The Indianapolis Colts should be considered a favorite in the AFC

I’ve said this ever since Andrew Luck’s playing days at Stanford during his College years and I’ll continue to say it.

Andrew Luck reminds me of a younger Peyton Manning. This team should be considered as a serious favorite to  reach the Super Bowl, even win it all together.

You look at their biggest three wins this year, being the Seattle Seahawks, San Francisco 49ers and the Denver Broncos of course being their biggest of them all.

This team is great all around. Their defense looked confident even though they allowed Peyton to throw for three touchdowns, but still held him off long enough to pickup the victory.

That’s all that really matters when it comes to this game. Every great defense gives up some big plays and allows a quarterback to throw for three touchdowns but to be fair, it was Peyton Manning. This is a team who dominated Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers.

A team who took down Russell Wilson and that dangerous Seattle Seahawks defense. Andrew Luck is slowly turning himself into a quarterback that should be listed in the top 10 of this league.

Not only can the man do it through the air, but he can also pull the ball down and move the chains with his leagues. Now I know we’re only going into Week 8 and there is A LOT of football to play, but this team could very well be in the AFC Championship game in January.

Despite their losses to the Miami Dolphins and San Diego Chargers, a big win against Peyton Manning and the Broncos will give this team a spark that will keep them going for the remainder of the season.

Andrew Luck is 136 of 224 for 1574 passing yards with 10 touchdowns and three interceptions. He’s also close to breaking 200 rushing yards on 28 carries with three touchdowns.

The rest of their schedule looks like this.

@ Texans November 3rd

vs Rams November 10th

@ Titans November 14th

@ Cardinals November 24th

vs Titans December 1st

@ Bengals December 8th

vs Texans December 15th

@ Chiefs December 22nd

vs Jacksonville December 29th

Circle that game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
