The Indianapolis Colts are one of the most refreshing teams to watch in the NFL at the moment, a young, versatile bunch of players who are capable of playing both a passing and a rushing game it is not beyond the realms of possibility that they could be a force in coming seasons, indeed this year they look like making the post season.
Many have said that they are overachieving under the leadership of Chuck Pagano, but in truth they have one of the most celebrated draft picks in recent years, Quarterback, Andrew Luck.
Luck’s start to life in the NFL has been full of ups and downs, never quite reaching the heights of his college career, but the hard work finally looks to be paying off and the pressure of filling the shoes of Colts legend Payton Manning looks to be fading as he takes the team by the scruff of the neck to lead them forward.
After looking out of the contest for the first half they rallied with two late score to move to a near unassailable 7-3 record, indeed it was the second such reverse in the last three weeks and the sixth time the Colts have overcome a double-digit score line since Luck was drafted in 2012.
Donald Brown ran for two touchdowns on the nights and Andrew Luck added another and the Indianapolis Colts rallied.
The rock-solid Adam Vinatieri kicked three field goals, including a 50-yarder, and there was a standout performance for Coby Fleener who had a career-high eight catches for 107 yards to help the Colts bounce back from a 38-8 loss to St. Louis last week.
The Colts are 3-0 in the AFC South, with all of those wins coming on the road so you would have to fancy them against their rivals at home over the next few weeks, if they do win those matches they could be sporting a decent 12-4 record which may see them wrestle a bye or home field advantage come the post season.
