Colts will play four primetime games in 2013


On Nov. 14, the Colts will play on NFL Network’s Thursday Night Football against the Tennessee Titans at LP Field. Indianapolis swept the season series last year and holds an overall 23-13 record against the Titans, including a 9-7 mark on the road. In last season’s game at Tennessee, Vick Ballard scored the game-winning touchdown in overtime, giving the team a 19-13 victory.

Indianapolis will remain on the road to take on the Arizona Cardinals on Nov. 24. The Colts won the last meeting, 31-10, at University of Phoenix Stadium. In that game, Wayne totaled seven receptions for 126 yards and a touchdown, while Antoine Bethea was a part of two takeaways as he recorded an interception and a fumble recovery. Overall, Indianapolis holds an 8-6 record against Arizona and is 2-2 on the road.

The Colts will conclude the season series with the Titans at home on Dec. 1. In last year’s meeting with Tennessee at home, the Colts won 27-23 behind two fourth-quarter field goals by Adam Vinatieri from 40 and 53 yards out. The Colts are 14-6 all-time at home against the Titans.

Indianapolis will then make a quick trip to Cincinnati the following week on Dec. 8. The Colts lead the all-time series by a 16-9 margin, including a 7-3 record on the road. In their last meeting, the Colts fell to the Bengals, 27-17, at Paul Brown Stadium on Oct. 16, 2011. Prior to that game, Indianapolis won seven consecutive matchups spanning from 1998 to 2010.

The Colts will wrap up the season series with the Texans at home on Dec. 15. Indianapolis remains undefeated at home (11-0) against Houston, having posted a 28-16 victory in last year’s season finale at Lucas Oil Stadium. In that game, three rookies scored for the Colts, including Ballard, Coby Fleener, and T.Y. Hilton.

Indianapolis will return to Arrowhead Stadium for the second straight year when it takes on Kansas City on Dec. 22. Last season, the Colts defeated the Chiefs 20-13 in a Week 16 playoff-clinching game. Luck threw for 205 yards, bringing his total to 4,183 for the year, which set a new NFL rookie record for most passing yards in a season.

The Colts’ 2013 regular season closes out at home against the Jaguars on Dec. 29. In last season’s home contest against Jacksonville, the Colts lost, 22-17, on a last-minute 80-yard touchdown completion from Blaine Gabbert to Cecil Shorts III. Overall, Indianapolis is 8-4 at home against Jacksonville.
