The Indianapolis Colts were far and away the biggest disappointments of the 2022-23 NFL betting season. With Matt Ryan expected to be a major boon to the offense, the Colts entered the regular season favored to win the AFC South at the online sportsbook with a 10-game season wins total; one of 10 teams that had a double-digit win tally! Not only did the team fail to win the AFC South, but it failed to make the playoffs by coming nowhere close to surpassing its win total. The team couldn’t even win five games for crying out loud! Then there were the firings of coordinators up until Frank Reich was ultimately fired following the team’s 26-3 loss at New England. The Jeff Saturday regime picked up from there, and it didn’t go smoothly. One highlight included the Dallas Cowboys scoring 33 unanswered fourth quarter points to turn a competitive game into a romp. Will anyone forget about the Minnesota Vikings historic comeback the following week? The lowlights far outshone the highlights this season. There is however some talent on this roster – on both sides of the ball. Correct moves in the NFL Draft and free agency paired with inking a competent head coach and staff could find it right back in the mix sooner rather than later.

Indianapolis Colts 2022 Season Recap

Who would’ve ever thought that opening week tie in Houston would’ve been an outlier for what was to come? The Colts went into that game favored by 7-points and were lucky just to come out of the 20-20 end result with a tie. That was followed up with the eye-opening 24-0 shutout at the hands of the Jaguars in Jacksonville a week later. Maybe just maybe this team wasn’t nearly as good as prognosticators expected at the outset of the season! Then it goes out and stifles Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs to score the 20-17 outright win and cover in week 3. Unfortunately, that’s when all the good times ended. The following week, Jonathan Taylor would suffer a high ankle sprain in the late stages of the 24-17 home loss to the Tennessee Titans; another game they lost and failed to cover.

The Colts offense was a shell of its former self from that point forward with it unable to march out a consistent ground attack to allow for the passing game to excel. Though JT would return from injury in the rematch with Tennessee a few weeks later, the former rushing yards leader was never himself. He would then go on to reaggravate the injury in that historic meltdown against the Vikings in week 15. Those that selected JT with the No. 1 pick in their respective fantasy drafts were left only to cry in their beers. Due to JT missing half of the schedule, the Colts offense went on to rank out as one of the worst in the game by averaging just over 311 yards (No. 27) while only managing a pathetic 17.0 points per game (No. 31).

It was a crying shame too with the defense better than average. Though DeForest Buckner and co. gave up 25+ points per game, it wasn’t all their fault. It had everything to do with the offense being allergic to holding onto possession of the pigskin. No team in the league gave the ball away more than the 2022-23 Indianapolis Colts. It didn’t matter if it was Matt Ryan, Sam Ehlinger, or Nick Foles under center, the unit just found ways to cough up possession of the pigskin – a league-high 34 times to be exact! Stephon Gilmore proved to be the ringleader of a pass defense that only surrendered 209.9 yards per game (No. 11) even with the front line registering a below average 31.4 percent pressure rate (No. 22).

2023 Offseason

This franchise just hasn’t been the same ever since Andrew Luck shockingly decided to hang up his cleats heading into the 2019-20 season. Since then, the team has amassed just one playoff appearance through four tries and was bounced in the wild-card round. It hasn’t won the AFC South title since 2014! If that’s to change in the near future, the franchise must go out and find its quarterback of the future. As stated earlier, there are some nice pieces to the puzzle on both sides of the ball. The only thing missing is the straw to stir the drink. Due to dropping each of their final seven played games, the Colts will have the No. 4 pick in the upcoming NFL Draft. With the Chicago Bears owners of the top overall pick and seemingly set at the quarterback position, many a talking head seems to be of the belief Indy trades up to land the No. 1 overall pick – and with it Bryce Young of Alabama.

Despite their 2021 collapse, the Colts still carry enough credibility to make four prime time TV appearances with the potential for a couple more in the flex schedule weeks.

In week five, the Colts will play at the Denver Broncos in a Prime Video appearance on Thursday, October 6. The game features two traded superstar quarterbacks; Matt Ryan of the Colts and Russell Wilson of the Broncos.

Indianapolis will host the Pittsburgh Steelers in a week 12 ESPN Monday Night Football appearance on November 28. Pittsburgh fans are hoping the rookie first round pick Kenny Pickett will be the starting quarterback well before this game.

The very next week, Indianapolis will play at the Dallas Cowboys on NBC Sunday Night Football. December 4 is the date for that interconference matchup.

Monday Night Football gets the Colts again in week 16 as the Los Angeles Chargers will visit Indianapolis on December 26. This game is likely to have major AFC playoff implications.

In 1984 during the middle of the night, the Baltimore Colts snuck out of town with Mayflower moving vans to take up residence in Indianapolis, Indiana. For Baltimore fans, it was a personal tragedy. For residents of the Hoosier State, the Colts gave them a much-needed big league status.

The Baltimore Colts were one of the most successful franchises in NFL history. Led by the famed Johnny Unitas at quarterback, the Colts put the NFL on the map with their overtime win at the New York Giants in the 1958 championship game. The Colts also suffered the greatest upset loss in history. In Super Bowl III, the New York Jets defeated the Colts 16-7 as 18.5-point underdogs. Baltimore went on to win Super Bowl V two years later.

Since 1995 the Colts have been one of the most successful franchises in pro football. Indianapolis has missed the playoffs just nine times since then. Of course, much of that success was due to Peyton Manning, who led them to two Super Bowl appearances with one win. Indeed, Lucas Oil Stadium is the House that Peyton Built.
