The Indianapolis Colts (7-6) are coming out of the bye week refreshed and relatively healthy, ready to make a run at the postseason over the final four games.

With a massive playoff-implicated matchup arriving Saturday night when the New England Patriots come to town, the Colts have their chance to prove they belong in the playoff discussion.

Here is where the Colts are sitting in the power rankings entering Week 15:

Author’s Take: “Out of the playoffs prior to their bye week, they’re now the AFC’s No. 6 seed. This in-season “Hard Knocks” gig really seems to be working well for Indianapolis.”

Author’s Take: “If the season ended today, the Indianapolis Colts would be the No. 6 seed in the AFC. It’s quite the achievement for a team that opened the 2021 season with three consecutive losses.

Since then, it has been a different story, though. And as we head to Week 15, the Colts are the team no one wants to play.

With the Titans’ Derrick Henry out, Jonathan Taylor has assumed the title of the league’s best running back. Quarterback Carson Wentz has rebounded from a sluggish and injury-marred start to his tenure with the team and is playing well. The Colts sport one of the best offensive lines in the game. And an opportunistic defense led by defensive tackle DeForest Buckner and linebacker Darius Leonard entered Week 14 leading the league with 29 takeaways.

Now it’s time to put up or shut up for the Colts. The first post-bye game is a home date against the AFC’s No. 1 seed in the New England Patriots. Then it’s a trip to Arizona to face the NFC’s top seed in the Cardinals.

It’s a brutal two-game span, and a Week 17 tilt with the Raiders isn’t exactly a breeze.

But for the Colts to have a realistic shot at the postseason in the crowded AFC, they probably need to win at least two of those games.”

Author’s Take: “It’s no surprise that the Colts are ranked in the top 10 offensively, especially with MVP contender Jonathan Taylor at running back. The true test over the season’s stretch run will be on the defensive side of the ball, because the Colts will be tested by the Patriots, Cardinals and Raiders in their next three contests. The Patriots and Cardinals are on top of their respective divisions, while the Raiders are trying to remain in the playoff hunt in the AFC. — Mike Wells”

Author’s Take: “The Colts couldn’t have asked for a better bye, with the exception of the Titans beating the Jaguars. But with the AFC South crown being a longshot, anyway, it was nice to ascend to playoff position before getting a key test for Jonathan Taylor vs. the Patriots’ defense at home.”

Author’s Take: “Prior to the season, I thought the ceiling for the Colts would be a Wild Card spot. Although that may be where they’re relegated to because of their slow start to the year, they’ve really figured out their identity throughout the 2021 campaign.

Carson Wentz has always been a volatile player. However, Frank Reich and company seem to have really pounded into his head that he doesn’t need to go out and win every single down. He’s gotten better at rolling with the punches, and he’s making far fewer mistakes.

Defensively, the Colts are a bit boom-or-bust at times, but they boom quite a bit. Darius Leonard is a ball-hawking linebacker, and the rest of the defense feeds off that. Their 29 takeaways are the most in the NFL.”

Author’s Take: “The Colts enjoyed the advantage of a late bye and now have everything in front of them, with back-to-back matchups against the Patriots and Cardinals. Those two teams have a combined record of 19-7, and Indianapolis has a chance to stamp itself as a legit Super Bowl contender in the most crucial two-week stretch of its season. Much has been made about the Colts’ poor record against quality opponents, but their last three losses — to the Ravens, Titans and Bucs — were all games in which Indy led or was tied in the fourth quarter. If the Colts learn how to close out games, there is no ceiling on their season.”

Author’s Take: “They are firmly in the playoff chase, but they come off the bye with a home game against the Patriots. That’s a proving-ground game for this team.
