The road to Super Bowl XLVII is not so far-fetched for the Indianapolis Colts. The team has road gutsy, but flawed performances by rookie quarterback Andrew Luck to the 11 wins in the regular season. This would seem to stifle any notion of Indianapolis Colts tickets going much farther beyond the wild card round matchup with the Baltimore Ravens. Yet, a quick look at the rest of the AFC playoff field shows only one team with a stalwart enough defense to render the current Colts offense null and void.
That team is the Denver Broncos. The Patriots rely on turnovers, the Texans are more and more susceptible to defensive lapses, the Ravens are just as poor a defensive team as the Colts, and the Bengals give up rushing yards. Now, if Indy is able to ramp up the offensive effort the fans will not be enjoying a game at Lucas Oil Stadium, but they could be enjoying a trip to New Orleans to play in Super Bowl XLVII at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
The current Colts offense is led by quite a few rookies. Luck, as mentioned before, has been able to bounce back from rookie mistakes and produce double-digit wins over the course of the regular season schedule. He has found help in the form of veteran receiver Wayne, but he has also found a major playmaker of late in fellow rookie T.Y. Hilton. Rookie running back Vick Ballard has not had a stellar regular season, but this as much an issue with the offensive line as it is with his running style and vision. He has had moments of greatness and those would be welcome in the postseason to take some of the pressure off of Luck and the passing game.
Of course, the Indianapolis Colts have to improve the defense. The unit had far too few turnovers to make up for the rookie mistakes, the front seven did a fourth-to-last effort of stopping the run, and the passing defense was far from good. There were glimpses of this late in the season against the Texans. If this effort does not dissipate in the postseason, then Indianapolis Colts playoff tickets could take fans to locations across the United States.
