Predictions for Remaining Games


Recommended Posts

After our win against the Packers, I feel pretty good about this team. What do you guys think we do down the stretch?

I have our remaining games as:

 

vs. Titans- W

@ Texans- W

@ Raiders- W

vs. Texans- W

@ Steelers- L

vs. Jags- W

I think we win end 12-4, 3rd seed. Beat wildcard opponent, lose to KC in divisional round. Thoughts?

I hope we can sweep the Titans this Sunday. That may get us the division title. Here’s my prediction...

 

vs. Titans- W

@ Texans- W

@ Raiders- L

vs. Texans- W

@ Steelers- L

vs. Jags- W

 

I have us finishing 11-5, winning the division, and hopefully challenging the Chiefs and Steelers. They are the only 2 teams I worry about facing.

That is certainly optimistic.   There are some tough ones on the schedule to pick.  I think we go 3-3.   The Titans, Raiders, Steelers and Texans games could all end up as losses.  They are all playing good football at the moment.  I think we may end up splitting with the Texans but I wouldn't be surprised if we won both games.

Titans‐ W

Texans- W

Raiders- L

Texans- L

Putting us at 11-5... I have the Titans doing this:

 

Colts - L

Browns - L

Jags - W

Lions - W

Packers - L

Texans - W

 

Putting them at 10-6.

 

AFC South Champs!  Playing CLE in the wildcard and redeeming our loss.  Going to Pitt and winning, going to Buffalo and losing.

Packers - L

Texans - W

 

Putting them at 11-5 losing to us via tie-breaker

 

 

 

Both the Colts and Titans finish 11-5 but we win via our 2-0 head to head tie-breaker. We will play Raiders in the #4 vs #5 matchup seeking revenge.

Colts would have to go 11. 5 to make the playoffs.  The browns and ravens have the tie breaker and have easy schedules .  No way the browns miss the playoffs . This titans game is must win game .  Colts win out every game except Steelers going 12 -4  getting hot at the right time running game starting to get going along with the passing game and defense and elite special teams .

Sadly one of them is Jacksonville haha

So true, lol.  Dream scenario - we have the division and our playoff spot wrapped up by that game.  So they let Jacoby play the 2nd Q and Eason play the second half.  

 

Hey, if we're allowed to have another thread about predictions, then I'm allowed to dream, right?

Absolutely.

 

This Tennessee game is huge. If we take care of them this week, we are in a really good spot.


I'm most intrigued by the personnel we are going to use.

 

We didn't use Hines as much as we did against them the first time, so now they have to respect Taylor more. 

Wilkins could come into play too down the stretch.

The great thing about Reich's offense is that the D can't concentrate on taking anyone away.  There are so many players they can feature.  I like featuring Taylor in the fourth Q when we try to wear down their D.

 

If the D that played in the second half last Sunday shows up, we should take them.

 

You're right, it's a huge game, basically for the division.  And we still have all tough games to go.  The Raiders are looking good, Steelers, obviously.  And Watson can win games by himself.

 

But, like we all said at the beginning of the season, we'll roll Jacksonville (lol!).

Eh we are a game ahead of the Browns as it sits. And they have to play TN next week.

If Rivers controls ball and limits bad turnovers like he has been, I think we win out.  
 

Our D is good enough to stop any of those offenses.  And Steelers are the only remaining team on the schedule with a solid D.  
 

So, if the offense is firing like they have the last 2 weeks, we can’t beat every team left on the schedule.

We win the rest of our AFCS games. Toss ups at LVR and at Pitt.

 

I think we're capable of beating both LVR and Pitt. 

 

LVR is playing really well and has the best/#1 SoS in the league so far.

 

Pitt is undefeated, but has literally the worst SoS in the league so far. 

 

We have the 3rd worst (30th) SoS.

I think all are winnable but out inconsistent play on offense, which will come back at some point.  Remember it's only been a couple weeks since Baltimore.  Added with the alarming number of penalties last week......its impossible to predict.  I've never dug the "on paper" argument, although I agree it's the best baseline.  Homer in me says run the table rational me says we go 3-3 and close out at 10-6.......

I think we lose to the steelers and raiders but win the rest, although division games are always harder to predict I find.

 

Every game remaining is a huge game though, this next game against the Titans and the Steelers game are the biggest of the lot IMO. If we can secure a win this weekend, we gain huge momentum and a win over the only other threat in the division. If we beat the Steelers we get revenge for numerous losses to them over the years and show we can beat one of the best in the NFL and who knows, maybe even win the SB :eek:... I feel crazy for even saying that.

Please don't. I'd hate to see a loyal fan homeless.

I don't think Pittsburgh stays undefeated, it wouldn't surprise me to see Baltimore knock them off tomorrow.

I'd love to see the Texans do well, but lose twice to us, and of course finish at least a game behind us.... 

 

Reason? ---- the better they do, the worse draft position (even though they gave their big picks away lol)... Also schedule impacts. Hope the Jags go on a winning streak too, until they play us..

    • Braden Smith allowed 1 QB hit and 0 sacks in 2020 with Rivers as QB.    
    • To the bolded, the point of having cap room and draft picks is to add good players. I don't think good roster management necessitates getting rid of good players when their contracts come up, not when you have the resources to keep them. Especially not if you're a good team, with contention in reach.    I think some overstate how "close" the Colts are, but I do think we're closer to being a contender than we are to being a team that should be stocking up picks to reshape the roster. And that's why 'forward-thinking Ballard' has been rolling forward tens of millions of cap every year.   As for the five players taking half the cap, that's not really where the Colts are, or will be. To keep it simple, once you factor in the pending cap increases -- the cap will be at $240m/year within the next two years, from the players' revenue split going up from 47% to 48.5%, from the TV contracts that are projected to nearly double to $10b/year, and from the 17th regular season game + 2 more playoff games -- having five $20m/year players is about 42% of your team's cap. And that's without going into contract structure and doing a year by year analysis of how your spending compares to the projected cap.   Teams with highly paid veteran QBs typically have about 40-50% of their cap tied into 6-8 players. Packers, Saints, Rams, Bucs, Chiefs, Steelers, Titans, etc. Pretty soon, you can add the Bills and Ravens to this list (and they're already close). The Cardinals are already there.    Right now, the Colts only have four guys above $10m/year (Wentz, Buckner, Kelly, Stewart). We have some room to add highly paid players, and still supplement the roster in free agency. Admittedly, my perspective is based on projected dramatic increases to the cap, but I would assume the Colts are factoring in those same increases. And because the Colts have some wiggle room right now, they might use a unique cap climate in 2021 to take advantage of their flexibility over the next 2-3 seasons, and structure contracts in a way that allows them to keep their young guys and still add a couple of veterans in free agency.  
    • I didn't think it that bad.   In hindsight it is.   Colts gave up the 22nd pick in the draft for the previous years #3 pick in the draft. In his rookie year, Richardson had good numbers - 950 yards rushing, 11 TD's, 51 receptions and 1 TD.  That was in 15 games with Weeden as the QB.  I thought with Luck as the QB his game would step up.      Was it a mistake - YES.   Was it the worst trade in Colts history - Not even close.   Let me remind you of this bad trade:   In search of a franchise QB, the Colts swung a deal with Atlanta for the top pick in the 1990 NFL Draft and used the pick on George, a homegrown product from Warren Central. The cost was steep. The Falcons received OT Chris Hinton, WR Andre Rison, a 1991 first round pick and a fifth round pick in 1990. A six-time Pro Bowler for the Colts, Hinton started 80 more games, including a Pro Bowl season in 1991 and an All-Pro nod in 1993.   Rison started for the Colts as a rookie and caught 52 passes in 1989. With the Falcons, Rison exploded, eclipsing 1,000 receiving yards in four of his five seasons in Atlanta. He finished his Falcons career with 5,633 yards and 56 touchdowns before bouncing around with five other teams in his final six seasons. The 1991 first round pick turned into WR Mike Pritchard, who spent nine solid, but unspectacular seasons in the NFL, finishing with 5,187 receiving yards. As for George, he spent four uninspiring seasons with the Colts with a 14-35 record as a starter, more interceptions than touchdowns (46 to 41) and was traded in 1994 to Atlanta.
    • You're kidding right? So Chris Hinton is worthy but AC isn't?
    • He kind of reminds me of someone like Strahan lite. He's so carefree and and goofy that it almost makes you want to worry about if he take the game serious, but then when you see him on the field he looks mean. Nah, we're good. Haha
