Before anyone dismisses the 7-4 Colts from playoff and Super Bowl contention, take a look at their schedule down the stretch.
Indianapolis plays at Cleveland, returns home for Cincinnati and Detroit, plays at Jacksonville and then hosts Tennessee to close out the season. At worst, Indianapolis should win at least three of those games, with a legitimate chance to win all of them.
Clearly the Colts schedule is set up to allow them to roll into the playoffs with some momentum and name a team that would want to get quarterback Peyton Manning in the wild-card round.
The question no longer is whether Indianapolis is making the playoffs. The question is how far it is going to be advancing in them.
