After starting the season 1-3, and losing a heartbreaker against the Texans, many fans have given up on this team. Still, there are plenty of reasons to believe the Colts can turn it around and potentially make the playoffs.
Even though the Colts have lost yet another heartbreaking game, there is still a chance for this team to make it.
The Colts losses have come on horrible blunders, either by a coach or by a player. The loss against the Bengals would have probably being a win if Doyle had not fumbled, the Colts could have upset the Eagles if Luck could just finish a red zone drive, and the Colts could have beaten the Texans if the defense had not forgotten to play in OT. I fully stand behind the decision of going for it in the 4th against Houston, you play to win, not to tie.
With a 1-3 record, the Colts sit dead last in the AFC South, but things could change. This team can still turn things around.
The Colts will first have to start by upsetting the Patriots, which is no easy task. But hey, Frank Reich beat them in the Super Bowl right?
Then the Colts schedule gets extremely easy, except for a couple matchups against the Jaguars. If the Colts get on a roll they could very well finish 10-6 and get a Wild Card spot.
If the defense continues playing like it has at times, and Luck keeps on getting better from his injury, this team could shock everyone and just make it.
