Colts Cast: Colts 20-17 Loss to Steelers Was Huge Wasted Opportunity

New, comments

The Colts again wasted an opportunity to hold a two-score second half lead and are now 3-3 in one-score games in 2017

Another two-score second half lead, another one-score loss for the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts are 3-3 in one-score games this season and instead of heading into the bye week at 3-7, they could very well be entering their mid-season break at 6-4 and be right in the thick of the AFC South race.

But, they haven’t closed out winnable games, and they’re far from being in the divisional race as it currently stands. Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium the Colts still held a legitimate chance to kick off a nice second-half-of-the-season run, but fell short yet again with the game well within reach.

The Colts brought some pressure despite not having it show up on the stat sheet, their coverage was very good for large stretches of the game and the offense came out flaming, but it was all for naught as Jacoby Brissett’s accuracy and decision-making suffered just as the offensive line looked to be as porous as ever.

Simply put, the Colts now have no chance to get back into the playoff race despite haveing a favorable schedule to round out the season. The future is so bright for the organization with Chris Ballard in that chair, it’s simply going to take more time than we are willing to allow.
