GAME RELEASE: Indianapolis Colts vs. Oakland Raiders

Posted Sep 3, 2013

Colts open 2013 regular season at home against Raiders.

The Indianapolis Colts will kickoff the 2013 regular season with a home game against the Oakland Raiders at 1 p.m. on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium.

The Colts concluded the preseason with a 2-2 record, defeating the New York Giants and Cleveland Browns in Weeks 2 and 3, respectively.

Players such as safety Delano Howell and outside linebacker Caesar Rayford made the most of their opportunities with their preseason production and each earned spots on the 53-man active roster. Howell led the team with 21 tackles (13 solo), including 11 in the opening game. Rayford tallied an NFL-high 5.0 sacks in the preseason, which included back-to-back multi-sack performances.

Despite injuries to several starters throughout training camp and the preseason, the team is looking to reach near full strength heading into Week 1. Tight ends Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener, running back Ahmad Bradshaw, left tackle Anthony Castonzo and guard Mike McGlynn are all expected back on the field for the season opener.

The Raiders finished their preseason schedule with a 1-3 record. Wide receiver Brice Butler led the team in receiving with 108 yards and a touchdown while running back Rashad Jennings paced the team on the ground with 31 rushing attempts for 137 yards.
