The Indianapolis Colts have five crucial games that they must win in order to prove that they are on the path to being serious league contenders.
The Colts are coming off of an awful 2011 season with a brand new team, as well as new management.
I wouldn’t say the Colts are starting from scratch, but they're pretty close. The team will be going into the regular season with a rookie quarterback, a rookie head coach and no Pierre Garcon. This should make things interesting.
Of course, for any team in the NFL, the attitude should be that every game is a “must-win game.”
But because the Colts are rebuilding and testing out a newly structured team, there are five specific games that they will have to win.
