It's the final weekend in November as the 2015 NFL season begins to wind down toward the playoffs, and the Indianapolis Colts (5-5) and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (5-5) will play a surprisingly important game this afternoon at Lucas Oil Stadium.
The "surprising" part comes from the fact that, before the season started, many would have thought the Colts would have a comfortable lead in the AFC South at this point while the Buccaneers wouldn't be in the playoff discussion, but instead the Colts are atop the division thanks only to a tiebreaker while the Buccaneers are fighting for a wild card spot (they're currently the seventh seed).
Because of that, this afternoon's game could be an entertaining one that both teams need to win, so it should be interesting. Here's your open thread for the game, but first, let's take a look at some of the need-to-know information:
