11. Indianapolis Colts
Maybe that Week 4 loss was a major wake-up call for the Indianapolis Colts after seeing how the team responded on Sunday during their impressive win on the road over the Kansas City Chiefs.
From a talent perspective, no one needs to explain just how difficult it is to defeat the Chiefs on the road in front of their own fans, and what made this win even more impressive for the Colts is how they limited Patrick Mahomes to just throwing one touchdown pass.
Taking things all the way back to last January during the playoffs, Indianapolis wanted nothing more in 2019 than a chance at redemption against Kansas City since it’s tough not to wonder how the rest of the postseason could have played out if the Colts had won.
And even though winning in the regular season isn’t nearly the same as the playoffs, this should be viewed as a huge win for the Colts, mainly because of how much it provide that Indianapolis is capable of competing with the best of teams.
As frustrating as it’s been at times to figure out what to make of this Indianapolis team, the most important factor is Sunday’s win helped them improve to 3-2 on the year to keep it close with the Houston Texans in the division standings.
