Indianapolis Colts Coaches and players comment on their upcoming game against the New England Patriots on Thursday Night Football.

On the Patriots...

"This is a very well-coached team, very disciplined, very good technically, good fundamentals and technique."

- Colts Head Coach Frank Reich

"We know we are going to have to go in and play very, very well to even be able to hang with them and do our thing."

- Colts Kicker Adam Vinatieri

"It means a lot to actually be in this rivalry game. This is my first time so I know the magnitude of it. It is big and I know the crowd is going to be crazy so I am excited and it is on Thursday night."

- Colts Wide Reciever Chester Rogers

"It's the next game and for that we are excited. It's also Thursday night football on the road against a really, really good team and this locker room is excited for that."

- Colts Quarterback Andrew Luck

"Every game is important. Obviously, there is some rivalry here. We were just talking about history here of big games between these two teams. So, they have been one of the best teams in the league for a long time. So naturally, if you want to be the best you want to beat the best but really for us, what we talk about every week - like many NFL teams - our goal every week is 1-0. It just so happens that it's the New England Patriots."

- Colts Head Coach Frank Reich

On Tom Brady...

"I've always enjoyed watching him. I mean, he has been doing it really, really well for a really long time. He is certainly in the pantheon of great quarterbacks. It's not so fun watching him when you're on the opposite sideline, but I certainly admire him."

- Colts Quarterback Andrew Luck

On Josh Gordon...

"He has an elite physical skillset. I mean, this guy's explosive, he's got length, he's got all the characteristics, all the physical attributes that you want in a number one receiver. That'll certainly be a challenge."

- Colts Head Coach Frank Reich
