Outside of Indianapolis, not many people think the Colts can be very good the rest of the season. But a win on Sunday might turn some heads around the country.
The Colts are currently 4-5. They have dug themselves out of a hole that they put themselves in early on, winning three straight games. If they were to win a fourth straight on Sunday, that would turn some heads across the league and maybe they would start to get some attention.
Winning on Sunday would bring the Colts to 5-5 and potentially only a game back in the division. They would be beating a Tennessee team that just turned heads of their own after waxing New England. The Colts would get some recognition that they could be dangerous.
But of course, the team doesn’t need all of that attention. The Colts could care less what outsiders think of them. They know what they are capable of and winning games on their own will get them more recognition. But winning games will get them to their ultimate goal of making the playoffs.
Winning the game would give the Colts extra momentum as well. They would have won a lot of games in a row. They can put themselves in great position with a win. That will make the game tomorrow even more hotly contested.
Both teams need a win badly. Don’t expect Tennessee to just roll over and die. Both teams will give it their all. But if the Colts can win the game, expect the rest of the league to take notice.
