Indianapolis now sits 2-2 and if the playoffs started today would be in. I know that sounds crazy to talk about that in Week 5, but it's a far cry from where they were at last year. Take this stat for what it's worth as well. Taking out Houston who is far better than Indianapolis right now, the combined record for their opponents is 14-34. They have matchup coming up with a terrible New York Jets team then come home two of their next three games against bad Cleveland Browns and Miami Dolphins teams.
The other game in the next four is a road divisional game against a pretty bad Tennessee Titans team. It's not too far out to think the Colts could win all four of those games and be 6-2 heading into their rematch with a bad Jacksonville Jaguars team.
The Jags came should have been won in Lucas Oil Stadium and should be an easy win down there in November. If they end up 7-2 and winning six in a row that's a playoff team this year, folks. If they play the way they did against Green Bay, and there's no reason they can't, they will win all five of these upcoming games.
Indianapolis needed a win in the Green Bay game to have outside hopes and an emotional win like that could very well propel them to that point.
