Colts Playoff Chances
Is an 11-win team really going to be left out of the playoffs? It’s possible.
The Colts do not control their own destiny. They have to win, but then they’ll be scoreboard watching.
Indianapolis needs a loss or tie from Baltimore, Miami or Cleveland, in addition to beating Jacksonville. If Baltimore beats Cincinnati, Miami beats Buffalo and Cleveland beats Pittsburgh, Indianapolis is out.
Colts Odds vs. Jaguars
James Robinson is out for the Jaguars and Mike Glennon remains in at quarterback in the final game of the pre-Trevor Lawrence Era in Jacksonville.
As of Wednesday, 61% of bets were on the Colts but more than 90% of dollars were on the Jaguars according to our NFL PRO Report.
How the Colts Got Here
Philip Rivers was the big free-agent addition to replace Jacoby Brissett a year after Andrew Luck’s surprise retirement. With 10 wins, the move paid off even with Rivers having his typical Rivers moments. He’s thrown for more than 4,000 yards with 23 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
The Colts did well to not suffer any back-to-back losses and have notable wins over the Titans and Packers.
But if the Colts miss the playoffs, they’ll look at two giant missed opportunities: The Jaguars have one win this season, and it came against the Colts in Week 1. Then there’s Week 16, when the Colts took a 21-7 lead over the Steelers at half only to lose 28-24.
