A weekly examination of the Colts' ESPN.com Power Ranking:
Preseason: 10 | Last Week: 7 | ESPN.com Power Ranking since 2002
A 29-point loss to the Arizona Cardinals, who are on a four-game winning streak, dropped the Colts only three spots in this week’s rankings. The Colts can move up in the rankings and get a step closer to their first AFC South title since 2010 with a victory over the Tennessee Titans in Indianapolis on Sunday.
The Colts are currently the third seed in the AFC. They would play the Titans if the playoffs were to start today. The Colts have yet to lose back-to-back games with Andrew Luck at quarterback. Indianapolis will be in an interesting position if it loses to Tennessee this weekend. The Colts’ lead in the division would be down to one game and then they go on the road to play at Cincinnati on Dec. 8.
Here’s a breakdown of this week’s voting:
Ashley Fox: 9
Mike Sando: 15
Kevin Seifert: 9
John Clayton: 7
Dan Graziano: 10
Jamison Hensley: 10
