5 best moments of Colts’ season before bye week
Best Colts moment so far: Blowout victory in Buffalo
The best moment of the season thus far is obviously the huge Week 11 win over the Buffalo Bills. This game had everything an Indy fan could ask for, and fans likely had as much fun watching as the players did playing.
Indianapolis entered the game 5-5 and were considerable underdogs. The Bills were playing some of the best football in the NFL at the time, and if Indy had a chance to win, many thought it would be in a close game.
What unfolded was exactly the opposite. The Colts dominated wire-to-wire and won 41-15. It was easily the best outing for every Indianapolis unit and that’s reflected in the score.
This is the game that catapulted Jonathan Taylor into MVP conversations. Taylor was already a good back, but his combined 300+ yards and five touchdowns in this game forced mainstream media to give him the love that he long deserved.
The defense and special teams also forced another four turnovers in this game, recovering one fumble and catching three interceptions. It was just an all-around great day of Colts football.
The production of the offense and defense was a display of what this year’s Indianapolis team can be when at its best. That is the form the team needs to be in when they return from the bye so that they can create moments that are even greater than these five.
