Remembering the Regular Season: Great Memory #7 – Finally Beat the Colts
The Indianapolis Colts came to town in Week 14, but it certainly wasn’t the typical horseshoes we were used to seeing. Indy entered the game winless, at 0-12, as they had played the entire season without Peyton Manning. Many Ravens fans were having nightmares, remembering the 2007 season when B’More went to Miami and lost to a then 0-13 Dolphins squad.
This game was never in question though, as the Ravens finally put to rest a decade’s worth of frustrations, beating Indy for the first time since 2001.
It was a cathartic victory for all Ravens fans, young and old. The older generation who still remembers when the Colts were ours will always light up when a Baltimore team beats and Indianapolis one. The younger generation (the “get over it” crowd) was just glad to finally get a win after being beaten down by Manning year after year after year.
