for the first time since Week 6 of the 2015 season. It is fitting that it happens on the road against a division opponent with a playoff berth and possible division championship on the line. The Colts have been mired in mediocrity since they lost the AFC Championship game in Foxborough in January of 2015. A win today would setup the team to enter a road match-up against Houston with the best record it has owned since Week 7 of the 2014 season. A victory would push the Colts to 3-1 in the division. It would push their current win-streak to 6 games. It would officially eliminate Jacksonville from playoff contention. There are a whole lot of good things that result from a positive outcome today Nyheim Hines Color Rush Jersey , including what could be a tremendous boost for the team’s swagger and confidence heading down the stretch. The team’s destiny is squarely in its hands and it needs a big push to set itself up for the last four games of the season.Game Time1 pm ET Sunday December 2, 2018LocationTIAA Bank Field – Jacksonville, FLTV ChannelCBS — Tom McCarthy (Play-by-play) and Steve Beuerlein (Color)RadioWFNI (1070 The Fan) and WLHK (HANK FM) — Matt Taylor (play-by-play), Jim Sorgi (color) and Barry Krauss (sideline)Referee AssignmentAlex Kemp“Enemy” BlogBig Cat CountryTwitterFollow @StampedeBlue for the complete Colts coverage.FacebookLike Stampede Blue on Facebook!PodcastsApple Podcasts | Stitcher | Art 19 | SB Colts Cast YT Channel INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Adam Vinatieri will still be the NFL's oldest active player next season.The 46-year-old kicker and the Indianapolis Colts have agreed to a new deal, general manager Chris Ballard announced Friday on 1070 The Fan, the radio station that broadcasts the team's games. Terms of the deal were not immediately available.But it was hardly a surprise. The day after Indy's season ended with a divisional-round loss to Kansas City, Vinatieri said he would "probably" be back for his 24th season in the league. And if all goes as planned, the NFL's career scoring leader might still be adding to his record total of 2,600 a while longer. "There are no guarantees for any of us that there's a next day, a next year , anything. I've kind of always prepared myself thinking that way," Vinatieri said last month after noting he'd like to play 10 more seasons. "There are no guarantees, and when you get to my age, you're absolutely right, your days are numbered."The four-time Super Bowl champion has showed no signs of slowing down.He made 23 of 27 field goal attempts last season and finished with 113 points — extending his league record to 21 100-point seasons.But that's just part of Vinatieri's resume.In September, he broke Morten Andersen's league record for field goals made and needs 10 more to become the first player with 700 field goals. In October, he broke Andersen's NFL scoring record. In December, he became the fourth player in league history to participate in a game at age 46.His 32 career playoff games are second all-time, behind former teammate Tom Brady, and he's the only player to score 1 Jacoby Brissett Jersey ,000 points with two different franchises — Indy and New England.Yet somehow Vinatieri and his white beard seem like a perfect fit in this young locker room."He seems like he's the same age he was when I first came in here and I guess that's been eight years," left tackle Anthony Castonzo said earlier this month. "That's pretty impressive, eight years, going through your early 40s that you don't really seem any older. I'm always impressed with how he's able to hang out with the young guys and be one of the guys despite being old enough to be one of our dads."Andrew Luck added: "Vinny is the best. I love him."And there are more milestones ahead for Vinatieri if he stays healthy.His next game played will be No. 354, breaking a tie with Gary Anderson for second on the career list, and if he's still kicking after he turns 47 in late December, Vinatieri would join Andersen and George Blanda as the only 47-year-olds to play in a game.But Ballard saw another reason to bring back the league's oldest player for another season."Do I think he can still kick in this league and be a really good kicker? Absolutely I do," Ballard said Jan. 14 in his season-ending news conference. "He is as important a guy in that locker room as anyone. I don't know if I have been around a special teams player that has as much impact as Adam does in the locker room. From a positive standpoint, all of our young guys that come in get to see Adam Vinatieri work, rehab Reggie Wayne Color Rush Jersey , prepare his body every year, be a pro, handle the hard times, handle the good times. I mean all of that, what Adam brings, brings a lot of value to this team."
