Perfect home record
Modicum of momentum
Still, Colts are dark horse.

 

Colt fans grit their teeth
Uneasy and unsettled,
they beg for tackles

 

Dolphins now dismissed,
Colts can face playoffs two ways:
With fire or fear.

 

Peyton is point guard
Best defense is good offense
Keep away from Chiefs

 

Like the leopard, Colts
Can't change their spots at will.
Weak link is still weak.

 

Despite twelve win year,
Season defined by one game
Wild Card epitaph

 

Liabilities
Colt defense and special teams
When will they step up?

 

Why even play game?
Pundits say Colts have no chance
Darkest before dawn.
