The Colts appear set for the future with Andrew Luck who has become one of the premier young quarterbacks in the league since being drafted first overall in the 2012 NFL Draft. Luck had some extremely big shoes to fill in Indy, taking over the vacant position left by all-time great Peyton Manning, but he has more than filled them as he literally quarterbacked his team to one of the biggest comebacks in NFL Playoff history last season against the Kansas City Chiefs, overcoming a 28 point second half deficit. By virtue of this, Luck has already solidified himself as one of the best in the NFL, breaking records with each opportunity and becoming a better football player in the process.
One major problem the Colts have to deal with for the upcoming season will be the controversial loss of DE Robert Mathis who has been suspended for a violation of the leagues PED policy. This is something Mathis has never discredited only stating that he was using the banned substance as a fertility booster to help impregnate his wife and give his ailing mother a grandchild before she passes. Mathis had a career high 19.5 sacks leading the league a season ago and his loss will be a strong blow to the Colts pass rush, especially in the Colts top game of the season against the New England Patriots.
Without Mathis, the Colts will have a much more difficult time putting pressure on Tom Brady in this game. If you’re looking to grab Colts tickets to see them face off against Brady, the average price is currently $232 per ticket but Colts fans can get-in to the game for as little as just $80. For the season, Colts tickets are averaging $159, one of the more reasonable home averages in the entire NFL. The cheapest game comes against the Jacksonville Jaguars, going for 23% less than their home average at a price of $122 for tickets to the Week 12 meeting.
Other notable games for the Colts this season are their November 30th meeting with the Washington Redskins which will be the first time Luck will face off against the player picked right behind him in the draft, Robert Griffin III. These two quarterbacks will forever be linked together and compared to one another long after their playing days are over. In this first ever meeting, tickets are currently averaging $181, 13% higher than the normal Colts game at Lucas Oil Stadium.
