The Indianapolis Colts have just 18 days until the kickoff of the regular season. While not officially saying it, this team has been built for the express purpose of winning a Super Bowl, and anything less will undoubtedly be a huge disappointment.

The Colts finished the 2014 season with another 11-5 record and were once again dropped from the playoffs by the New England Patriots, albeit this time in the AFC Championship game. The Colts managed to dominate inferior opponents last season, but were beaten repeatedly by the elite quarterbacks and offenses in the league.

Heading into 2015, the Colts have the second easiest schedule on paper. Their opponents had a combined record of 106-149-1 in 2014. This is mostly due to the AFC South (featuring two of the worst teams in the NFL) and the NFC South (which didn’t feature a team with a .500 record).

Today, we look at the first quarter of the Colts’ schedule. The team opens at the Buffalo Bills, faces the New York Jets at home, the Tennessee Titans on the road, and is home again for the Jacksonville Jaguars. All four team’s have one flaw in common: quarterback. And while all four games won’t be a cakewalk, the Colts should find themselves off to a fast start in 2015.
