The 2019 NFL season schedule is officially set, with each team knowing the road that they face if they want to contend for Super Bowl 54 in Miami. A closer look at the season schedule for the 2019 Indianapolis Colts squad.
Week 1: @ Los Angeles Chargers | Sept. 8, 4:05 p.m. ET on CBS
The Indianapolis Colts will begin their season on the west coast with a 4:05 p.m. ET kickoff time, facing the other AFC Wild Card of last season in the Los Angeles Chargers.
Los Angeles returns their core squad, with quarterback Philip Rivers leading the charge and two exciting new defensive challenges in rookie defensive tackle Jerry Tillery (Notre Dame) and safety Nasir Adderley (Delaware), among others.
Week 2: @ Tennessee Titans | Sept. 15, 1:00 p.m. ET on CBS
After a 9-7 campaign in 2018 that saw the team missing the playoffs, the Tennessee Titans will play host to the Colts in Week 2, the first of the team’s two matchups this season. The Titans return their core, with their most notable offseason acquisitions being a trade for former Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who will presumably play backup to Marcus Mariota, and the signing of defensive edge Cameron Wake, among others.
Week 3: vs. Atlanta Falcons | Sept. 22, 1:00 p.m. ET on CBS
Despite their home city playing host to the Super Bowl this past season, the Atlanta Falcons finished with a 7-9 record and missed the playoffs in a 2018 campaign that can only be described as “disappointing.”
The Colts will face Atlanta in their home opener in Week 3, facing a Falcons squad whose roster remained largely untouched in this past offseason.

Week 4: vs. Oakland Raiders | Sept. 29, 1:00 p.m. ET on CBS
One of the most talked about teams of the 2019 NFL offseason, the Oakland Raiders, new general manager Mike Mayock and head coach Jon Gruden have dedicated the team to a near complete roster turnover after a 4-12 season in 2018.
Their second-straight week at home, the Colts host the Raiders at Lucas Oil Stadium in Week 4, facing a Raiders team with dynamic new playmakers (both in free agency signings and the 2019 NFL Draft), including defensive edge Clelin Ferrell (Clemson), running back Josh Jacobs (Alabama) and safety Johnathan Abram (Mississippi State).

Week 5: @Kansas City Chiefs | Oct. 6, 8:20 p.m. ET on NBC
Arguably the matchup of the season for both Colts and Kansas City Chiefs fans alike, this divisional playoff rematch from 2018 will be a primetime affair, taking place on NBC’s Sunday Night Football in Week 5.
The Chiefs are coming off a season of incredible success and simultaneous turnover, with running back Kareem Hunt being released following legal troubles and wide receiver Tyreek Hill be placed on leave. Kansas City also sent defensive edge Dee Ford to San Francisco, to only turn around send multiple draft picks to the Seattle Seahawks for pass rusher Frank Clark, and signed safety Tyrann Mathieu.
