The Colts Are Surprisingly Good in October

As you can see, October hasn’t been so scary for the Indianapolis Colts, who boast an impressive 12-8 record and .600 win percentage, making them the 13th-best October team in the NFL over the past five seasons. Indy’s first game of the month will be at home against the Los Angeles Rams Oct. 1. After losing former Super Bowl MVP Cooper Kupp to injury before the start of the season, the Rams found a diamond in the rough to replace him. Rookie Puka Nacau, the team’s fifth-round pick, amassed a record-breaking 25 receptions through his first 2 NFL games.

Next up for the Colts in October are a pair of divisional face-offs. First up, Indianapolis will take on the Tennessee Titans in Week 5. Then the following Sunday, the Colts will travel to Jacksonville for a re-match of Week 1. Indy will be looking to even the season series after dropping the first game 31-21. In Week 7, the Cleveland Browns will be coming to town, but they’ll be without running back Nick Chubb. The four-time Pro Bowler’s season ended following a brutal knee injury suffered during last week’s Monday Night Football game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Still, the Browns rallied for an impressive 27-3 victory over the Titans on Sunday.

The Colts will be back home at Lucas Oil Stadium for their final October game of the year to host the New Orleans Saints, who might be without QB Derek Carr. The Saints' major offseason addition left Sunday’s game against Green Bay in the third quarter with a shoulder injury. The Colts Super Bowl odds are a long shot at +13000 to win it all per DraftKings Sportsbook Kentucky.
