Indianapolis Colts: 5 Takeaways from Week 15 Loss to Houston

NFL  schedules must be created by comic gremlins . How else can you explain the New England Patriots , San Francisco 49ers , Houston Texans  and Green Bay Packers  enjoying a weaker 2012 strength of schedule  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  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  (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.
