I also think it's misleading to think beating Houston without Watson, the jets, and the jags means the colts are an above average team. At this point they have nearly half a season worth of games of losing to other above average teams.
I think the main point is the argument can be made the colts very often do not beat above average teams.
Although arguing what a playoff team means would be interesting.
I wish the colts whole season was just the jags, jets, and Houston. Well Houston without Watson.
