NFL Pro Football 2017 Indianapolis Colts Regular Season Win Odds Preview

Share |

The 2016 Indianapolis Colts finished with a record of 8-8 and failed to make the playoffs for the second straight season. They finished a disappointing 4-4 at home and went 4-4 on the road. Andrew Luck put up decent numbers despite a lack of adequate protection from his offensive line. He returns after undergoing surgery on his shoulder. Indianapolis had the 30th ranked defense in the league as they were poor in both against the run and pass. In the draft the team picked three defensive players with their first three picks. Their first two selections came in the secondary with Malik Hooker a safety out of Ohio St and cornerback Quincy Wilson out of Florida. Six of their first seven opponents on their 2017 schedule failed to make the playoffs.

Andrew Luck started 15 of his 16 games in 2016. He completed 63.5% of his throws for 4240 yards with 31 touchdowns and 13 picks. The team put up 26 points per game which was eighth in the league. Indy had the fifth rated passing attack which on the surface is good enough to win the division and go deep into the playoffs. A poor defense prevented Indy from a successful 2016 campaign. They gave up 262 yards passing last year which was 27th in the league. Colts rush defense was 26th as opponents ran for 120 yards on them. Heavy emphasis is placed on creating turnovers during training camp. T.Y. Hilton is the leading target for the Colts but they have failed to support him with a household name player alongside of him. Frank Gore enters his 13th year in the league and was the leading rusher for Indianapolis last year with 1025 yards. Head coach Chuck Pagano returns for his fifth year with the team. It has been a stressful past two years for Pagano as rumors swirled about his job security. Pagano survived all of that and with an improved defense could win the division in 2017.
