NFL: 7:00 PM EST August 18, 2013 TV: n/a
On Sunday, August 18, 2013, the Indianapolis Colts will head into Giant Stadium to take on the New York Giants. The colts are coming off an unbelievably surprising season, in which they were simply hoping to get rookie, Andrew Luck, some experience. Luck ended up throwing for 4,374 yards and 23 touchdowns. The Colts ended up being outlasted for the division title by the Houston Texans, but they proved they were a forced to be reckoned with.
Andrew Luck displayed exceptional poise for a rookie, which seemed to be the norm for last year’s rookie and 2nd year quarterbacks. Between Ballard and Brown, the Colts were able to muster up a decent running game.
The New York Giants, are still attempting to get back to the championship form they displayed a couple of years ago. The defensive line, which is vital to the success of the team, has been unhealthy and underproductive. They have also had some key injuries in the secondary, but this season they look to be healthy.
On the offensive side, they are looking to get more out of their running game. With Brandon Jacobs gone last year, they believed Bradshaw would have a breakout season, but it just didn’t happen. Now Giants have got rid of Bradshaw and installed young 2nd year RB David Wilson as starter, if NYG are to win in 2013 Wilson will have to improve the Giants running game.
