The start of the NFL season is officially here with the Buffalo Bills traveling to Los Angeles to take on the reigning Super Bowl Champion Rams tonight at 8:20pm.
However, the Indianapolis Colts still have to wait just under 72 hours until they kickoff their season in Houston.
Various sportsbooks have the Colts between 7.5 and 8.5 point favorites, which is the largest spread in any week one game. Remember last year when the Colts were a 15.5 point favorite when heading to Jacksonville? YIKES and I apologize for bringing that memory back into your head. On the bright side, this is a new season with another new quarterback, defensive coordinator, and a high level of optimism around the team for the first time in a while.
The guy who will have the play-by-play action for the Colts Radio Network in Matt Taylor joined the Dan Dakich Show on Thursday to share his thoughts on the Colts opponent, the health of multiple players, and other topics like:
- Will Shaq Leonard play on a pitch count?
- What kind of atmosphere will there be in Houston?
- How much better should the Texans be this year?
