Colts will play four primetime games in 2013

The Indianapolis Colts have announced their 2013 regular season schedule.

Along with their traditional matchups against AFC South Division opponents Houston, Jacksonville, and Tennessee, the Colts will also face the AFC and NFC West Divisions. Indianapolis will also host the Miami Dolphins while traveling to Cincinnati. In total, the Colts will face five playoff teams from the 2012 season, including Cincinnati, Denver, Houston, San Francisco, and Seattle.

Indianapolis will open the regular season at home for the first time since 2009 when the Oakland Raiders come to town on Sept. 8. The Colts are 5-7 against the Raiders overall, including a 1-4 record at home. Indianapolis has won the past three matchups, including its sole win at home against Oakland on Oct. 10, 2004. In the most recent game between the two teams, the Colts were victorious, 31-26, on Dec. 26, 2010.

The Colts will remain at home in Week 2 and host the Miami Dolphins for the second consecutive year on Sept. 15. Last season, Indianapolis beat Miami, 23-20, behind Andrew Luck’s NFL rookie single-game record 433 passing yards. Overall, the Colts have won the last four games between the two teams and are 25-44 against the Dolphins all-time, including a 14-21 mark at home.

Indianapolis will head to the West Coast for its first road game of the season to battle the San Francisco 49ers on Sept. 22. The Colts are 24-18 all-time against the 49ers and have won the previous two matchups. Most recently, the Colts defeated the 49ers by a score of 18-14 on Nov. 1, 2009. Reggie Wayne led both teams in receiving that day, hauling in 12 receptions for 147 yards and a touchdown.

The Colts will open their AFC South slate on the road against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sept. 29. Indianapolis owns a 16-8 series advantage over Jacksonville, having split the season series last year. In last year’s Thursday Night Football game in Jacksonville, the Colts won 27-10. In that game, Luck rushed for two touchdowns while Darius Butler recorded two interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown, to go along with a fumble recovery.
