Indianapolis Colts: 5 Takeaways from Week 15 Loss to Houston

Posted By Andy Konty On December 18, 2012 @ 1:11 am In Colts News | No Comments

NFL [1] schedules must be created by comic gremlins [2].  How else can you explain the New England Patriots [3], San Francisco 49ers [4], Houston Texans [5] and Green Bay Packers [6] enjoying a weaker 2012 strength of schedule [7] than last year’s 2-14 Colts?  Or why the Colts play the Texans twice in the last three weeks of the season?

The 2012 Indianapolis Colts [8] owe the scheduling gremlins a signed Andrew Luck jersey.

Going into last Sunday’s game, the Colts’ nine wins came against teams with a combined 48-76 (.387) win-loss record.  The Colts only quality wins came against Green Bay (10-4) and Minnesota [9] (8-6).  Playing two games against the top team in the AFC in the last three weeks of the season was a stroke of bad luck for a struggling franchise with a rookie quarterback.

At 9-4, and with a chance to win the AFC South, the Colts’ trip to Houston presented an opportunity to assess the team’s real progress in 2012. 

Although the Colts lost to the Texans 29-17, several characteristics of the resurgent Colts only grew more apparent.
