So, one thing I will agree with is that the Colts did not have the toughest schedule out there, but they played what was given to them. This is typically one of the areas that people use when they bash the Colts, but here is another interesting thing about the Colts and who they played.
4 teams of interest Colts, Baltimore our playoff opponent, Denver the team our previous savior went to, Redskins this one should be pretty obvious. Against playoff teams, here are the records for these four teams:
While I know that teams play differently throughout the season, it still says something to me that the Colts are not looking bad in this category compared to these other teams. One last interesting thing is that all of these wins besides 2(both by Denver) came when the team was playing at home.
Over all the Colts may have not had the strongest strength or schedule, but against quality teams it was not as bad as many have made it out to seem.
