2020 NFL Standings, playoff races: Saints, Colts remain in first place, Steelers stay undefeated and lead AFC

The Colts trailed 28-14 at halftime, but they dominated the second half to take a 31-28 lead.

The Indianapolis Colts Finally Built A Defensive Monster

When the Indianapolis Colts hired Chuck Pagano as head coach, he promised to “Build the Monster”: a perennially tough, hard-nosed team like the one he coached in Baltimore.
