The dumpster fire that we named the Colts last year is now 6-3 and in the thick of the playoff race. Raise your hand if you saw that coming. Anyone? Anyone at all?
Let's look at their schedule and results, though:

1 Sun Sep 9, 2012 @Bears L 21-41 0-1 62,341
2 Sun Sep 16, 2012 Vikings W 23-20 1-1 63,912
3 Sun Sep 23, 2012 Jaguars L 17-22 1-2 63,536
4 --- BYE WEEK ---
5 Sun Oct 7, 2012 Packers W 30-27 2-2 67,020
6 Sun Oct 14, 2012 @Jets L 9-35 2-3 79,088
7 Sun Oct 21, 2012 Browns W 17-13 3-3 64,560
8 Sun Oct 28, 2012 @Titans W 19-13 (OT) 4-3 69,143
9 Sun Nov 4, 2012 Dolphins W 23-20 5-3 66,479
10 Thu Nov 8, 2012 @Jaguars W 27-10 6-3 63,272

Their losses have been to mostly dogshit teams (the Jaguars are beyond terrible, the Jets are incredibly schizophrenic, the Bears are the outlier there), and they're barely squeaking by teams like Miami and Cleveland and Minnesota and Tennessee, when they should be smoking them (if they're a genuinely decent club). Their record is surprising, but for all the wrong reasons; I don't think this team is legit until at least another season (which makes sense, as it will take a while to dig out of the aftermath of Bill Polian shitting his pants for the last decade).
