Indianapolis Colts Football: Winners and Losers from Colts' Loss vs. Bengals

The Colts and their fans are entering into uncharted territory after Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.  The Colts are now 0-6, and seemingly destined for a losing season, something no fan has seen in the last decade. While the Colts season is far from over, their playoff hopes are virtually zero, making the rest of this season seem to not matter.

On Sunday, the Colts saw many things to keep their spirits up, including the development of some players into taking on larger roles on the team. While the Bengals have statistically the number one defense in the NFL, the Colts managed to have a relatively decent game statistically posting 273 yards of total offense, most of which coming through the air.

What Sunday's game solidified was the fact that the Colts have an issue with depth, something that they will need to address in the off season through their health and wellness staff and the draft. The Detroit Lions have been a fantastic image this season of how building depth can impact a game, sending 7 defensive lineman and rotating them while all of them stay productive.

Looking ahead, the Colts schedule doesn't get too much prettier than it was the past two weeks, however here are a few winners and losers from Sunday's game going forward.
