The Indianapolis Colts are unquestionably the city's top sports franchise and one of the best-run and most successful NFL organizations in the entire league. The Colts' winning tradition starts at the top, with Jim Irsay and trickles all the way to the bottom. Below are the latest Colts headlines.

Who’s Napping Now?

Indianapolis used to be called “Nap Town” for it’s sleepy demeanor. As recently as 25 years ago, downtown Indianapolis was shuttered up and locked down after the business crowd left at 5:00pm and weekends could be described as “ghost town.” Oh, how times have changed! No one can accuse Indianapolis of napping any more. Just […]

Colts Sign Former Cleveland Browns Linebacker D’Qwell Jackson

Colts general manager Ryan Grigson didn’t wait long to make a splash in free agency. The latest acquisition: Former Cleveland Browns inside linebacker D’Qwell Jackson.

Colts Mount Historic Comeback in Improbable 45-44 Win Over Chiefs

There they were, on the precipice of disaster, staring into the abyss. Down 38-10 with 27 minutes remaining in the second half, some Colts fans had already begun to leave, and who could blame them? The game was over. The Colts couldn’t possibly comeback from this one. But come back they did. Final score: 45-44 […]

Colts Finish Regular Season Strong as Playoffs Loom

The Indianapolis Colts took care of business Sunday versus the Jacksonville Jaguars. With the AFC’s 2nd seed still up for grabs at the time, there would be no resting starters, and no taking the foot off the gas. Though the scoreboard showed a final score of 30-10, the game was never even that close. The […]

Colts Beat Chiefs 23-7. Peaking at Right Time? Maybe.

Two short weeks ago, the Colts had the look of a one-and-done playoff team. Crushing losses versus St. Louis, Arizona and Cincinnati will do that. But after two very impressive performances, most recently a 23-7 hammering of the Kansas City Chiefs, they now have the look of a team that may be peaking at just […]

Colts Make It to Promised Land, Finally Reach End Zone in First Half

After 40 years in the desert, the Colts finally made it to the promised land. OK, it wasn’t QUITE 40 years, but it sure felt that way. That’s because the they did something on Sunday that had eluded them in their last 38 possessions: Score a touchdown in the first half of a game. The […]

Colts Clinch Division Crown with Titans Loss

Peyton Manning just can’t seem to help himself when it comes to getting the Colts into the playoffs, even while playing for the Broncos.

Colts Nearly Clinch Division with 22-14 Win Versus Titans

The end zone might as well have been a mirage. At least that’s how it must have seemed to the Indianapolis Colts, who were unable to reach it for a majority of the game. Playing at home versus the Tennessee Titans, not only could the Colts not reach the end zone to save their lives, […]

The Happy Gilmore Theory for Colts’ Early Struggles, Come-from-Behind Wins

The good news is, they came from behind late after falling behind early, beating the Tennessee Titans on the road 30-27. The bad news is, they came from behind late after falling behind early…again. Which begs the question, why does this keep happening? There are so many theories to why the Indianapolis Colts continue to […]

Colts Promote Da’Rick Rogers to Active Roster

The Indianapolis Colts are hoping someone, indeed anyone, will step up at the wide receiver position to fill the void of talent that was left when the team’s best receiver, Reggie Wayne, went down with a season-ending knee injury in the Colts’ victory over the Denver Broncos over 3 weeks ago. Might Da’Rick Rogers be […]

Next Man Up: Griff Whalen?

The “next man up” may be Griff Whalen. Whether out of necessity or by design, the Indianapolis Colts have promoted wide receiver Griff Whalen from practice squad to active roster. The second-year receiver played football with Andrew Luck at Stanford, while Pep Hamilton called the plays. In fact, he was one of quarterback Andrew Luck’s […]

Peyton’s Bittersweet Return Ends in 39-30 Loss to Colts

The most hyped game of the year did not end the way Peyton Manning would have preferred. The Indianapolis Colts handed the visiting Denver Broncos their first loss of the season, beating them 39-30 Sunday night at Lucas Oil Stadium. It was a bittersweet homecoming to be sure. That this is a city that still […]

Colts Trounce Jaguars in 37-3 Road Victory

The Indianapolis Colts more than made up for a sluggish start. After falling behind 3-0, they proceeded to trounce the Jaguars 37-3 on Sunday. But the numbers aren’t as good as they first appear. They’re better. You see, had the Colts held the Jags to just 205 yards of total offense that would have been […]

Colts Run Over ‘Niners, Win 27-7

There would be no biceps kissing for Colin Kaepernick on Sunday. That’s because the normally mobile and elusive quarterback who helped lead the 49ers to a Super Bowl last season was under constant duress by a stifling Colts defense. Despite playing without two ket starters, safety Laron Landry and linebacker Pat Angerer, the Colts’ defense […]

Colts Acquire RB Trent Richardson in Blockbuster Trade

“Next man up” is the guiding principle at the Colts complex. Problem is, the “next man” wasn’t on the roster when starting running back, Vic Ballard, went down with a season-ending ACL injury in a no-contact practice drill, at least not as far as the front office was concerned. That all changed Tuesday, when the […]

Colts Eke Out 21-17 Win, Raise Concerns

The good news is that they won. The bad news is that they looked just average in doing so against an opponent widely considered to be one of the worst teams in the league. But as Andrew Luck said, “A win is a win is a win.” The Colts eked out a 21-17 win following […]

Colts Dominate Browns, Defense Shows Improvement in 3rd Preseason Game

For the second week in a row, Jim Irsay has to be in a better Twitter mood. That’s because the Colts looked sharp in a 27-6 victory at Lucas Oil Stadium over the visiting Cleveland Browns. A Productive Offense In a quarterback-driven league, it all starts with the guy behind center. And the Colts have […]

T.Y. Hilton Provides Bright Spot in Colts’ Pre-Season Loss

The sun wasn’t the only thing shining on the field as the Colts hosted the Buffalo Bills on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium with the retractable roof open. Second-year receiver T.Y. Hilton lined up on the outside of a two-receiver set and then beat Bills cornerback Ron Brooks on a 45-yard Matt Hasselbeck pass. The […]

Colts Defensive Coordinator Manusky Pleased with Defensive Progress

All the reports coming out of Anderson University suggest that Indianapolis Colts defensive coordinator Greg Manusky has been quite pleased with the defense thus far. In contrast to last year, when they lacked the right personnel to be effective in a 3-4 defensive alignment, the Colts spent $140 million in free agency and then added […]

Colts’ 2013 Training Camp: What to Look For

Training camp definitely had a different fell last year. The Indianapolis Colts were coming off a disastrous 2-14 season, the Polians had just been fired, Peyton Manning was released along with several other high-profile veterans, a majority of the coaching staff was released and Andrew Luck became the new face of the franchise. They were […]
