Six games remaining and a three-game lead in the AFC South.

That’s where things stand for the Indianapolis Colts. They should win the division for the first time since 2010 unless they completely collapse down the stretch. And even then, they still may win it when you think about the rest of the teams in the division.

I predicted that the Colts would go 10-6 when the season started. They’re currently 7-3 with half of their remaining games on the road.

There’s a chance the Colts could match their win total from a year ago -- 11 -- because only three of their remaining games are against teams with a winning record. The three games are all on the road. The Colts still have issues with slow starts; they've been outscored 66-9 in the first half of their past three games. They’ll be fine if they can get that fixed. If not, there could be a lot of suspense in the remaining games.

Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer threw for 419 yards in their victory over Jacksonville on Sunday. The Colts are 18th in the league in pass defense at 239 yards a game. That’s not a good thing when the Cardinals have Larry Fitzgerald at receiver. Fellow receiver Michael Floyd had six catches for 193 yards against the Jaguars. Colts cornerback Greg Toler should be back in the lineup to face his former team after missing the past three games with a groin injury.
