Indianapolis – Last week on his show JMV said that going 1-1 vs the Bills and Buccaneers would be a success in terms of how the team looks and their postseason chances heading down the stretch. The Colts thrashed the Bills in Buffalo, something that surprised Colts fans nationwide and now JMV has decided to change his tune. He’s known for stamping games “must win” early in the season, even in Week 1 if necessary, so listeners wanted to know if JMV thought the Colts needed to win on Sunday vs the defending Super Bowl Champs.
JMV offered his thoughts on the upcoming game:
“I stand firmly in this statement. I’m going to be incredibly disappointed if this Colts team does not come out and play off what they did to Buffalo on the road in Buffalo. There was just way too much to go off that game and lose it immediately. It’s not going to be easy but at the same time you have the opportunity to feel so good if you come out of this stretch 2-0. Now all the sudden everyone is talking about Jonathan Taylor and all that MVP talk goes away real quick without a team win on Sunday. This time of year when you play like that you have to sustain and prove that you belong at the top of the AFC hierarchy.”
The Bucs are coming off a dominant win vs the Giants on Monday Night Football but a short week and a home game for the Colts in Lucas Oil Stadium should give them plenty of confidence that they can improve to 7-5 on the season and in a great position to make the playoffs.
