Indianapolis Colts. 22. team. 46. . . Previous: 29th

22. Indianapolis Colts

Every week there seems to be at least one shocking outcome and on Sunday, the biggest was by far the Indianapolis Colts securing their first win of the season against the Kansas City Chiefs. After the Chiefs survived a Thursday night game against the Los Angeles Chargers last week, they had extra time to prepare but the Colts took it to them.

Matt Ryan had his best game with Indy and Johnathan Taylor was slowed down with 71 yards on 21 rushes but it was enough to keep the defense honest. They also had Alec Pierce show up with 61 yards on three catches.


But it was Michael Pittman who made the plays to get them in range for the game-winning touchdown which was hauled in by Jelani Woods. Now at 1-1-1, the Colts can still make a run in the AFC North, which is suddenly led by the 2-1 Jaguars.

team. 57. . . Previous: 27th. Chicago Bears. 21

21. Chicago Bears

The only thing exciting about the game between the Chicago Bears and Houston Texans was the way Khalil Herbert performed after replacing an injured David Montgomery. Herbert went off with 157 yards and two touchdowns as the Bears put up 281 yards as a team.

That was much needed since the passing attack was awful. Justin Fields had just 106 yards with two picks while completing 8-of-17 passes. He appeared to have taken some strides forward in the preseason but so far, it’s been an ugly start. There are hardly any weapons but it still seems worse than expected.

Even so, Chicago is somehow 2-1, although they did beat San Francisco in a game that was practically played underwater and now have a win over the Texans — who don’t appear to be trying at all.
