Week 12 - Colts vs. Buccaneers

It's way too early to decide that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are going to be an early favorite in the Caleb Williams sweepstakes, but let's be serious. There are two real contenders for the No. 1 overall pick and thats Tampa and Arizona.

The Colts are coming off a long break and get to ease back in with a game against a team that is likely tanking for the No. 1 pick. Baker Mayfield is not a scary threat and the Colts take advantage of it.

Colts win (6-5)
Previous prediction: Colts win (6-5)

Week 13 - Colts at Titans

The Colts just haven't done so well against Tennessee in recent years and as much as the organization needs that train to stop, it just doesn't yet. The Titans get off to an early lead and the Colts can't seem to catch back up on the road.

Taylor has another decent performance that just can't top it off for the win. The angry runner is still looking for that contract extension, but this week proves that he is willing to take a beating to earn his money.

The Colts organization realizes what they have and begin negotiating an extension.

Colts lose (6-6)
Previous prediction: Colts lose (6-6)

Week 14 - Colts at Bengals

After taking a beating on the road in Tennessee, the Colts have to travel down I-74 to play against a Super Bowl contender and it's going to be brutal.

At this point, the Bengals can count their losses on two or three fingers and are looking to lock up a first-round bye within the next couple of weeks. The Bengals annialiate the Colts while their down and give them zero chances to score. The Bengals blank the Colts and win big.

Colts lose (6-7)
Previous prediction: Colts lose (6-7)

Week 15 - Colts vs. Steelers

After two tough losses, the Pittsburgh Steelers come to town and Mike Tomlin is looking to keep his streak of never finishing below .500, which just so happens to be in jeopardy at this point.

Tomlin seems to have Indy’s number and find ways to get it done when it matters the most, which is what they do here. Anthony Richardson doesn't appear to have a great game, turning the ball over a few times.

The Steelers pull out a close one and get the win and improve to being over .500 while the Colts continue to slide.

Colts lose (6-8)
