After an interesting 2010 season – lots of injuries, more losses than Colts fans are used to, several close wins and a team that just couldn’t finish at the end of the year – Colts fans are starting to look forward to the 2011 NFL season.
The NFL just released the 2011 schedule and the Colts have some great match-ups this year. Some of the most exciting games this year are sure to be the 9/25 home game against the AFC North champion Pittsburgh Steelers, the 10/23 away game against the New Orleans Saints which puts Peyton Manning back in his hometown for the first time since 2003. Then there’s a tough late-season road trip against the New England Patriots (12/4) and the Baltimore Ravens (12/11).
The Colts 2011 Schedule is below (All times are PM Eastern, and TV stations are for Central Indiana). We’ll keep this schedule updated throughout the season.
As with any year, the Colts’ main goal is to win it all, and since Indianapolis is hosting the big game this year, it could be the first time that a team has played in their own stadium for the Big Game! Click here for more information about Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis.
