Good to see, let's just hope they play well vs. these "easy" opponents and not take them lightly.

For most teams, that sounds great. For Colts - maybe not so much. We seem to play better and pull through against tougher opponents when all odds are against them as opposed to "easier" opponents.

Dunno why, but our guys do better when coming back from being down than holding leads.

There is no reality to basing schedules off the previous year's teams.

In this case...Houston skews the numbers...
They wont be a 2-14 team again....most know they're better than that

Much like Denver was said to have an easy schedule in 2013 largely due to KC's 2-14 in 2012...
...but it was clear that 2013 KC was always going to be better than their previous year's record..
