Colts @ Raiders

Recommended Posts



Including playoffs, the Raiders own a 9-7 all-time record over the Colts. Indianapolis has won four of the last five matchups but lost the most recent meeting, 33-25, in Week 16 of the 2016 season in Oakland. This is the first ever game between these teams where both entered with a losing record.

The Colts moved to 2-5 on the year with a 37-5 win over the Bills, the first game in NFL history to have that final score. Prior to the win - Indianapolis' largest in the last five seasons - the Colts had allowed 117 points in their previous three games, all losses.

The Raiders had a bye in Week 7 after falling in London to the Seahawks in Week 6, 27-3. Oakland traded Amari Cooper to the Cowboys on Monday for a first-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft and may lose Marshawn Lynch for the rest of the season after placing him on injured reserve with a groin injury.

Indianapolis has converted exactly half of its third-down attempts this season (51/102), tied with Atlanta for the best conversion rate in the NFL. Oakland has allowed opponents to convert at a 46.1-percent clip this year, the fourth highest rate in football, including a 61.5-percent rate (16/26) in its last two games.

Andrew Luck threw five touchdown passes in his first three games this season but has 15 in his last four. He threw his 150th career TD pass last week in his 77th career game, the third-fewest games needed to reach 150 career TD passes in league history behind only Dan Marino (62) and Aaron Rodgers (76).

Derek Carr passed for a season-low 142 yards and was sacked six times in Oakland's last game, the most times he has been sacked since Week 17 of 2015 (six at KC). He also failed to throw a touchdown pass for the second time this year after having at least one in all 15 games he played in 2017.
