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

Steelers- W

Jaguars- W

 

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.

Buffalo bounces the Chiefs in KC?

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..

    • Ballard is a better talent evaluator (at least at most positions). He’s clearly the smarter and better GM in that regard (how much better is subjective but it’s a noticeable amount). I also think he has had far more resources too though.   But I think the argument you are making is how much does that matter without the results? And when does it become about the results?  But if you are looking for an objective comparison between the two...you likely won’t find it on a Colts discussion forum. It’s not a valid comp to make anyways imo...but it doesn’t matter. The way so many people vilify Grigs and deify Ballard now has made it too polarizing of a topic. And for so many...Grigs is now the villain and Ballard the hero no matter what happens.   Everyone is entitled their own opinion though. I just don’t think Ballard is as great as most think and that Grigs was as bad as most think. Or to put it another way...Ballard gets too much credit and Grigs not enough.   And anyways, I choose to look back on the Grigs/Luck era fondly. It was a very exciting time to be a Colts fans...playoff football, active FA periods, SB hype. Luck getting hurt when he did was a very unfortunate turn of events, but % happens.        
    • I was thinking about this yesterday, and I think it's actually essential that the Colts sign a tackle in FA. They don't need to spend big, but finding a league average guy for like 1/$8m would be fantastic.   The Colts definitely also need to address tackle in the draft. However, if they go into the draft without a league average tackle, they have to take one with pick 21 (or trade back slightly and take one with the new pick). Even if s great player falls there - Kwitty Paye, one of the good corners or receivers, etc. - they'll be forced to pass on them and take a tackle because they have nothing else there.   If someone like AV is signed, a league average starter would already be in place, and you would have maximum flexibility to take whoever you want with pick 21.   If it's a non-tackle that you can't pass on, you can take him. If it's a tackle that you want, you can take him and actually have depth at tackle for a change. If you are comfortable trading back and still taking a tackle later, you can do that too. 
    • This.   People are placing far too much stock in the cliche that guards are less valuable. The average guard is less valuable than the average tackle, but the best guard in the league is way more valuable than like 90% of the NFL.
    • It’s really not though. Luck was great, but it’s not like he was Mahomes setting the league on fire. He never had a QBR above 66 during those (3) seasons. And his best season (prior to 2018) was actually 2016...and the Colts went 8-8.   It’s a team sport. Watson was a top 3-5 QB this past season and his team won 4 games. Stafford has a losing record in his career. Great QB play is the most important thing...but it doesn’t win 11 games on its own. So I disagree that Luck was dragging those teams to 11-win seasons. And I know that’s not what you said...but I see this argument quite often. And it’s disingenuous at best.    They were good teams. They beat other really good teams as well, including in the playoffs where Luck was less than stellar (to put it politely).    And to be fair, Ballard’s only playoff win (in 4 seasons as GM) was with Luck at QB. So it’s not like he has truly separated himself in that regard (at least from a playoff standpoint). If the Colts don’t win a playoff game this season, that will be his 5th season (the same number Grigson had).
