COLTS PRE-GAME NOTES:
Linebacker Robert Mathis enters today with sacks in five straight games.
Reggie Wayne has receptions in 98 straight games. He leads active NFL receivers with 147 consecutive starts and 168 games played. Wayne's streak is second-longest in Colts history to Peyton Manning (208), and he joins only four other Colts with more than 100 consecutive starts (115, C-Ken Mendenhall; 104, DE-Fred Cook; 102, DB-Jason Belser; 101, OT-Tarik Glenn).
Wayne (877, 11,914) is 15th in NFL career receptions, and needs seven to catch Keenan McCardell for 14th. The next player after McCardell is Torry Holt (920, 13th). He is 20th in NFL reception yards. Next on the yardage list are: 12,061, Derrick Mason (19th); 12,083, Hines Ward (18th).
The Colts are 27-12 when Wayne tops 100 reception yards, 18-11 when he has at least eight receptions, 52-13 when he scores a touchdown.
Wayne has 117 receptions against Jacksonville and Houston, the most receptions any Colts player ever has had against a competing franchise.
Wayne (74) needs two touchdowns to move past Edgerrin James for third-most in Colts history (128, Marvin Harrison; 113, Lenny Moore).
Antoine Bethea has had 12 and 13 tackles in the first two games and now has 716 for his career. Bethea is one of seven Indianapolis Colts to top 700 career tackles (1,149 Jeff Herrod; 1,052, Duane Bickett; 785, Jason Belser; 754, Gary Brackett, 744, Eugene Daniel).
Kicker Adam Vinatieri has scored in the last 132 consecutive games. His 53-yard field goal with eight seconds left against Minnesota was the 24th game-winning kick of his career.
Since joining the Colts in 2006, Vinatieri's 78.6 percentage (33-of-42) from the 40-49-yard range betters his career percentage (73.0, 103-141), as does his 55.6 percentage (five-of-nine) from 50 yards (50.0, 13-of-26) and beyond.
Linebacker Jerrell Freeman has topped the club in tackles in the first two games. Freeman had 13 at Chicago and 18 vs. Minnesota, and he was involved in takeaways in both outings – scoring interception return at Chicago; forced fumble against Minnesota.
Andrew Luck looks to have a third straight game with a touchdown pass. He has produced 100-yard receivers in each of the first two games (135, Reggie Wayne at Chicago; 111, Donnie Avery vs. Minnesota), and he has hit three different players with scoring passes (1, Wayne, Avery, Dwayne Allen).
Jacksonville kicker Josh Scobee has four field goals from the 50-yard range against the Colts (53, 51, 50, 59), one shy of the best total in the category. Tennessee's Rob Bironas has five against the Colts (60, 54, 51, 50, 53), with the final three coming last year. Scobee's 53-yarder in the RCA Dome on October 24, 2004 with 38 seconds left won the game, 27-24. He hit a 51-yarder with four seconds left in Lucas Oil Stadium on September 21, 2008 to win the game, 23-21, and his 59-yarder at the gun in Jacksonville on October 3, 2010 propelled a 31-28 win, and it marked the third-longest game-ending field goal in NFL history.
The Colts are 15-7 all-time against Jacksonville, 13-7 since being paired in the AFC South. The first two meetings came with the Colts being in the AFC East. Indianapolis won at Jacksonville on December 10, 1995, 41-31, the Jaguars' inaugural season. Aaron Bailey returned the opening kickoff 95 yards for score, the last time the club opened a game in such fashion. The Colts took a 43-14 verdict over Jacksonville in the RCA Dome on September 25, 2000, on Monday Night Football.
The last two times the Colts have returned a kickoff for a touchdown Jacksonville has been the opponent (93t, Chad Simpson at Jaguars 12/17/09; 41t, Tyjuan Hagler vs. Jaguars 12/19/10).
Today's game marks the 81st straight sellout for the Colts, and the team has sold out 115 of the last 116 games. There never has been a game in Lucas Oil Stadium that was not sold out.
