It's Tuesday, which means that it's time to take a look at the power rankings once again! It seems like a while since the Colts last played, and their 33-28 victory over the Houston Texans on Thursday Night Football really didn't impact their ranking much in the power rankings. In fact, the Colts stayed exactly the same.
ESPN's power rankings has the Colts eighth, the same as a week ago:
T.Y. Hilton had a career-high 223 receiving yards Thursday, the second most for a player in any game this season. Andrew Luck completed all nine of his passes targeting Hilton.
CBS's Pat Kirwan has the Colts ranked sixth, which is where he had them last week too:
6. Colts (6): The Colts can win on the road, mostly because of Andrew Luck and are already 3-0 in the division. Their present four-game winning streak (Jaguars, Titans, Ravens and Texans) is impressive.
CBS's Pete Prisco has the Colts at number nine, which is exactly where he had them last week as well:
It's amazing the warts on this team that Andrew Luck covers up. He is in the MVP race for sure.
NFL.com's Elliot Harrison ranked the Colts seventh, the same as last week:
Indianapolis got it done down in Houston with plenty of offense, some laaaaate turnovers and, well, a little hanging on. The Colts got the key Andre Johnson fumble when they needed it, surviving multiple return volleys from the Texans. Hey, that's what good teams are supposed to do. If everything went as blueprinted in life, we'd all be pissing off Metallica's drummer by downloading music from Napster.
The New York Post's Bart Hubbuch has the Colts number nine, the same place he had them a week ago:
9. Colts, 4-2 (9): Winners of four in a row, they might clinch this sorry division by Halloween.
SB Nation's Danny Kelly has the Colts ranked tenth, the same as last week.
Every power ranking we looked at has the Colts ranked exactly where they were last week, which feels about right. After a win over the Texans with some ups and some downs, the Colts weren't overly impressive, but their four game winning streak and Andrew Luck continue to be enough to keep them in the top ten. While they stayed the same this week, with a big game against the Bengals this weekend, odds are that next Tuesday we'll see some changes in the team's rankings.
