Another loss, another blow to the Colts playoff hopes that currently sit on life support. At 4-7-1 and holding the tenth best record in the AFC the Colts are squarely on the outside looking in.

Unfortunately, with five games left on the schedule the Colts IN THEORY still have chance to squeak in to the post season. Per the New York Times playoff simulator they still have a 2% chance to make the playoffs, but it would take them winning out and getting a ton of help along the way.

So there’s still hope right? Perhaps the schedule gets easier?

I mean they only play *checks notes* the Cowboys on the road this week and then they still have to play *checks notes again* the Vikings, Chargers, Giants and Texans.

Five games left and four of their five games are against potential playoff teams? Remember how I said the playoff hopes were on life support? It’s time to pull the plug.

That’s tough for any Colts fan to hear, and if you want to root for meaningless wins more power to you, but all that really matters now is gaining the best draft pick possible in 2023.

Here’s to this losing streak extending to three games this week and to closing the year with seven straight losses.

In happier developments, Wednesday on The Dan Dakich Show THE DEAN Mike Chappell of Fox 59 and CBS 4 stopped by to share his takeaways from the Colts 24-17 loss to the Steelers and discuss where things go from here.
