The Colts dominated a rain-soaked game in Nashville Sunday night 33-17 as they clinched the 6-seed in the NFL Playoffs. The Colts clinched a playoffs spot for the first time since 2014. It has been a long road for the Colts who thought they would never get their franchise QB back after shoulder surgery and a 2-14 season.
hotteAndrew Luck finished 24-35 for 285 yards and 3 TDs. Marlon Mack led the rushing attack with 119 yards and 1 TD on 25 carries. The Colts started the season 1-5 and the outlook looked dim for the Colts before winning 9 of their last 10 games. The Colts enter the playoffs as one of the st teams and a team that most would want to avoid seeing. Rooke Defensive Player of the Year candidate Darius Leonard padded his resume with 8 tackles and an interception.
The Colts WildCard opponent is a familiar one with the division rival Houston Texans. The Colts play the Texans Saturday at 4:30 PM on ESPN. The Colts split the season series with the Texans including a controversial 4th down call by Coach Reich that started the Texans winning streak. The Colts won later on in the season at Houston and will be looking to repeat that this Saturday.
I believe this Colts team WILL go into Houston and come out with a victory and then head to Kansas City to take on the #1 seed. This Colts team is rolling and the defense is playing lights out as well. It’s a great time to be in Indianapolis!
