Colts Power Rankings: Indy makes huge jump entering Week 12
The Indianapolis Colts make significant leaps in the latest rounds of Power Rankings.
The Indianapolis Colts absolutely dominated last week, not only on the field but in the headlines following all the action. The Colts’ 41-15 victory over the Buffalo Bills was a performance that no one saw coming, so there was a lot of commentary around the 6-5 team heading into Week 12.
The majority of that talk was about Jonathan Taylor, how he was completely unstoppable against the league’s best defense, and whether he is the leading MVP candidate. Taylor and the Colts must take this momentum and keep building.
As special as this week has been, Indianapolis is only 6-5 with another huge test ahead of ’em. With all eyes on the Circle City, Indianapolis must prove that last week wasn’t a fluke. The way they played on Sunday puts them with the best in the league, but now they have to make it a habit.
Where the Colts rank across expert Power Rankings
Entering last week, Indianapolis was viewed as a middle-of-the-road team and many of the Power Ranking sites weren’t quite sure what to make of them. After their dominant victory, many believe the Colts are ready to run with the top teams in the NFL. They enter Week 12 with an average Power Ranking of 11.
ESPN has Indianapolis at 10, making a six-spot leap from last week’s rankings. Their level of dominance over the Bills has them rounding out the 10 best teams in the NFL.
The experts on the official NFL site have the Colts at 12 entering Week 12. This is only three spots higher than last week’s rankings, but they feel Indianapolis is one of the “most dangerous teams” right now.

Colts’ Super Bowl odds entering Week 12
The huge win on Sunday not only improved Indianapolis’ ranking, but it improved their Super Bowl odds. According to WynnBET, the Colts enter Week 12 with +3000 odds to win the Super Bowl. That is 12th best in the league, two spots better than they were last week.
One thing that remains the same is that Indianapolis will be facing the team with the best odds to win the Super Bowl for the second-straight week. Last week, the Bills had the best odds to win, but after being demolished by Indy, their chances dropped. Now the Buccaneers have the best shot with +550 odds.
The Colts will look to upset the Super Bowl favorite yet again.
