The Indianapolis Colts are scheduled to host the AFC Championship game against the New York Jets at Lucas Oil Stadium this Sunday. The Jets won in their last contest 29-15 in Week 16. Rex Ryan believed in his team and so far they have responded, but Peyton Manning and Co. are certainly ready to challenge their defense in all four quarters this time around.
“I just think it’s one of those things where you try to play your best this time of the year,” said Dallas Clark. “We’ve been able to have some good games for whatever reason, certain coverage’s, certain breakdowns. I think it’s been our team philosophy of just really trying to be a little sharper.”
The home team has claimed victory in the past three AFC Championship events. The Jets will be forced to rely heavily on their running game and #1 defense to stop the top ranked Colts on their own turf. New York has certainly showed us through their previous two games against Cincinnati and San Diego that nothing is guaranteed when competing in the NFL Playoffs.

The Baltimore Ravens were held scoreless through three quarters while handing the ball over four times as the Indianapolis Colts posted 17 points in the first half to win 20-3 Saturday night at Lucas Oil Stadium. The game was tied up at three apiece until Peyton Manning hit Austin Collie for a 10 yard completion and TD with two minutes remaining in the second quarter. Manning was able to make reservations for six again before heading into the locker room; this time with Reggie Wayne in the final seconds to tack on the extra insurance.
“There’s no question how the guys used the off week,” said Manning. “We kind of called it preparation week. I thought we had good preparation coming into this game, thought we came out sharp and kind of set the tempo from the get-go.” The Colts will now take on the underdog New York Jets in the 2010 AFC Championship game. They last hosted title match three years ago when they went on to win the Super Bowl in Miami (the same site for this year’s main event).
The 2009-2010 Indianapolis Colts are ready for their first playoff test against the Baltimore Ravens this Saturday at Lucas Oil Stadium as part of the AFC Divisional round. Coach Jim Caldwell and crew will be able to see if their exit strategy was well worth it following their 14-0 campaign to start. “The ultimate goal is to get to the Super Bowl and win,” said DE Raheem Brock. “16-0 sounds great, but I don’t really care what the record is because no one remembers that. Unless, of course, you’re 16-0.”
Although the Ravens were successful last week against the former 3X Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots, they certainly realize what’s left to accomplish in order for them to advance to the Super Bowl. “We got the two best quarterbacks in the game back to back,” said linebacker Terrell Suggs. “We definitely have to bring our ‘A’ game.”
The Colts have shown better offensively this season, averaging 26 points per game to Baltimore’s 24.4. The Ravens defense held up better in 2009, allowing 40 less yards per game. Colts vs. Ravens tickets are now available!
Last Monday Marvin Harrison made it clear to the Colts organization that he refuses to take a pay cut, which ultimately resulted in his release. The only agreement they could come to was for Harrison to become a free agent. The Colts found his requests too expensive as he is now 36 years old and coming off one of the least productive seasons in his career.
Harrison is 2nd in the NFL?s all time receptions list with 1,102. He and Colts long time Quarter Back Peyton Manning is arguably the best combo to play the game. Together they have more completions, yardage, and touchdowns than any other combination in NFL history.
Indianapolis fans will be disappointed knowing Harrison is one of the most popular and successful Colts to play in the last decade. According to speculations he may look to play back where he grew up in Philadelphia alongside former college teammate Donovan McNabb.
