    In 2013 the Colts saw themselves one game away from the big show. Standing in there way was a gritty Jets squad, whos strength and power outmatched the Colts and shredded there hopes of taking the Lombardi trophy back to Indy. Fast forward 2 seasons later, the Colts see themselves back on a run for the SB and once again they see green. This time around, steady balance and execution proved to be the difference as the Colts beat down the Jets 41-7 and sending them back to the AFC Championship game.

    The Jets would take the opening kickoff. There first drive seemed promising as they marched into Colts territory. A Lamarr Houston sack pushed them back to the edge of FG range and it proved to be enough as the Jets would miss a deep FG and turn the ball over to the Colts. With good field position the Colts would drive inside the 5 but would have to settle for a FG to go up 3-0. On the Jets next drive they started to feel the heat of the Colts, Sproles took a handoff right and Wesley Woodard put a big hit on him forcing the ball out and turning it over.

    Next play from scrimmage Luck hit Hilton on a deep ball over the middle and an absolute circus catch resulted in 6. As the Colts would quickly go up 10-0. From that point on the Colts kept the pressure heavy. Hardin and the Jets just couldnt figured out there passing scheme, nor find rythmn.

    Delone Carter kept the Jets D on there toes all day pounding out 123 on the ground and running in 2 tds. Rookie Emmanuel Humphrey added to the run game tallying up 52yds on 9 carries. Luck also added the balance of the pass game completing 9 of 12 with 194 in the air and 3 tds. With this win...the Colts see themselves one game away from the big show once again. They will face an always tough Broncos squad in a rematch of the AFC Divsional 2 seasons ago.
