They have this prolific offense AND got to play more than half their games against nearly the worst possible pass defenses.
Against those teams they averaged 37 points. They also were afforded the luxury of playing 2 games against 2 of the worst offenses in the league Chicago and Detroit in which they laid an even 41 points on each team.
A lot of teams played against these weak defenses and did not put up near the numbers that the Colts did. The Colts offense is good like no other! Maybe Minnesota and Kansas City are close when everyone is healthy, but that's it. A lot of teams also played N.E., Baltimore, Jax and did not come close to scoring 23 points. Admit it already! This is not overhype!
This doesn't mean that I guarantee that the Colts will beat the Pats or that I necessarilly say that the Colts will win it all. I want them to win, but I understand that N.E., Pitt, and NY are good teams and it will be a tough road, but please do not say the Colts' offense is overhyped or overated.
