COLTS PRE-GAME REPORT
PRE-GAME CELEBRATION – Sunday’s game was the first in Lucas Oil Stadium since Super Bowl XLVI in February. Prior to the game, Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard spoke to the crowd from mid-field. Ballard directed the crowd’s attention to the stadium rafters as a banner commemorating the city, state and Super Bowl was dropped. The banner hangs among those earned by the Colts from previous post-seasons. The city hopes to attract the Super Bowl again in 2018.
