Indianapolis Colts statistical comparison

We all know the rhetoric. After a 1-5 start, first-year head coach Frank Reich rallied his troops and went on a 9-1 run to finish the year. The effort narrowly awarded Indianapolis a playoff bid for the first time since the 2014 season.

But beyond wins and losses, how exactly did the Colts get to where they are? In what areas do they excel and where do they need to improve? Ahead of this weekend’s playoff battle with the Texans, let’s take a look at how the Colts stack up statistically against the rest of the league.
