It's pretty straightforward: with a half dozen games to go, the Colts will need three wins to give themselves a shot at the playoffs. With two against the high-flying Texans (at 8-2 ... or wait. What was that call?) and a third away against Detroit, the Colts are going to need this game to stay away from the edge. Cue the Buffalo Bills.
"We are in a position now where if we win out, we're in," Colts receiver Reggie Wayne said. "There are a lot of teams that want our position. They are going to treat every game like a playoff game and we need to do the same. Every game from now on is going to be real crucial for this ball club."
Funny that a Week 12 matchup against the Buffalo Bills holds so much importance, but in this case, I'll take the 3.5 point spread.
