Watch out everyone. The NFL has scheduled an intriguing game for Thursday Night Football. No, for real this time. The two teams have winning records and are fighting for first place in their division and everything. Seriously, we were starting to question the NFL's commitment to having games on Thursday's with some big barn burners like Dolphins/Jaguars or Broncos/Jets.
In Week 6, with no fault to the league, we didn't even have a Thursday night game due to an abundance of positive COVID-19 tests. So enough ragging on these matchups. We're happy again that sports are even happening. Especially this Thursday night matchup between the Indianapolis Colts and the Tennessee Titans.
The Colts are only a game behind the Titans after Tennessee has struggled the last three weeks. Before their Week 7 matchup against the undefeated Steelers, the Titans were undefeated also. They missed a field goal that would have sent the game into OT. Instead they lost and brought their moping ways to Cincinnati where they lost to a terrible Bengals team the very next week. They did turn it around last week putting on a defensive clinic against the Chicago Bears who perennially always seem to be wanting more at quarterback.
The Colts are still struggling to find an identity of their own. They have a good record but could stand to mesh further under QB Philip Rivers. To be honest, he hasn't changed much from his Chargers days. He more often than not makes his team's competitive but is still inconsistent and turning over the ball too often. Which is one of the biggest reasons there is not a lighting bolt on the side of his helmet anymore.
He is ranking toward the bottom third in most significant categories including 10 TDs (Tied-23rd) 7 INTs (Tied 22nd) and 62.2 QBR (20th). Also this team has lost to the Jaguars and Bengals who are a combined 3-12. Two-thirds of their wins are against the Colts. Three-thirds of Cincinnati and Jacksonville's wins are against the Colts and Titans. (In case you were in need of a weird and meaningless stat).
The Colts arguably played their toughest game last week against the stingy Baltimore defense. Their defense was in the thick of it and the Colts were winning 10-7 late in the third quarter. That changed quick when Rivers threw a pick and the Ravens never looked back winning 24-10. It didn't help that the Colts fumbled the ball that led to a game-tying touchdown in the first quarter. Indianapolis will have to tighten up their grip on the football to take control of the AFC South from the Titans.

Another sneaky good game we have going this week is between the Dolphins and Chargers. Yes those Dolphins we were bashing on earlier and yes those Chargers who are 2-6 and can't seem to close out any games. Yes LA (still trying not to say San Diego) lost to the Broncos two weeks ago when they were up 24-3 and don't get us started with their loss against the Raiders last week. The Chargers scored a go ahead touchdown on a third and goal but on further review the call was reversed. On fourth down they couldn't convert and lost the game. They are due for a better break.
The reason you should be watching this game though is because of the quarterbacks. Tua Tagovailoa and Justin Herbert will be facing off against each other for the first time at any level. These two were perennial Heisman candidates in college and are already taking the league by storm. Tagovailoa has won his first two games in the league and really came to form as the Dolphins put up 34 in a come from behind victory against the Arizona Cardinals. Herbert doesn't have the record to show for it but he should be considered the leading candidate for offensive rookie of the year. You're looking at the future of the NFL in this matchup. We're just getting an early preview on Sunday.
