2. Indianapolis Colts (2-2)
Week 4 ranking: 2nd
The Colts are hanging to the No. 2 spot over the Jags by a thread after a huge letdown game against the Raiders. The Colts were coming into Week 4 on the heels of two big wins over the Titans and Falcons, but came crashing back down to earth in this one.
And not only did the Colts lose, they allowed 31 points to a Raiders team that had scored just 24 points combined the last two weeks. Oakland absolutely gashed Indy on the ground to the tune of 188 yards and 5.9 yards per carry. Trevor Davis is now a curse word in Indianapolis.
On offense, the Colts saw quarterback Jacoby Brissett throw for three touchdowns, but he also threw a pick and averaged a measly 5.8 yards per completion. Running back Marlon Mack was quiet, and it’s apparent this Colts team will have troubles on offense when the ground game doesn’t give support.
Going into Week 5, the Colts have about as daunting a task as an NFL team can have in this day and age: a matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs. If the Colts defense looked this bad against the Raiders, just imagine what could happen on Sunday in KC.
