10. Indianapolis Colts

After dropping five of their first six games this season, it seemed like Frank Reich may have been the wrong person to turn the Indianapolis Colts around, but five straight wins later, and it would appear that Josh McDaniels snub may have been the best thing that could have ever happened to the organization.

With Andrew Luck back under center, and an improved, balanced offensive assault thanks to the emergence of Marlon Mack, the Colts are riding pretty in second place in the AFC South, within striking distance of the Houston Texans atop the division.

And hey, if the Texans drop the ball and lose to the Titans on Monday Night Football, we could be looking at three teams within a game of first place in the highly contested AFC South. That could be seriously fun to watch over the final month of the season.

With a bout against the aforementioned Texans, as well as very winnable games against the Dallas Cowboys, Jacksonville Jaguars, and New York Giants left on their schedule, the Colts could very well finish out the season with a 9-7 record at worst in route to what could be their first playoff appearance in the Reich-era.

Also, unrelated, but why does a 46-year-old Adam Vinatieri look exactly like Brett Favre? It’s uncanny.
