Watch NFL Monday Night Football Live Streaming Philadelphia Eagles vs Indianapolis Colts Live Online match will be kick off at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana, Monday 15 September 2014 online, Time 20:30 ET and its broadcast NFL Network Online.
Most people probably expected the Philadelphia Eagles to come away with a 34-17 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 1.
But the way it turned out is not how anyone could have scripted.
To sum it up, the Eagles went down early, came back, pulled away late but lost two offensive line starters in the process. With the rest of the NFC East losing, Philly is in sole possession of first place within the division.
There are some injuries, specifically on the offensive line, but head coach Chip Kelly still has an elite group of playmakers who can cause trouble for the Indianapolis Colts on Monday Night Football. Nick Foles is coming off a Pro Bowl campaign in which he threw 27 touchdowns to just two interceptions, and he got the first-half jitters out of the way last week.
All-Pro running back LeSean McCoy is arguably the best in the business, and there’s an emerging mismatch nightmare in second-year tight end Zach Ertz. If the Eagles defense from this point forward can emulate the unit that shut down the Jaguars in the second half last week, then that’s good news for Philadelphia.
Defensive coordinator Billy Davis continues to be one of the best in the league at disguising his blitzes and schemes, and he has an underrated three-man front with which to work.
Like every matchup involving Andrew Luck, the game won’t be over until there is no time left on the clock. After all, Luck is a master of the fourth-quarter comeback, and he nearly pulled off an all-timer last week against Peyton Manning and the defending AFC champion Denver Broncos.
Both teams fell behind by double digits in their Week 1 game. Only one team was able to fight its way back to win the game. The other fought back but was stopped on fourth down in the fourth quarter.
The Philadelphia Eagles spotted the Jacksonville Jaguars a 17-0 lead before coming back and winning 34-17. The Indianapolis Colts trailed the Denver Broncos 24-0 before coming back and eventually losing 31-24.
The Colts and Eagles meet Monday night at Lucas Oil Stadium in a battle between one team that is struggling to get a consistent pass rush, Indianapolis, and another team with offensive line problems, Philadelphia.
