Do you mean if the Colts end up with nine wins? Ok, I have worked on the playoff machine at ESPN
. I have come up with only one scenario the Colts don't make the playoffs. If the Colts lose out and finish 9-7, the Bengals win out and finish 10-6 and the Steelers go 2-1 (Loss to Cincinnati) the Colts would still make it as the sixth seed over Pittsburgh. If Pittsburgh were to win that game over Cincy then the Steelers would make it as the 5th seed, Colts as the 6th.
The only team that can ruin the playoff chances of the Colts is the New York Jets. If the Colts end up losing out & the Jets win out and the Steelers or Bengals take care of business the Colts would be out. That's the only scenario the Colts won't make the playoffs.
