The Indianapolis Colts suffered a devastating loss in the hands of the undefeated New England Patriots in Week 6 of the regular NFL season. The same football game saw the return of the Indianapolis Colts' star quarterback Andrew Luck try once again his hand at serving New England Patriots' Tom Brady a taste of defeat. Unfortunately for the recently recovered quarterback, such was not the case as the Super Bowl champs trampled the Indy football squad and handed them a final score of 34 - 27. 

As the seventh week of the regular NFL season rolls in, the Indianapolis Colts are getting ready to face the New Orleans Saints. Eyeing the possibility of ending the two-game losing streak they have managed to bag in the past NFL games, the Indianapolis Colts will attempt to beat Drew Bees' football squad when the New Orleans Saints visit the Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday (October 25) at 1:00 pm ET.

Apart from a recently recovered Andrew Luck, the Indianapolis Colts will face the New Orleans Saints with a newly minted member of their 53-man roster. Former New England Patriots star Tony Carter will join Andrew Luck and Frank Gore in the football match on Sunday. In addition to the New England Patriots, the cornerback also played for the Denver Broncos and the Minnesota Vikings. Tony Carter had spent the past four NFL seasons with Peyton Manning and the rest of the Denver Broncos squad. The departure of Tony Carter was prepared for by the Indianapolis Colts by letting go of linebacker Amarlo Herrera and cornerback Shaun Prater.

The Indianapolis Colts also signed Matt Blanchard to the practice squad. The newly added quarterback will replace Alex Tanney, who was cut a few hours prior to the entry of Matt Blanchard. Before joining the practice squad of the Indianapolis Colts, Matt Blanchard had been with the Cleveland Browns earlier this NFL season.

The football match against the New Orleans Saints will be the second game Andrew Luck will play after suffering from a shoulder injury. The Indianapolis Colts quarterback missed the Week 4 match against the Jacksonville Jaguars as well as the Week 5 game against the Houston Texans. 

Andrew Luck, however, insisted on playing against the New England Patriots in Week 6 despite being included in the questionable category due to his shoulder damage. It is still a question on whether the Colts star quarterback will be capable of sustaining the same energy when the NFL team face the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.
