New, comments

All 32 ESPN team writers put out a game-by-game preview of the 2015 season, so let's take a look at what the opposing writers said about the Colts' games.

With the NFL schedule release last night, many people are already doing pre-draft predictions of the 2015 season for teams, and we did as well for the Coltswhich you can read here.

The 32 team writers for ESPN also released game-by-game predictions, and Mike Wells had the Colts going 13-3.  An interesting idea was to compile what the opposing teams said about the games, as Arrowhead Pride did.  In other words, here are what the ESPN writers covering the Colts' opponents said about the games against Indy:

Week 1: Colts 24, Bills 21 - WIN

Week 2: Colts 27, Jets 14 - WIN

Week 3: Colts 37, Titans 20 - WIN

Week 4: Colts 37, Jaguars 17 - WIN

Week 5: Colts 28, Texans 17 - WIN

Week 6: Colts 30, Patriots 17 - WIN

Week 7: Saints 34, Colts 30 - LOSS

Week 8: Colts 21, Panthers 17 - WIN

Week 9: Colts 28, Broncos 24 - WIN

Week 10: BYE WEEK

Week 11: Colts 34, Falcons 28 - WIN

Week 12: Colts 35, Buccaneers 17 - WIN

Week 13: Colts 34, Steelers 27 - WIN

Week 14: Colts 24, Jaguars 17 - WIN

Week 15: Colts 17, Texans 10 - WIN

Week 16: Colts 30, Dolphins 23 - WIN

Week 17: Colts 30, Titans 24 - WIN

OVERALL RECORD: 15-1

So there you have it.  According to the ESPN writers who cover the opposing teams that the Colts will be playing this year, the Colts will go 15-1 in 2015, with the lone loss coming to the Saints at home.  I'm pretty sure that every Colts fan would take this season in an instant.  What this shows us clearly is that the expectation around Indianapolis is felt around the rest of the league as well: the Colts are expected to be a very good team in 2015 and poised to make a run.
