What Indianapolis has done this season has been amazing. The team was awful last season, and it seemed like no matter who they drafted it would be that way for awhile.
Under Andrew Luck's leadership and playing through Chuck Pagano's illness, the Colts have racked up seven wins and are in prime position to be in the postseason.
Here's what scares me about Indy—two of their losses came against Jacksonville (at home) and they were pummeled against the Jets. There are flaws on this team that, for some reason, come up against some of the bottom-feeders of the league.
Their remaining schedule isn't easy. Two games against Houston are still coming, and playing in Detroit is never easy. They will enter Week 16 with an 8-6 record with two games left—in Kansas City and home against a Houston team that likely will have locked up home-field advantage.
They'll win Week 17. However, it is my belief that in an effort to play some kind of role in the season, the Chiefs will knock off the Colts in Week 16, opening the door for other teams to step up.
A 9-7 season will be extremely impressive from this team, but it won't be enough.
