The Indianapolis Colts are going into the 2013 NFL season on a high. They made the playoffs last season with a rookie quarterback and will work on trying to win the AFC South with a belief that they can beat out the Tennessee Titans and the Houston Texans for the division title. However, they have a lot of room for improvement.
In the first game of the 2013 preseason, the Colts lost to the Buffalo Bills. The offensive line looked shaky, but the rest of the starters looked really good. If the starting defense can hold up in an offensively strong AFC South, the Colts offense will be able to do big things.
Once the second and third strings were introduced, the biggest surprise was the running back that the Colts selected in the seventh round of the 2013 NFL Draft. Kerwynn Williams played extremely well and, although he didn’t get many carries, looked to be a consistent runner. Williams was a steal in the draft and will be great for the Colts in the future.
Indianapolis will still play the New York Giants, the Cleveland Browns and the Cincinnati Bengals. They will be looking for Andrew Luck to have strong performances before going to the bench, but what their main focus will be on is their rookies, new additions and their offensive line.
Expect Indianapolis to not win many of their preseason games. Their starters are good, but their backups are not the best in the league. The regular season is where teams need to watch out for what the Colts can do.
