A Quick Look: Indianapolis Colts @ San Diego Chargers

Posted Oct 9, 2013

Intro: After a year absence from primetime football, the Colts (4-1) will return to Monday Night Football against the San Diego Chargers (2-3) in Week Six. The Colts are 6-4 all-time away from home against the Chargers.



INDIANAPOLIS – The Colts will make their second of three trips to the Pacific Time Zone in 2013 when they take on the San Diego Chargers on Monday night.

For the first time since 2011, the Colts will also be on Monday Night Football, playing a team that they have a ton of recent history with, especially in primetime contests.

San Diego has had more recent success against the Colts than perhaps any other team with five wins in their last six matchups, including two playoff games.

While the Chargers have undergone some significant turnover since those matchups, the quarterback-tight end duo of Philip Rivers and Antonio Gates remains.

Rivers and Gates are perennial Pro Bowlers and their starts to the 2013 season rival that of any year they’ve had in their careers.

The Chargers offense ranks fifth in the NFL and Rivers is second in the NFL completing 73.9 of his passes.

Gates has been a frequent target in 2013 with 32 catches and 438 receiving yards, numbers that are on pace to be career-highs for the 11-year veteran.

New head coach Mike McCoy comes over to the Chargers after being the Denver Broncos offensive coordinator and it appears as he has only improved the play of Rivers.

San Diego sits at 2-3 on the season, having their first three games of the season decided by a total of nine points.

Defensively, John Pagano, the brother of Chuck Pagano, coordinates the Chargers.

The unit has struggled in 2013, allowing at least 20 points in every game this season.

2013 Record:  2-3, tied for 3rd in the AFC West.          

Head Coach:  Mike McCoy, 1st season as Chargers head coach and 1st NFL season as head coach (2-3 overall regular season).

2013 NFL Rankings:  Offense – Overall, 5th (401.6); Rushing, 21st (90.4); Passing, 5th (311.2) Defense – Overall, 27th (406.0); Rushing, 24th (117.2); Passing, 27th (288.8).

2013 Leading Passer:  Philip Rivers (141-of-191 comp., 1,610 yards, 73.8 pct., 13 TDs, 5 INTs).

2013 Leading Rusher:  Ryan Mathews (67 carries, 234 yards, 0 TDs).

2013 Leading Receiver:  Antonio Gates (32 receptions, 438 yards, 2 TDs).

2013 Leading Sacker:  Jarret Johnson (4.0).

2013 Turnover Breakdown:  Minus 8 (tied for 28th in the NFL).

2013 NFL Draft Results:  Under new general manager Tom Telesco, the Chargers were active throughout the draft in selecting three guys that at times received first-round grades. Alabama offensive tackle D.J. Fluker was chosen with the No. 11 pick in the draft. In the second round, the Chargers made one of the more interesting picks of the 2013 draft in choosing Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o. Then in the third round, the Chargers found a playmaker for quarterback Philip Rivers by drafting wide receiver Keenan Allen out of California.

2012 Review:  The Charges jumped out to a 3-1 start in 2012 but lost seven of their next eight games and had an offseason overhaul with the coaching staff and management. After six seasons at the helm, head coach Norv Turner was fired as the Chargers failed to make the playoffs for the third straight season.

Last time in Playoffs:  2009 season. Lost to the New York Jets, 17-14, in the divisional round of the playoffs.

Last time in Super Bowl:  1994 season. Lost Super Bowl XXIX, 49-26, to the San Francisco 49ers.

Super Bowl Championships:  None.

2013 Pro Bowl Selections:  None.
