The Indianapolis Colts currently rank at the top of the AFC Wild Card standings. They're in the driver's seat if they want to be a part of the 2012 NFL playoffs. This wasn't supposed to happen in year one of a rebuilding effort.
The reason the Colts are in this unexpected situation is due to a number of factors. It starts at the top with owner Jim Irsay and trickles down through the front office, coaching staff and the players. They've bought in to what the organization is all about and are all in for a fight for the playoffs.
There's seven games left on the Colts schedule, and this is the blueprint for them in making a dream run to New Orleans.
