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.
Here are five reasons why the Peyton Manning and the Colts will not win the Super Bowl this year after week 1.
Quick name the last team to lose the Super Bowl and get back there the next year.
The Bills 20 years ago.
Between weeks 6-14, the Colts have a very hard schedule.
6: @ Redskins
8: Home vs. Texans
9: @ Eagles
10: Home vs. Bengals
11: @ Patriots
12: Home vs. Chargers
13: Home vs. Cowboys
14: @ Titans
I'm not saying the Colts' offense will be bad this year. But they are all getting older, especially Reggie Wayne.
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.
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.
