The Colts Will Sneak into the Playoffs
A year after being the worst team in the NFL, the Colts will return to the playoffs, led by rookie quarterback Andrew Luck and wide receiver Reggie Wayne, who's having a career year.
Wayne, who decided to stay with the team in the offseason, has 54 receptions for 757 yards already. Aside from the game against the Jets, Wayne and the Colts have been good, beating Green Bay and Minnesota while also securing a crucial road win against division rival Tennessee.
The problem is going to be finding ways to win outside of Lucas Oil Stadium. The Colts are 1-2 on the road and have 5 more games to go, including games at New England, Houston and Detroit. The Colts can easily win five more games, get to nine wins and sneak into the playoffs. If they beat Miami and Tennessee at home, Jacksonville and Kansas City on the road and win one of the games against either Buffalo, Detroit or Houston, the Colts can be looking at a playoff berth.
Yes it'll be hard, but there isn't much competition in the AFC. The Dolphins look like the next best team, and the Jets can always make a run in the second half, but right now, it looks like the Colts will be in the playoffs.
