Colts Host Giants, Saints in 2014 Preseason

Posted Apr 9, 2014

With the 2014 preseason schedule announced today by the NFL, the Colts will face both New York teams and then host New Orleans on national television in the crucial third week of action. Indianapolis closes the preseason by visiting Cincinnati.



INDIANAPOLIS – Last year, the Colts played the New York Giants on national television in preseason. 

 

This year, the teams open the Colts’ preseason home slate on a date to be determined, then Indianapolis hosts New Orleans on national television on Saturday, August 23, the league’s critical third weekend of season premier action.

 

The Colts open preseason play on the road at the Jets, with the game day and time to be determined.  This marks only the second time the teams have battled in preseason.

 

Though the date and kickoff time are not set in week two against the Giants, New York will be making a return visit to Indianapolis for the first time since beating New England in Lucas Oil Stadium in Super Bowl XLVI.  In their only other venture to the site, the Colts bested New York, 38-14, in 2010.

 

With the NFL’s third week of preseason play typically finding front-liners appearing into the third quarter, Indianapolis and New Orleans meet for the second time since Super Bowl XLIV. 

 

The Saints, powered by Purdue’s Drew Brees, will be making a first-ever appearance in Lucas Oil Stadium.  The last visit by New Orleans was a 41-10 Colts win to open the 2007 regular-season.

 

The Colts close preseason action on Thursday, August 28 at Cincinnati.  This marks the 12th straight preseason the geographic rivals have closed preseason play.
