out of it at the last second. That put the team in panic mode and had to quickly search for a replacement.
That led to them hiring Frank Reich. But once that whole situation was over, you got the famous quote from GM Chris Ballard; “The rivalry is back on”. The Colts will definitely be extra amped to play this game. They’ll want to win for their GM and head coach.
The problem is that winning doesn’t look super possible. They are destroyed by injuries, and will be without their best receiver in T.Y. Hilton. Neither starting tackle will play either. Kenny Moore seems like he will be out too. Not a recipe for success.
New England will come out fired up as well. They will want to win for McDaniels. They just destroyed Miami on Sunday as well, so they are feeling pretty good. The Colts need to forget what happened against Houston and find a way to be competitive.
Unfortunately, this game looks like it could get ugly. This game was an exciting matchup when it was first announced. Then injuries took a hold of the Colts. Now it just looks like a blowout in waiting.
