COLTS TRAVEL TO LOS ANGELES TO FACE CHARGERS IN KICKOFF OPENER
The Indianapolis Colts will travel to Los Angeles to face the Chargers in the 2019 regular season opener. The game time is set for 4:05 p.m. ET on Sunday, Sept. 8, at ROKiT Field at Dignity Health Sports Park.
The contest will mark the 27th all-time regular season meeting between the teams, with the Chargers holding a 16-10 advantage. In their last matchup on Sept. 25, 2016, Indianapolis defeated the Chargers at Lucas Oil Stadium, 26-22.
The Colts finished the 2018 season with a 10-6 regular season record, including a 4-2 record in the AFC South Division. After a Wild Card Round win on the road versus the Houston Texans, the Colts concluded the season with an appearance in the AFC Divisional Round against the Kansas City Chiefs.
After starting the season with a 1-5 record, Indianapolis won nine of their final 10 regular season games to clinch the team’s first postseason berth since 2014. The Colts became just the third team in NFL history to start the season 1-5 and make it to the playoffs. Additionally, the Colts were the second team in NFL history to start a season 1-5 and win a playoff game.
Head Coach Frank Reich became just the third head coach in team history to win a playoff game in his first season at the helm. He was named the 2018 AFC Coach of the Year by the NFL 101 Awards.
During the 2019 offseason, Colts General Manager Chris Ballard focused on re-signing many players, most notably CB-Pierre Desir, S-Clayton Geathers, G-Mark Glowinski, DT-Margus Hunt, LS-Luke Rhodes, WR-Chester Rogers and K-Adam Vinatieri. Via veteran free agency, Indianapolis signed WR-Devin Funchess and DE-Justin Houston.
Ballard and his staff also put together a 10-man draft class that included seven defensive players and three offensive players. Speed and athleticism are two characteristics that emulate the Colts’ 2019 Draft class, which is spearheaded by the club’s three second-round picks in CB-Rock Ya-Sin, DE-Ben Banogu and WR-Parris Campbell.
