Colts vs. Lions open thread

The Colts' 2016 regular season is, finally, here.

The Colts host the Detroit Lions this afternoon at Lucas Oil Stadium in what figures to be a high-scoring game with plenty of offense. The game will mark the official return of Andrew Luck, who hasn't played in a regular season game since last November. The Colts' defense isn't as fortunate, however, as they will be without several key players - with Vontae Davis, Darius Butler, Clayton Geathers, and Henry Anderson all inactive.

It will be our first real chance to see the 2016 Colts in action, as in preseason things were pretty vanilla. It will be a tough test against the Lions, however, especially considering the injuries. Consider this your open thread to discuss the game, but first, here's some need-to-know information:
