Before the 2022 NFL season started, the Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos were considered serious contenders for a spot in the AFC playoffs.
Meanwhile, both teams have solid run games, starting with the Colts’ Jonathan Taylor.
In his second year with Indianapolis, the former Wisconsin standout led the league in carries (332), rushing yards (1,811), and touchdowns (18).
Unfortunately, things haven’t gone their way, especially in putting points on the board.
