More NFL preseason 2013 live stream and TV football is on the way for Sunday, Aug. 18. The latest matchup will feature the Indianapolis Colts versus New York Giants in a battle of two potential playoff teams for the upcoming season. The game will be featured on television, NFL subscription live stream and audio coverage for fans around the nation.
On Aug. 18, Fansided.com reported that today's game will be played at MetLife Stadium, and will be televised, live streaming and on radio coverage as well. These two teams can both be considered contenders for playoff spots in the 2013-14 season, as the Colts were in the postseason last year, and the Giants barely missed it. However, Eli Manning and crew will be looking to return to the glory of their Super Bowl championship seasons, by getting back on track this year.
Heading into this game, a report via ESPN's NFL Nation indicates that the Colts will need to focus on several aspects of their game. One will be making sure Darrius Heyward-Bey gets more passes thrown his way by Andrew Luck. With regards to Luck, they note the team needs to work on trying to reduce his number of times sacked by opposing defenses. The Giants' D is a good measuring stick as they had five sacks in a preseason game against the Steelers just last weekend.
Former Giants' star Ahmad Bradshaw is now a member of the opposing Colts. In a recent talk with the Giants' beat writers, he talked about his new quarterback, Luck, saying, "He's a great guy, we're actually neighbors and I have a great relationship with him. He's just like Eli, man."
In 2012, Luck ranked seventh amongst QB's in terms of overall passing yards with 4,374, while Manning ranked at twelfth overall with 3,948. However, it was the former Super Bowl MVP who ranked higher in touchdown passes thrown, as Eli was ninth with 26, while Luck ranked fourteenth with 23. Not too far off for the young superstar QB who is filling the shoes of another Manning.
Game time for the Colts vs. Giants matchup is scheduled for 7 p.m. EST on Sunday night. It's the only NFL preseason game on the schedule for Sunday. Fans can watch TV coverage on FOX, or live streaming coverage with the NFL Preseason Live subscription service. Additionally, there's radio coverage on Sirius XM Radio.
