After their Week 6 loss to the New York Jets, the Indianapolis Colts fell to 1-5 with the playoffs seeming well out of reach. 


My, oh my. How the times have changed. Indy went ahead and rattled off five straight wins, before eventually finishing the regular season at 10-6 -- also winning in the Wild Card round of the playoffs last week against the Houston Texans. 

Surprisingly, the Colts have reinvented themselves on the offensive line and nearly everywhere on defense. In fact, they were a Top-10 ranked unit on both offense and defense this season, and that's interesting because each of the last two Super Bowl winners had that same distinction. 


Much has been made of the competition the Colts have faced during their run of success, and that's a fair point, being that only two of their 10 wins came against playoff teams. 

With all that being said, Indy comes into Saturday's game having won 10 of their last 11 games. At the end of the day, you have to play whoever is on the schedule -- and the Colts have certainly done just that. The divisional-round matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs will be their toughest test yet.
