How the Colts can make the NFL playoffs

Since the NFL created its current divisional arrangement in 2002, 55 teams have started the season 1-5. One of those teams — the 2015 Kansas City Chiefs, who reeled off 10 consecutive wins — has made the playoffs.

The Indianapolis Colts are looking to be No. 2.

New England, Pittsburgh and Houston all lead their divisions by at least two games with Kansas City currently holding the No. 1 seed at 9-2 with the L.A. Chargers holding a two-game lead on the first AFC wild card.

That leaves five teams — Miami, Baltimore, Cincinnati, Indianapolis and Tennessee — tied for the second wild card spot at 5-5.
