Colts VIP Tailgate
With the beginning of the new football year, comes new opportunities for tailgating! The 2016 Colts VIP Tailgates promised to be better than ever, and Week 1 did not disappoint.
The Colts suffered a 39-35 defeat at the hand of the Detroit Lions on Sunday, in a game that saw yet another slow start for the offense. The Lions jumped out to a quick 21-3 lead, before a late first half drive that would send the teams into halftime at 21-10.
Quarterback Andrew Luck, who would lead the team on a 35-13 run that would give the team a 35-34 lead with 37 seconds left in the game, voiced his frustrations with the slow starts after the game.
“I’m tired of talking about slow starts, I’m tired of being a part of the slow starts, and I’m disappointed in myself for being a part of the slow starts,” Luck said to reporters following the game. Luck finished the game with 385 yards and four touchdowns.
"Tired of being a part of the slow starts."

The positives are that the offensive line looked much improved, the Colts didn’t turn over the ball and Andrew Luck looked sharp. The defense, although atrocious in the game, is marred by injuries in a game that made the situations even worse, seeing injuries to defensive backs Patrick Robinson and T.J. Green.
