Colts vs. Patriots: Takeaways from Indianapolis' Loss to New England
David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

It was a brutal loss in the end, as the Indianapolis Colts fell to the New England Patriots 43-22 on Saturday. 

The Colts, in typical fashion, fell behind big early and then attempted to claw their way back into the game but couldn't quite close the gap this time and collapsed down the stretch as New England slammed the door shut. The loss showcased the fatal flaws evident in the Colts all season but also highlighted the hope for the future in Indianapolis. 

All in all, it was a successful season for Indianapolis, which earned its first playoff win and the first division title of the Andrew Luck era. Yet there is room for improvement, which will be the focus of fans and analysts for the next seven months.
