Ryan Grant Color Rush Jersey
In case you’re wondering Ryan Grant Color Rush Jersey , the 10 pairs of numbers above are the final scores of every Luck-led Colts game against the Titans.The Colts open up as a 3-point favorite on the road in Nashville Sunday night.I’m not going to pull any punches here, so I’ll just start by saying there’s no team I’d want to see less if I were a Tennessee Titan or Titans fan than a Luck-led Colts team given the history between the two franchises, and especially not with a trip to the Playoffs on the line in primetime on Sunday night.At some point, though, you’ve got to get that monkey off your back if you’re the Titans, right? Not this week. Not this season. Probably not as long as Luck is under center if we’re being serious about it and if I may be frank, as long as Marcus Mariota is wearing baby blue and navy — “That ain’t it”, as they say.At the least, Titans QB Marcus Mariota is battling a stinger and it’s up in the air as to whether or not he’ll play on Sunday night. Marcus also left during the Colts game earlier this season and failed to finish last week’s game. Additionally, it appears Titans LBs Brian Orakpo and Sharif Finch will also be game time decisions. The Colts come into the game with the 7th ranked offense in the NFL, while the Titans are 27th in the league in total offense. The Colts are ranked 13th in total defense while the Titans are ranked 2nd in the league in total defense. Tendency tell us that teams with offense and defense ranked in the top half of the league tend to beat unbalanced teams.Add to the fact that Mariota said he felt numb and tingly down his entire arm after a hit in last week’s game, prompting an early exit with a stinger and as a result, a Blaine Gabbert sighting, and things are coming up roses for the Horseshoe. This does not bode well for the Tennessee offense. Colts fans shudder at the memory of Gabbert’s 80-yard touchdown pass to Cecil Shorts during his Jacksonville days. This week, Darius Leonard should be salivating at the opportunity to play against Gabbert again, who threw an interception to him in garbage time earlier this year when the Titans came to Indianapolis.The Titans are coming in to this week having won their last four games and notably didn’t turn the ball over on offense in either of the last two games and the Titans defense came through with a pair of turnovers in each contest. If you watch my videos or read my other work , frequently I bring up that doing just that (maintaining possession of the football on offense and being opportunistic on defense) wins football games. RB Derrick Henry has turned into a world-beater and up until Marcus Mariota left the game last week with an injury, it appeared as though this Sunday would be a highly competitive football game with postseason potential for the winning team.Bear in mind, though, that those four Titan wins in a row came against the Jets, Jaguars, Giants and Redskins. These are not exactly the most complete teams in the league. In fact, the average ranking of these four offenses is 25th. Talking up the Titan defense’s recent performances is a lot like when a boxer takes on a tomato. Sure, they won, but are you surprised or impressed? No? Well, then.Meanwhile, the Colts have turned into streak-enders as of late, stopping the Texans 9-game winning streak and then followed that up by beating the Cowboys (then on a 5-game win streak) and then came back to beat a beleaguered Giants team (who had gone 4-2 over a 6-game stretch prior to that contest). There’s the notion that the Colts are the youngest team in the league if you take Vinny out of the equation and sure, the Titans will beat the Colts eventually anyway, right?There’s a dimension in the Multiverse where the Colts lose this game (you know, like the Jacksonville game earlier this year), and yes Eric Ebron Jersey , the Titan defense is very good. Also, Tennessee playing great defense is totally predictable because Mike Vrabel, a former Pro Bowl linebacker, is the head coach. Ravens fans know that yes, defense can get you to the championship, but you win games by scoring points on offense, something Tennessee isn’t very good at.Just like many games prior to this one, the impetus is on the Colts to stop the Titan run game on defense and turn what should be good field position into points on offense. I expect a chippy, tightly-played and probably poorly-officiated contest, but barring nightmarish and unforeseen events, this Luck-led Colts team should come out victorious on Sunday night.Then we can talk about bonus football. Until then, just like Frank, Andrew & Co. have said all year long, it’s all about going 1-0 this week. INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Adam Vinatieri’s record-breaking quest could be temporarily on hold.The seemingly ageless kicker re-injured his right groin during the Indianapolis Colts‘ victory over Buffalo on Sunday, underwent an MRI on Monday and coach Frank Reich acknowledged he might miss next weekend’s game at Oakland.Vinatieri first appeared on the injury report in Week 5 before facing his former team, New England. The 43-year-old looked fine in the game Matt Slauson Color Rush Jersey , making a 54-yard field goal and finishing with six points to move within 20 of breaking Morten Andersen’s league scoring record of 2,544 points.The Colts kicker added three more field goals in Week 6 against the New York Jets and another against the Bills — though he also missed two extra points in a game for the first time in his 23-year career. He needs five points to move past Andersen.“We just know he felt a little something on the first PAT, so we are just going to see how the week progresses,” Reich said on a conference call. “We’re going to bring in some kickers, just so you guys know, but we are not going to make any decisions until later.”Vinatieri has been a model of consistency throughout his career.His legacy as the best clutch kicker in history began with two kicks in the “Snow Bowl”, one to force overtime and one to beat Oakland in overtime. That victory helped lead New England to its second Super Bowl appearance.Two weeks later, he made the winning kick in the final minute to give the Patriots their first championship since the AFL-NFL merger. He made another last-minute, Super Bowl-winning kick two years later to give the Patriots the second of their five Lombardi Trophies.The story continued after he signed with Indianapolis before the 2006 season. Vinatieri made five field goals in a divisional-round matchup at Baltimore, a game in which no touchdowns were scored, to help send the Colts on their first title run since moving to Indianapolis.Vinatieri has four championship rings, is a three-time All-Pro selection and last month broke Andersen’s record for field goals. Andersen finished with 565. Vinatieri has 571.And Vinatieri has achieved all those feats largely because of his uncanny ability to stay healthy.He’s missed only 15 games during his career, 10 coming in 2009 when he finished the season on injured reserve.This injury even caught Reich by surprise.“I thought he was just like a robot,” Reich said. “He’s a machine. But the good thing is he has that mental toughness, that mindset to do what he has done in his career. You know he has the right mindset to get past this — whatever course it should take.”Now, though , Reich & Co. must figure out their next move.Reich doesn’t anticipate Indy (2-5) signing Vinatieri’s potential replacement immediately and instead will rely on trainers to closely monitor Vinatieri’s health, consulting Vinatieri before making a decision.Keeping him out this week could work to Vinatieri’s advantage, too.The Colts have a bye following the Raiders game, giving Vinatieri two weeks to heal, then play three straight games in the climate-controlled confines of Lucas Oil Stadium.Sitting out a week also could help Vinatieri achieve his stated preference of breaking Andersen’s record on his home turf — even if this wasn’t how he planned it.“Ultimately when you’ve got a guy like Adam, who’s just so unique, we are going to listen to him,” Reich said. “We are going to listen to the trainers and that will be what will inform our decision.”NOTES: Reich provided no updates on tight end Erik Swoope, who did not return after hurting his knee Sunday, or defensive lineman Jihad Ward, who was carted off the field after appearing to injure his right ankle. … Reich also could not say whether Pro Bowl tight end Jack Doyle (hip) could return this week. Doyle has missed six straight games.
