There is a logjam at the bottom of the AFC playoff picture. The Colts are in that logjam right now. But if they come out of it on top, they could be dangerous.
The Colts are in an interesting spot right now. They are just behind the Ravens for the last wild-card spot. They have a lot of work to do if they want to claim that spot. In order to do that, they have to keep wining games. But if they get in, they could be very dangerous.
Most 6 seeds don’t do much damage in the playoffs. But if the Colts could sneak into the playoffs, they could be a hard team to beat. They have an explosive offense and a defense that has been much improved this season. They would be hard to stop the way that they are playing right now.
The offense has been inconsistent at times this season. Andrew Luck has had games in which he has struggled to move the ball. But he has also had games where he has moved it at will and the offense has exploded with points. That is dangerous for a playoff team matchup.
The defense has been the most consistent part of this team. They have kept the team in games when the offense had issues. They have done a good job of creating pressure as of late, and would cause problems for any team in the playoffs.
But all of this only matters if the team can actually make the playoffs. They have a long road ahead of them if they want to get there. They need to win the rest of their games if they want a chance at that. Because if they do, they could make some noise.
