Default Colts Ranked #11 in ESPN Power Rankings

Sounds pretty fair to me:

https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/...?sf222445607=1

Looking forward, and barring major injury impacts, I’d estimate there’s a 50% chance we emerge with an 8-2 record after the next three games against Pittsburgh, Miami and JAX.

After that, the schedule gets a bit tougher but not unreasonably so (Houston, Tenn, TB, NO, Carolina and then JAX again), and I think we'll win at least half of these games, so it looks to me at this point like we'll ultimately end up with a record in the neighborhood of 11-5. Should be enough to win the South, particularly if we beat Houston a second time.

How does Houston and KC rank ahead of us? Didn't we just beat them both back to back weeks? Other than that looks about right.

ESPN has been reluctant to move us up their list, I think they had us at 28 in week 1. The athletic today has us at 7, chiefs 9 and houston 10.

The Steelers beat the Colts on their homefield in Indianapolis, have the same overall record as the Colts (5-4), and are riding a 4-game winning streak compared to the Colts' 2-game losing streak ........ but ESPN still has the Colts ranked ahead of them in this week's power rankings.


https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/...game-left-team


I believe that the power ranking reflect whom they think the better teams are at that time, not necessarily whom is more deserving of being regarded as more accomplished ........ and subsequently, I think that an argument can be made that the Chiefs were better than the Colts were 2 weeks ago (in spite of the Colts' win over them in Missouri), and that the Colts are still a little better than the Steelers are now (in spite of their win over the Colts in Indiana, plus the fact that they are riding a 4-game winning streak.)

Power Rankings are so fucking stupid! They don't mean anything!

The Colts are 17th and 18th in two other power rankings.

I agree with this. Is the NFL that bad? I don't get to watch the games but I'm pissed about the Dolphin loss.

This is as close to parity as I can recall.

Purely based on the fact that we are 5-4 should indicate we are marginally above average, so ought to be in the 13-16 range i would have thought.

sure, based purely on that. but when you think about other things like we lost to the shitty dolphins, at home, then we get ranked below many of the other 5-4 teams
