#4 Seed, Indianapolis Colts:
The Indianapolis Colts should have cruised fairly calmly into a wildcard playoff spot in 2021, unfortunately they had to deal with a colossal disaster. This disaster has caused havoc in more than 2 cities and is currently on it’s way to a 3rd city, nothing can stop the path of destruction this disaster is on and he goes by the name of Carson Wentz.
The Browns didn’t want Baker Mayfield because they wanted an adult at QB (quite ironic) but the Colts are the ones that should have stated that, or that they wanted any QB that wasn’t a madman on the field like Wentz.
Enter Matt Ryan, one of the league’s top tier game managers and one of the most consistent QB’s in the NFL. The Colts are packed with talent on offense and defense, they just needed a QB to pull the strings of the train and not drive it crashing down off the ledge of an abyss.
The Texans are a dumpster fire and so are the Jaguars until further notice, the Titans took a step back this year as well so 2022 is the season for Indy to step up and take control of the division. They were one game manager away from being a true playoff contender, and landed one of the best in the business.
Fun fact, Matt Ryan is actually the pass yards leader across all NFL QB’s since 2016 according to Statmuse.com.
