Andrew Luck has led the Indianapolis Colts one step further into the playoffs each year in his career thus far. Does this mean a Super Bowl appearance is in store for the 2015 version of the Colts? Based on the returning talent of the roster along with some key additions, it appears that Indianapolis has a legitimate shot to go the distance this season.
Over the offseason Luck gained some valuable weapons to add to an already loaded Colts offense. His receiving corps received a big lift by replacing the retired Reggie Wayne with Andre Johnson who came to Indianapolis via free agency from the Houston Texans. Although Johnson is on the downside of his career,
he does still have some legs and should catch his fair share of passes this season along with young talent T.Y Hilton. Rookie wideout Phillip Dorsett also adds speed and a great set of hands to Luck’s arsenal. In the backfield, Colts ticket holders will no longer have to cringe with every handoff to Trent Richardson, as they signed veteran Frank Gore who has showed no signs of slowing down.
In the playoffs last season, the Colts defense was clearly their weakness. In an effort to bolster their squad this offseason, Indianapolis signed some key players such as defensive end Kendall Langford, safety Dwight Lowry, inside linebacker Nate Irving and outside linebacker Trent Cole. Vontae Davis is one of the best cornerbacks in the league and will be looking to mess with opposing receivers all season long.
This season’s schedule is a favorable one for the Colts as their first five opponents did not make the playoffs in 2014. The rest of the schedule works out nicely as well with only four teams in last year’s post season on the entire 2015 docket. The Colts are ready to take their post season play to the next level and fans could not be more excited. Be sure to secure your Indianapolis Colts tickets today so you don’t miss any of the action.
