The Indianapolis Colts struggled to find their identity this season as the way they played shifted back and forth from week to week. The Colts have proven that they are fully capable of beating any team in the NFL but could also lose to any team in the league, as they demonstrated in the regular season.

The Colts defeated the Denver Broncos, San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks this season, all of which are the most popular Super Bowl picks. On the flip side, the Colts lost to several teams, including the Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins and St. Louis Rams, none of which made the playoffs.

Despite their bipolar reputation, the Colts finished 11-5 and faced off against the Kansas City Chiefs in the first round of the playoffs, a game that was one for the ages.

With around 13 minutes left in the third quarter, it looked as though the Colts' season was over. They were down 38-10, and according to ESPN, had a 0.9 percent chance of winning the game. However, Luck willed the Colts to go on a 35-6 run and win the game.
