12. Indianapolis Colts (18)
One week after suffering an embarrassing loss at home to the Miami Dolphins, the Indianapolis Colts deserve a ton of credit for bouncing back in a strong way by defeating the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 11.
With the Jaguars expressing plenty of excitement over the return of Nick Foles for the first time since Week 1, the last thing the Colts could afford was to see the former Super Bowl MVP shine in his first game back, and hand Indianapolis another loss.
Jacksonville certainly kept things close in the first half, but after watching Indianapolis put together a strong final two quarters to pull away with the win, this is another perfect example of how good this team can be.
What made this contest even more exciting for the Colts is thanks to some help from the Baltimore Ravens defeating the Houston Texans, Indianapolis received some extra help in the AFC South race as well.
Looking at how tight things are in the division, the Colts will take any help possible at this point, and Thursday’s meeting with the Texans just became even more interesting to keep an eye on since the winner will officially be in first place all alone in the AFC South.
