The Indianapolis Colts were on the brink of playoff contention last season.
Beyond the blunders they manifested in their two clinching opportunities, the team remains a threat in the AFC.
But perhaps the men on the other side of the football trench will help a veteran quarterback seriously consider playing for Indianapolis.
However, the cornerstone of their offensive line is guard Quenton Nelson.
Kindly refer to the tweet below if you have no idea how great he is.

Pro Football Focus shared that “Quenton Nelson is unreal” because he rarely makes mistakes.
Seeing him make an error is so rare that he’s only allowed four sacks in 2,365 pass-blocking snaps.
Aside from shutting down the pass rush, he also makes the necessary blocks to let Taylor loose.
Why Nelson’s Feat Is Important?
The offensive line’s importance was highly evident during the Cincinnati Bengals’ run to the Super Bowl.
Buying time for his quarterback makes Nelson great.
Giving that extra time allows the quarterback to scan the field for receivers before finding an open receiver.
Having Nelson as protector can also prolong a player’s career because they are not getting sacked.
If they remain healthy because the defense couldn’t touch them, they could easily make the right plays, giving them a higher chance of winning.
