Coming off a bye week, the Indianapolis Colts are unlikely to see much change in their power rankings. But they will learn a lot about themselves the next five weeks, playing opponents who currently own a combined 18-6 record. And the next game, against the Detroit Lions (3-3), is the "easy" matchup of that group.
The Colts and Arizona Cardinals are the only teams without a tight end on the active roster that was drafted at some point, but Indy is taking it to the extreme. It has four tight ends on the active roster and two more on the practice squad. All entered the NFL as undrafted rookies.
As Indianapolis Colts defensive line coach Brian Baker puts it, 15 sacks represent a great season. But a player who hits that number likely rushed opposing quarterbacks 400 times. There are few walks of life where that ratio would be considered an unqualified positive.
