2019 Indianapolis Colts Schedule Preview: Weeks 6-10

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 6: Bye Week

An early week of relief for the Colts, with a bye in the first half of the season.


Week 7: vs. Houston Texans | Oct. 20, 1:00 p.m. ET on CBS

The defending AFC South champions in 2018 (11-5), the division rival Houston Texans head to Lucas Oil Stadium for the first of two matchups against the Colts in 2019, in what is also a rematch of the 2018 NFL Wild Card matchup.

A relatively quiet offseason for the Texans, aside from franchise-tagging defensive pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney and signing of safety Tashaun Gipson from Jacksonville, the Texans hope the continued health of quarterback Deshaun Watson and the return of wide receiver Will Fuller will help them take that next step.

Week 8: vs. Denver Broncos | Oct. 27, 4:25 p.m. ET on CBS

Touting a roster-in-progress with plenty of upheaval in the 2019 offseason, the Denver Broncos come to town for a second-straight Colts home game (and three of four in weeks 6-10).

After trading for quarterback Joe Flacco from the Baltimore Ravens, the Broncos cut 2018 QB Case Keenum and drafted rookie Drew Lock out of Missouri. Also on the offensive front, the Broncos drafted standout Iowa tight end Noah Fant, and return playmakers like Emmanuel Sanders and Phillip Lindsay in an offense that could give the Colts defense a test.

Week 9: @ Pittsburgh Steelers | Nov. 3, 1:00 p.m. ET on CBS

Gone are the days of facing running back Le’Veon Bell and wide receiver Antonio Brown when facing the Pittsburgh Steelers, both leaving or being traded this past offseason. Instead, a revitalized Steelers roster is what the Colts will see when traveling to Heinz Field in Week 9.

With Bell sitting out the entirety of the 2018 season, the Steelers workhorse running back turned standout was James Conner, the rookie from the University of Pittsburgh. Wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster is ready to become the #1 receive he spent most of the 2018 season showing he could be, and the Steelers, always a tough matchup for the Colts, will look to continue building around quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

 


Week 10: vs. Miami Dolphins | Nov. 10, 4:05 p.m. ET on CBS

Quite a contrast for the Miami Dolphins from the 2018 to 2019 seasons, as the Colts will face a new quarterback and a rookie head coach at home in Week 10.

After the Cardinals drafted quarterback Kyler Murray with the #1 overall pick, the Dolphins made the trade for sophomore QB Josh Rosen to pair with new head coach Brian Flores, formerly of the New England Patriots, as well as signing signature NFL journeyman Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Week 10 will also mark a special occasion for Indianapolis Colts fans, as former Super Bowl champion defensive pass rusher Dwight Freeney’s name will officially be inducted into the Lucas Oil Stadium ring of honor.

Future Super Bowl Schedules Announced

With the NFL owner meetings taking place this week, the annual unveiling of the site for future Super Bowl hosts was announced for Super Bowl LVII in 2023 and Super Bowl LVIII in 2024.

Another One for the Desert

Last hosted in 2015, the Super Bowl will return to University of Phoenix Stadium for its second go around in Glendale, Arizona. Super Bowl LVII in 2023 will be hosted at the home of the Arizona Cardinals for the third time in league history, twice in Glendale and once before in Tempe.
 

Back to New Orleans

The Super Bowl heads back to the Crescent City in 2024, where the Mercedes-Benz Superdome (previously the Louisiana Superdome) will host its eighth Super Bowl, the most of any venue in the country. Super Bowl LVIII will be New Orleans’ 11th overall Super Bowl, with three past Super Bowls being plated at Tulane Stadium in the 1970s.
 

Other Future Super Bowl Cities

Arizona and New Orleans are just the latest to join the Super Bowl-host cities, as the locations for the next four Super Bowls have already been announced in previous years. Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia, will host Super Bowl LIII in 2018, followed by Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida for Super Bowl LIV in 2019. In 2020, Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, will host Super Bowl LV, and Super Bowl LVI will be played at the brand new Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park in Inglewood, California.

2018 Super Bowl Countdown: Super Bowl XIV

As we continue on the Road to Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis, the Los Angeles Rams make their first appearance in the Super Bowl LII Countdown, facing off against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XIV.

January 20, 1980

Played at the gorgeous Rose Bowl in sunny Pasadena, California in front of nearly 104,000 fans, the Los Angeles Rams and Pittsburgh Steelers met for the first time in Super Bowl XIV. Pittsburgh would capture yet another Super Bowl title, defeating the Rams by a score of 31-19. This was the first time the NFL had a team that hailed from the same surrounding area as the Super Bowl host, with the Los Angeles Rams playing just 14 miles from the LA Memorial Coliseum.

The Steelers also made history in Super Bowl XIV by becoming the first team to capture four Super Bowl titles, doing so in just a six-year span. The game was close for the majority of Super Bowl XIV, with Steelers quarterback Terry Bradshaw connecting with wide receiver Lynn Swann for a 47-yard touchdown pass, highlighting the Steelers victory. Bradshaw would go on to win Super Bowl XIV MVP award honors, finishing the game with 309 yards and two touchdowns.

Pat Summerall and Tom Brookshier would once again handle the broadcast duties at the Super Bowl, broadcast on CBS in 1980. A 30-second commercial continued to rise in price, standing around $222,000 for Super Bowl XIV. The halftime show entertainment was provided by Up with People, presenting “A Salute to the Big Band Era.” Interesting enough, the Nielson Rating was 46.3 with an estimated 76.2 million viewers tuning into Super Bowl XIV.

2018 Super Bowl Countdown: Super Bowl XIII

Super Bowl XIII, played in lovely Miami, Florida, once again featured two of America’s favorite teams, both past and present. The Countdown to Super Bowl LII rolls on with the Dallas Cowboys (once again) facing off against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Super Bowl LII Countdown

January 21, 1979

Two of America’s most iconic teams would take part in the thirteenth installment of the Super Bowl, slowly becoming the most popular championship event in the world. The Pittsburgh Steelers, winners of the AFC, would go up against back-to-back NFC champion and the defending Super Bowl champion Dallas Cowboys at the famed Orange Bowl in Miami, Florida. However, Super Bowl XIII would prove to be less enjoyable than the previous years for Dallas, as the Steelers would come away with the 35-31 victory in front of nearly 80,000 fans.

Steelers quarterback Terry Bradshaw would be awarded the Super Bowl XIII MVP honors, completing 17 of his 30 passing attempts for 318 yards and four touchdowns, as the Steelers would never trail throughout the game. The final score of 35-31 was much closer than the game itself, as the Steelers actually led 35-17 with 19 seconds to go in the game. Super Bowl XIII would become infamously known as Black Sunday in Las Vegas, as many notable sportsbooks lost big on wagers throughout the game.

Cost of commercials during the Super Bowl continued to rise in 1979, this year’s cost of a 30-second spot rising to over $185,000 per spot, by far the most expensive to date for a Super Bowl.The announcers for Super Bowl XII were none other than Curt GowdyMerlin Olsen, and John Brodie.

2018 Super Bowl Countdown: Super Bowl XII

As we embark on Week 3 in the 2017 NFL season, we’re well on the way on the Road to Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis. Next up in our featured countdown; Super Bowl XII between the Dallas Cowboys and Denver Broncos.

Super Bowl LII Countdown

January 15, 1978

In Super Bowl XII, the Dallas Cowboys would come out victorious, after a 27-10 battle with the Denver Broncos. The game was played in front of nearly 76,000 fans at the Louisiana Super Dome in New Orlean, Louisiana.

The Cowboys put together a complete game, with their defense being the key to their Super Bowl XII victory. Dallas forced eight turnovers and only allowed eight pass completions for Denver throughout the entirety of the game. Wide receiver Butch Johnson provided plenty of highlight plays, most notably a 45-yard touchdown pass diving into the end zone. Two other stars of Super Bowl XII, defensive tackle Randy White and defensive end Harvey Martin, would go on to be named Super Bowl co-MVPs. This would be the first and only time (so far) that two players both were awarded Super Bowl MVP honors.

The cost of a 30 second television commercial during Super Bowl XII went up to $162,000, still paling in comparison to the Super Bowl LI’s rates. Pat Summerall would once again be the game announcer on CBS, hosting alongside analyst Tom Brookshier. At halftime, Super Bowl fans were treated to plenty of entertainment, including musicians Pete Fountain and Al Hirt.

2018 Super Bowl Countdown: Super Bowl X

With the 2017 NFL season finally underway, the Road to Super Bowl LII is officially open. As we continue our Super Bowl countdown, we head back to Super Bowl X between the Dallas Cowboys and Pittsburgh Steelers.

Super Bowl LII Countdown

January 18, 1976

Touting the title of “America’s Team,” the Dallas Cowboys would play Super Bowl X against the Pittsburgh Steelers in front of nearly 81,000 fans. The Steelers would come away victorious, capturing their second-straight Super Bowl victory, 21-17 over Dallas.

With this matchup featuring two of the country’s favorite NFL teams, the matchup was highly anticipated in the weeks leading up to the big game. Lynn Swann, wide receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers, managed to reel in four catches for a Super Bowl record 161 yards and one touchdown, receiving the first ever Super Bowl MVP awarded to a wide receiver.

The National Anthem before Super Bowl X was sung by Tom Sullivan in unison with “Up With People.” At halftime, fans were treated to an equally entertaining show by “Up With People,” who attributed the show to America’s Bicentennial. Pat Summerall and Tom Brookshier were the announcers for Super Bowl X on CBS, and brands could expect to pay around $110,000 for a 30-second commercial in 1976.

2018 Super Bowl Countdown: Super Bowl IX

After three consecutive years represented by the Miami Dolphins, the AFC would have a new participant in Super Bowl IX. The Countdown to Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis rolls through New Orleans, Louisiana with Super Bowl IX.

Super Bowl LII Countdown

January 12, 1975

Nearly 81,000 fans were in attendance for Super Bowl IX, played once again at Tulane Stadium in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Pittsburgh Steelers, AFC champions, would face off against the Minnesota Vikings, who were taking part in their second-straight Super Bowl appearance.

The Steelers would make sure to dominate Super Bowl IX, with the Minnesota Vikings’ only score coming as a result of a blocked punt. Pittsburgh would also be without some of their most talented players, including linebackers Andy Russell and Jack Lambert, both of whom sat out due to injuries. The Super Bowl IX MVP award was given to Steelers running back Franco Harris, who recorded over 150 yards and one touchdown on the ground.

Super Bowl IX halftime entertainment was provided by none other than Mercer Ellington and the Grambling State University band, a tribute to the great Duke Ellington. The game was broadcast on NBC and was covered by announcers Curt Gowdy, Al DeRogatis, Don Meredith and Charlie Jones.

2018 Super Bowl Countdown: Super Bowl VIII

Continuing their dominance in the league, the Miami Dolphins made another Super Bowl appearance in the 1973-74 NFL season, marking their third-straight appearance. The Countdown to Super Bowl LII rolls on, this time through Super Bowl LI host Houston, Texas.

Super Bowl LII Countdown

January 13, 1974

In their third-straight Super Bowl appearance, the dominant Miami Dolphins would go on to capture their second-straight Super Bowl title, a 24-7 victory over the Minnesota Vikings. Although not the undefeated season that was 1972, the Dolphins would become the second repeat Super Bowl champions in just eight total tries, matching the famed Green Bay Packers with two Lombardi trophies.

Super Bowl VIII was the first to not be hosted by either New Orleans, Miami or Los Angeles in the modern era. Instead, the game was played at Rice University’s football stadium in Houston, Texas, their first of what would become three hosted Super Bowls, most recently in 2017 at Super Bowl LI.

Larry Csonka, running back for the Miami Dolphins, would become the first running back in league history to be named Super Bowl MVP, rushing for 145 yards on 33 carries for the team.

Pat Summerall would once again handle the broadcasting duties for the Super Bowl, alongside Ray Scott and Bart Starr. The cost of a 30-second commercial rose nearly $15,000 in 1973, up to $103,000. At halftime, fans got a “taste of Texas” when the Westchester Wranglerettes performed alongside the University of Texas Longhorn Marching Band.

2018 Super Bowl Countdown: Super Bowl VII

In just the second year of their early dominance in the NFL, the Miami Dolphins managed to achieve something that still to this day has yet to be accomplished in the NFL. The Countdown to Super Bowl LII rolls on with 1973’s Super Bowl VII.

Super Bowl LII Countdown

January 14, 1973

Super Bowl VII was played between the Miami Dolphins and Washington Redskins in January of 1973, a game which saw the Dolphins capture the Lombardi Trophy in a 14-7 victory. Played in front of over 90,000 fans, the Super Bowl returned to the Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles, California, once again.

The Miami Dolphins were able to capture the NFL’s first (and to this day, only) perfect season, winning every game in the regular season, playoffs and ultimately, a Super Bowl.

After losing to the Dallas Cowboys in Super Bowl VI, the Dolphins would return the following year to capture their first ever Super Bowl victory. MVP of the game was awarded to safety Jake Scott of the Dolphins, who was just the second defensive player in NFL history to capture the award. Super Bowl VII was quite the defensive battle, to this date still being the lowest scoring game in Super Bowl history.

When the Super Bowl began airing on television, commercial air time was quite expensive, though it’s nothing compared to what it costs today. A 30-second spot on TV in 1973 was around $88,000. However, that’s chump change compared to what brands are paying in today’s day and age, well into the millions. The halftime show for Super Bowl VII consisted of another marching band act, this time Woody Herman and the University of Michigan marching band.
