7 of their 11 victories were by 6 points or less. 9 of their 11 victories were by 7 points or less. They won by an average of just over 6 points.
3 of their 5 losses were by 20 points or more. They only had 1 loss by fewer than 10 points and that was a 5 point loss to the Jaguars. They lost by an average of 19.6 ponts.
On the other hand, 5 of our 12 victories were by less than 10 points.We won by an average of just over 13 points.
All of our losses were over 10 points and we lost by an average of 19.7 points.
So one strange thing we had in common with the Colts was when we lost, we usually lost big-time. But we generally won by a lot more points.
