Will the Colts Win Another Game this Season?
The Colts have only picked up two wins through the first half of 2017. With the schedule getting tougher in the second half if the year, will they be able add another win this season?
Indianapolis is 2-6 through the years’ first eight games. Those two wins came against the Browns and 49ers who have combined for a grand total of zero wins on the year. Additionally, the Colts were only three points better than each of those teams, and they needed overtime to finish off the 49ers.
The Andrew Luck-less Colts have been competitive in a couple of other games, an overtime loss to the Cardinals and last week’s one-point loss to the Bengals, but it’s difficult to see many more wins on this year’s schedule:

Only the Texans and Broncos are worse than .500, but the Colts are two-touchdown underdogs in Houston this week and Denver’s defense presents a ton of matchup problems for Indianapolis.
The Colts won’t be favored to win any of these games, but the unpredictability of the NFL this season suggests that they might be able to pick off one of these teams if they don’t bring their A-game.

While the victories aren’t there, the Colts are continuing to bring maximum effort each and every week.
2-14 would obviously be a disastrous season and could be the end of the road for Chuck Pagano, but it could provide the reward of a high draft pick this spring.
