1. The Colts are breaking new ground on Sunday. They played the Jacksonville Jaguars in London last week, but don’t have the usual BYE week to follow. Do you know why the Colts don’t have a bye this week? Any chance the Bears catch the Colts suffering from a little jet lag?
The Colts chose not to have a Bye Week after the trip because they (and most other teams) dislike the early Bye. They opted to have it in November when the schedule is a little rougher. The NFL apparently gives teams the option when they have to travel overseas and now the Colts are playing guinea pig for the league.
As for jet lag, it is certainly possible, but remember that NFL players don’t fly coach like most people and that make a big difference. I’m more concerned with how terrible this team has played the past four weeks than with jet lag though.
