Indy is the team of the future in my opinion in the AFC. In fact we 12s saw just how good the Colts could be when the Seahawks went to the house Peyton built in the early stretch of the season. With Andrew Luck at the helm there’s very little that shouldn’t be expected of this team moving forward.

The loss to Kansas City during Wild Card weekend was an absolute fluke, one that probably won’t happen again in the 2015 Playoffs. But it did show the youth of this team as they continue to figure it out. I still don’t think they are ready to take that next step in 2014/2015, but they are the closest team to dethroning our next two teams on our list by a wide margin.

It’s too bad the Seahawks and Colts don’t meet this upcoming season, because last year’s game was a treat. The only way we could see a rematch would be in the Super Bowl.
