In NFL preseason 2013 live stream online, televised and radio broadcast Saturday, the Indianapolis Colts is hosting the Cleveland Browns at Lucas Oil Stadium in week 3 of the NFL preseason on August 24 at 7:00 PM EST in Lucas Oil Stadium, Indianapolis, Indiana.
The Colts and Browns have matched up numerous times in league play and four times in the playoffs but today’s game will be the eighth time in preseason since 1953, the first since 1994, according to Colts official website.
According to NFL.com, Cleveland Browns’ team leaders in passing are Brandon Weeden, rushing Trent Richardson and Montario Hardesty, receiving Josh Gordon, Greg Little, Benjamin Watson, and Trend Richardson. Indiana Colts’ team leaders in passing are Andrew Luck, rushing Vick Ballard and Donald Brown, receiving Reggie Wayne, T.Y. Hilton, Donnie Avery, and Dwayne Allen.
In the offensive comparison, Cleveland Browns average 314.2 total yards per game, which is less than Colt’ 362.4 yards. For the passing yards per game, Browns average 214.7, while Colts average 258. The rush yards per game for both teams are close, where the former has 99.6 and the latter with 104.4. Looking at just the overall offensive stats for both teams, Colts have the upper hand in today’s matchup.
“Whether it’s the preseason or the regular season, you want to be in every one of them and you want to win,” veteran linebacker D’Qwell Jackson told Clevelandbrowns.com. “It’s a business trip. The first two weeks were a pretty good outing on our part. We’ve got to continue to get better. We’re going down there to beat a good football team, and put what we’ve learned from practice onto the playing field. Hopefully, we come out on top.”
Coach Rob Chudzinski added, “I’m excited about getting a chance to play Indianapolis this week, a playoff team from last year that went 11-5 in the regular season. It will give us a chance to play a road game, which we haven’t done yet this preseason, go through that process of doing that, as well as playing in a dome, which also brings some unique challenges.”
Preseason game stats do not count towards the regular season, and players, including all-stars, have suffered injuries that ended their season. Last week, Miami’s Dustin Keller ended his season through an injury. However, players, coaches, and veterans consider the preseason as preparation for them to get their bodies and minds in a rhythm for the regular season.
“It is a necessary evil,” says Russ Salzberg, the veteran Ch. 5/9 sportscaster and host of the Giants’ postgame TV show, the New York Daily News reports. “Coaches need preseason games to assess younger talent. At the same time they are holding their breath. It’s every coach’s nightmare to lose anyone to injury, let alone lose a key player in the preseason.”
