Sunday night’s crushing defeat to the Houston Texans was not only emotionally hard to swallow, but it significantly hurt their chances of making the playoffs.
It was disheartening but also far too common when it comes to the Colts.
Veteran running back Frank Gore joined the Colts before the 2015 season, hoping to reach the postseason as Indianapolis had done each of the three years prior.
"I came here to get into the tournament." Gore, who became the Colts’ first 100-yard rusher since 2010, was understandably upset about the loss.
The Colts are now at a crossroads in their season.
