Head coach Frank Reich enters his second season with the team. They saw major improvement offensively. They put up 26 points per game a 10 point improvement from 2018. They gained 381 yards per game nearly 100 more yards per game then 2017. Key was a healthy Andrew Luck and a defense that held opponents to 21 points and 344 yards per contest. Also, the run game produced 4.4 yards per attempt best in four seasons.

Andrew Luck played in all 16 regular season games after missing all of 2017. He did miss nine games in 2015. He is hampered by a calf injury in camp which Luck doesn’t believe is serious. Andrew Luck completed 67.3% of his throws last season with 39 touchdowns and 15 picks. He was sacked 18 times which was way below the 41 sacks he took in 2016. Indianapolis has one of the better backup quarterbacks in the league in Jacoby Brissett. Team would like to cut down in turnovers as they sat 22nd in the league. Colts were number one in the league on third down and fifth in the red zone.

Running back Marlon Mack looks like a steal as he was taken in the fourth round of the 2017 draft out of South Florida. He had a breakout second season rushing for 908 yards and an impressive 4.7 yards per carry plus 9 touchdowns. Backup Jordan Wilkins rushed for 5.6 yards per carry on 60 tries. Nyheim Hines out of the backfield caught 63 balls for 425 yards and two touchdowns.

The receiving corps is stacked with TY Hilton, Chester Rodgers then rookie Parris Campbell selected from Ohio St. Tight end Eric Ebron was second in receiving yards with 750 yards and 13 touchdowns.

To strengthen an improved defense the Colts selected seven defensive players with the first eight picks in the draft. Three secondary players were taken with their first six picks. After sitting near the bottom of key defensive categories in 2017 the team made a giant leap in 2018. They still have work to do in generating sacks in in pass defense. Also, Colts defense ranked 23rd in the league on third down. All their starters return on defense from a season ago which means the depth gets better from the draft.

The Indianapolis Colts face the AFC West and NFC South this year. As the second place team in the AFC South last year they face Pittsburgh from the AFC North and Miami from the AFC East. They have two sets of back to back road games. They open the season at the LA Chargers and Tennessee Titans. Then in early December play at Tampa Bay and the following week at New Orleans. They do draw the toughest AFC West teams on the road in the Chargers and Chiefs. Three of their final four games of the season are against the NFC South at Tampa Bay and New Orleans then host Carolina.
