The Indianapolis Colts announced via the team’s official website that they’ll be able to maintain the 12,500 fan limit at Lucas Oil Stadium for the upcoming Week 11 home game against the Green Bay Packers.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, NFL teams have either held no fans or an extremely limited capacity for their 2020 home games. The Colts have had a number of spectators for all of their games so far.
In Week 2 against the Minnesota Vikings, the Colts had 2,500 fans. A week later, the number of fans increased to 7,500. In Week 6 against the Cincinnati Bengals, the Colts were able to extend the number to 12,500.
The Colts also stated that they’ll have 12,500 fans for this Sunday’s Week 9 game against Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens. After the game against Green Bay, the Colts will have a trio of home contests left: Week 12 against the Tennessee Titans, Week 15 against the Houston Texans and Week 17 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Lucas Oil Stadium has been kind to the Colts this year. They are 3-0 at home, but the next three home games are tricky. The Ravens, Packers and Titans are all in a playoff spot right now.
The Colts are 5-2 and tied with the Titans for the lead in the AFC South. Tennessee has lost back to back games, allowing Indianapolis to quickly move into a first place tie.
Indianapolis last won the AFC South in the 2014 season, when Andrew Luck was the quarterback. They reached the AFC Championship Game that season, losing to the eventual Super Bowl champion New England Patriots.
Thanks to the stellar play of offseason free agent signing and quarterback Philip Rivers and a dominant defense led by Darius Leonard and DeForest Buckner, the Colts are poised to reach the postseason for the second time in three years. And they have all the pieces in place to contend for the Super Bowl.
