The Colts were in great shape heading into the bye. However, after being forced to watch blow-outs by New England and Jacksonville it is easy to get the feeling that the AFC elite has gained ground on the Colts in a matter of hours.
We’ll soon know where Indy stands in the conference. The next four weeks will help decide the Colts’ playoff seeding.
That’s correct. The Colts play three out of four on the road against teams who combine for a 17-6 record. The weak link, San Diego, is suddenly a team on a mission, led by the league’s MVP. 5-0 could quickly turn into 6-3 if the Colts don’t bring it next week in Jacksonville.
Finally, does anyone think it is a little strange that the Colts follow up a Monday night road game with ANOTHER road game against a team who is coming off a bye week? INSANE. I’m usually not a “They’re out to get us” guy, but I’m with Bill Polian on this one. The Schedule Makers are nuts.
Deshawn Zombie Comments: The Colts have exactly ONE team left on their schedule with a losing record. Welcome to the N F freakin L. Every week is tough. Come January, this team will be well tested and ready to play. It’s all going to be ok. . .
