St. Louis Rams @ Indianapolis Colts Preview, Game Time, and Channel Info


At 12:00 CT today the St. Louis Rams will square off against the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The game can be found on CBS on channel 707 for  DIRECTV holders or you can catch the game live on nfl.com audio pass. You can also get the game at a later time on nfl.com game rewind

The Colts come in as one of the best, if not the best, football team in the NFL. Chuck Pagano has really helped turn this football team around from their 1-15 2011 season with the help of sophomore quarterback Andrew Luck and a good defense.

The Rams on the other hand will come in at 3-6 and are looking to have a fighting chance to salvage their season despite the odds. The Rams have lost their past two games on the final drive with two incomplete passes to the end zone which is impressive considering they have been without their starting quarterback.

Players To Watch: Zac Stacy and Andrew Luck

Zac Stacy has been very impressive and has been exciting to watch ever since he was handed the reigns. Stacy has proved he can run against good defenses and will be up the challenge this Colts defense presents.

Andrew Luck is arguably the most impressive young quarterback in the NFL and could become one of the greatest quarterbacks we ever see. Luck can make all the throws and can make incredible things happen, he will definitely be a player to watch.

Matchup To Watch: Rams Defensive Line vs Colts Offensive Line

In order for the Rams to have a chance in this one, the Rams have to get pressure on Andrew Luck and they will have to stop the run. The Colts wide receiver corps is pretty thin, if a little pressure can force Andrew Luck into some mistakes, the Rams could come out with a win.

Last Meeting: Colts 42 Rams 6

Lets just say Peyton Manning had his way with the Rams throwing three touchdown passes and the Rams were pretty terrible back in 2009.

Prediction: Colts 28 Rams 19

The Rams will keep this one close throughout and within a score going into the 4th quarter, but Indianapolis pulls away late to get the win and the Rams fall to 3-7.
