    After a loss to the New Orleans Saints in the Super Bowl last February, and now losing to the Houston Texans where the Colts' defense looked awful, the Colts should be prepared for a disappointing year.

    Between weeks 6-14, the Colts have a very hard schedule.

    6: @ Redskins

    7: Bye

    8: Home vs. Texans

    9: @ Eagles

    10: Home vs. Bengals

    11: @ Patriots

    12: Home vs. Chargers

    13: Home vs. Cowboys

    I'm not saying the Colts' offense will be bad this year. But they are all getting older, especially Reggie Wayne. 

#2: Better Talent In The AFC

    With the Ravens, Jets, Patriots, and Chargers in the AFC, and the Cowboys, Packers, Saints, and 49ers in the NFC, it will be hard for any team to repeat.

#1: Houston Texans

    This is the best the Texans have been in their franchise history. They have proven they can beat the Colts and will do anything to beat them in the division.
