The Indianapolis Colts 2010 schedule doesn’t present an easy start to the year. The Indianapolis Colts 2010 schedule opens against the Houston Texans down in Texas on Sunday, September 12, and it could be a really tough game against an up-and-coming Texans team. These Indianapolis Colts are the defending AFC Champions, and came up just short against the New Orleans Saints in the last Super Bowl. Peyton Manning is back, and looks to improve upon his 4,500 yard – 33 touchdown performance from the 2009 regular season. Reggie Wayne and Dallas Clark are both back as well, having turned in 100 catches, more than1,100 receiving yards, and 10 touchdowns each in 2009.
This is a Colts team that turned in a 14-2 record during 2009, but could very well have gone undefeated if a few things had gone differently. Many are predicting that the Colts could get back to the Super Bowl this year, and they definitely have the tools to do exactly that. Posting the best record in the NFL last year means that they have the toughest schedule this year, and they have quite a few good teams in the mix. There are also some terrible teams in Philadelphia, Oakland, and Kansas City that could help them pad the win totals later in the season. They need to take care of business in week 1 though, because falling to Houston would just give that team more energy to try and make a run at the 2010 AFC South title.
The first game for the Indianapolis Colts will be played on Sunday, September 12 in Houston, and it has a start time of 1 p.m. EST on CBS for many viewers.
