Peyton’s Play…The Stretch play. It’s why he is as deadly as he is, and if you want to see it in action, click here. There’s even a nifty explanation if you’re the readin’ type.
Did you know:
The Colts have won their last six MNF games, since 2003, by a combined score of 214-135.
The Jags have only allowed 200 yards or so in their last 4 games. (Compared to 282 against Tennessee on Opening Day.)
The Jags have rushed at least 150 yards in the last five games.
The Colts are 8-3 vs. Jax since 2000 and Peyton has 20 TDs and 6 INTs.
The Jags are 7-3 on MNF and 6-1 at home on MNF.
The last time the Colts and Jags met on MNF was in 2000 at the RCA Dome, and the Colts pulled out a 43-14 victory.
Harrison needs only 77 reception yards to pass James Lofton for the 3rd spot on the NFL’s All-Time Reception Yardage List. (And this is how.)
So, what’s on the line tonight? Well, the Colts are riding a 10-game winning streak right now, dipping into the postseason last year. And they’re 5-0 so far this season, but that’s normal for our boys, right? There’s something larger on the line, however. Something bigger. It will be the first time in a long time when the Colts will be tied for first place in the AFC South.
And the Jags are the only team in the division that can pull it off.
