Colts suffered a heart-breaking loss last week at home against the Texans. It seemed like their season was just about done as they were facing a tough task in Week 15. Minnesota is also a team that looked to make a late-season Playoff push with their starting running back returning from injury. That defense in Minny was also considered as one of the best going into the game.
Well, today it looked just like an average defense. This squad actually looked like a below-average team that has no business making the Playoffs. Indianapolis Colts were in control of this match from the get-go, and there was no question about who is going to come on top.
Andrew Luck had a great day as he went 21/28 for 250 yards and two scores. This Vikings defense really didn’t look good, but the offense looked even worse as they were unable to get into the end zone against this Colts’ D that is widely considered as one of the worst that NFL has to offer. Frank Gore also had 101 rushing yards on 26 carries. That is a great sign for the Colts going forward.
Unluckily for them, the Titans and the Texans won their games. Both of those teams were in a losing situation for the most of their matchups but came up clutch and won those duels. If Texans had lost, the things would have gotten much more interesting in the division. Now, the Colts need Houston to lose its next two games.
