PFT on NBC Sports Network welcomes Dwight Freeney


The Colts and Patriots seem to play every year, but this will be the first time they’ve clashed since Andrew Luck hit the scene.

Erik Kuselias will ask Colts defensive end Dwight Freeney about that change when Freeney stops by Pro Football Talk on NBC Sports Network on Thursday. We’ll also find out how Freeney is enjoying life as a linebacker after playing defensive end for his entire professional career and hear how the team is feeling after winning six of their first nine games.

From there, the crew will be throwing things open to the entire league. That means Kuselias, Mike Florio, Shaun King and Pete Najarian will be talking about the Jets soap opera, some of this weekend’s biggest games and all the other biggest news from around the league on Thursday. We’ll also get a preview of Thursday night’s Bills-Dolphins matchup.

It’s a packed hour and it all gets going at 5 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network.

  1. The Pats and Colts do play each other every year because of the NFL expansion. Unit 2002 Colts were in the AFC East, part of the agreement or decision made after NFL’s expansion to 32 teams was to allow teams formerly in the same division to continue to play each other. I believe it was something to do with keeping old traditions/rivalries alive.

  2. I’m pretty sure the Colts and Patriots frequency of playing each other is only because they both typically finish at the top of their divisions. That’s the formula – its not at the whim of the schedule makers.

    Regardless, Freeney is always interesting and gets a ton of respect from Patriots coaches, players and fans alike, who all appreciate a hard nosed football player even when he’s on another team.
