Falcons-Colts Series History

After a week off, I'm back with the next installment of the 2011 Falcons opponents series history. This week, the Colts.

This is one ugly series, with the Colts leading 13-1, going back to 1966. Mind you in those days between 1966-1969, the Colts were a powerhouse in the NFL, while the Falcons were the whipping boys for some teams. Tough to beat guys on the same team as Unitas, Berry, Mackey, Curtis, Don Shula, etc.

The Falcons managed to be competitive in five of those seven games. The low point, in my opinion, came in 1986, when a winless Colts team came in to the ATL, to win, 28-23, when the Falcons blew a lead late, and eventually got Dan Henning fired after the season. The high point, of course, came in 1998, when the Falcons recorded their first regular season victory, 28-21, at the ATL, after being down, 21-7, at the half.

As you can see, there is really nothing more to discuss, other than the fact that the Falcons are in Indy this week, a place where they have never won, playing a beat up, winless team.

The Falcons will win in Indy finally, 35-10, to go to 5-3 on the season. The Falcons will not take this one lightly, and should put these guys away early and often. I see a lot of Michael Turner in this game, and look for Roddy to have a big afternoon. And the defense should have their best game of the season to date. Look for the D to be all over it on Sunday.

Next week, I'll have a team that is near and dear to us, the Saints.
