*2013 playoff team

 

According to the Rick Gosselin of the Dallas Morning News, the Colts achieved 11 wins this year despite having 83 games lost by starters.  The total incurred by the Colts was second behind 91 games lost by New York Giants starters.

 

The study contends the NFL lost a record 1,600 games by starters this season because of injuries, including a record 861 on offense.  Among playoff teams, New England (74) had the second-most, followed by Green Bay (70), New Orleans (61), Carolina (57), Denver (53), San Diego (52), Seattle (44), Cincinnati (40), San Francisco (39), Philadelphia (29) and Kansas City (22).

 

Green Bay (153) and the Colts (149) have suffered the most games lost by starters due to injury over the last two years, but the teams earned consecutive playoff berths nonetheless.

*Starters placed on season-ending injured reserve

 

The Colts opened the season with 19 new players on roster, with 10 of those players arriving through veteran free agency.  The total of new players now on the active roster totals 27.

 

The Colts were 9-1 in games decided by seven points or less last year, the most number of such games by a team in 2012.  Indianapolis has won 13 of its last 14 games decided by seven points or less, 5-1 in 2013.

 

The Colts did not lose consecutive games in 2013, marking the 10th such season in franchise history (1964, 1967, 1968, 1970, 1971, 1976, 1999, 2003, 2012, 2013) and only the third back-to-back seasonal performances in franchise history.

 

Chuck Pagano has joined Don Shula (1967-68) and Don McCafferty (1970-71) as the only Colts coaches to post consecutive seasons without back-to-back losses.

 

The Colts are 10-0 under Chuck Pagano in games following losses, with a 253-170 scoring margin in those wins, an 8.3-point margin per victory.

 

The Colts have played 31 straight games without consecutive losses to rank among the franchise best streaks.  Chuck Pagano has a 32-game streak without consecutive losses to rank among the all-time Colts head coaches, and he has set the franchise record to start a career, surpassing Don McCafferty (28, 1970-71).

In 2012, Andrew Luck (339-of-627 passing for 4,374 and 23 TDs) had six 300 games, the NFL rookie record and also set league rookie marks in attempts and yards. 

 

Luck (23) was one of a handful of rookie quarterbacks to throw 20 or more touchdown passes (26, Peyton Manning, 1998; 26, Russell Wilson, 2012; 22, Charlie Conerly, 1948; 21, Cam Newton, 2011; 20, Dan Marino, 1983; 20, Andy Dalton, 2011, 20, Robert Griffin III, 2012).

 

Luck took every snap in 2012 (1,109) and took the first 1,364 of his career before sitting down at Jacksonville on 9/29/13 with a 34-3 lead.  His 1,364 consecutive snaps rank among the best accomplished by Indianapolis Colts quarterbacks (1,631, Peyton Manning; 1,590, Manning (a career-opening total); 1,459, Manning; 1,400, Manning; 1,205, Manning; 1,088 Manning).

 

In 2012, Luck produced seven wins in fourth-quarter or overtime fashion, tying the NFL seasonal record done six other times, including in 1999 and 2009 by Manning.  His seven in a single season tied for the most by a veteran or rookie QB since at least 1970.  With his sixth comeback win, he snapped the record he shared with Ben Roethlisberger (2004) and Vince Young (2006).  The comeback performances came against Minnesota, Green Bay, at Tennessee, Miami, at Detroit, vs. Tennessee and at Kansas City. 

 

The NFL post-merger record for rookie starting wins is 13 by Ben Roethlisberger in 2004.  Matt Ryan and Joe Flacco had 11 in 2008.  Luck and Russell Wilson had 11 in 2012, while Kyle Orton had 10 in 2005. 

 

Luck had his eighth fourth-quarter comeback win vs. Oakland 9/8/13, the most ever accomplished by an NFL QB in the first 17 games of a career.  He posted his ninth against Seattle 10/6/13, the most through the first 21 games by any QB drafted first overall that began a career since 1970.  He earned a 10th at Houston on 11/3/13.

 

With 10 game-winning drives in the fourth quarter or overtime in the first two seasons of a career since 1970, Luck is the NFL leader in that category, ahead of Jake Plummer (9), Russell Wilson (8) and Peyton Manning (8).

 

With a record of 22-10 in his first 32 games, Luck reached 15 wins faster than any QB drafted first overall since 1970.  Through 20 games, he had been tied with John Elway (1983) with a 14-6 mark.  The most wins among QBs in their first two career seasons since 1970 are 24 by Russell Wilson, 22 by Ben Roethlisberger, 22 by Luck, 21 by Dan Marino, 21 by Otto Graham and 20 by Joe Flacco and Matt Ryan.  In the pre-Super Bowl era, the best was 21 by Otto Graham in 1950-51.

 

Luck has 8,196 passing yards, the most accomplished through the first two seasons of a career.  Luck moved ahead of Cam Newton (7,920), Peyton Manning (7,874), Dan Marino (7,294), Andy Dalton (7,067) and Drew Bledsoe (7,049).

Vinatieri had nine points vs. Kansas City 1/4/14 in the Wild Card Playoffs to up his NFL-best playoff point total to 205.

 

Vinatieri has played in 26 career playoff games, tying with Larry Cole (Dallas) and Bill Romanowski (San Francisco, Philadelphia, Denver, Oakland) for third-most, behind Jerry Rice (29, San Francisco, Oakland, Seattle) and D.D. Lewis (27, Dallas).

 

In 2012, linebacker Jerrell Freeman topped the club in tackles in each of the first seven games before the streak ended.  Freeman topped the team in tackles in 13 games.  Freeman (203) became the second Colts player in the Indianapolis era to have a 200-tackle season, and his total is the all-time best (200, Jeff Herrod, 1994; 192, Cliff Odom, 1985).

 

In 2013, Freeman led the team in tackles against San Francisco, Jacksonville (twice), Seattle, Denver, St. Louis, Arizona, Tennessee, Houston and Kansas City and has topped the team in stops in 23-of-32 career games.  He has reached double digits in tackles in 25-of-32 games (13, 2012; 12, 2013).

 

Freeman had his first career multiple-sack game with 2.0 vs. Miami 9/15/13, the fourth undrafted free agent in the Indianapolis era to have a multiple-sack outing (2.0, Scott Virkus vs. Detroit 9/22/85; Tony Siragusa at Seattle 9/4/94; Eric Foster at Jacksonville 12/17/09).

 

Freeman had a strip-sack vs. Miami 9/15/13 and at San Francisco 9/22/13.  With sacks in consecutive games, he became the first Colts LB other than Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis to do so since Rob Morris in 2004.

 

Freeman earned AFC Defensive Player-of-the Week honors at Kansas City with seven stops, one sack, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.

 

In 2012, T.Y. Hilton had five 100-yard games in 2012 to set the club rookie record.   With 50-861, 7 TDs, Hilton was the 9th Colts rookie with 50 receptions (65, Bill Brooks, 1986; 64, Marvin Harrison, 1996; 62, Edgerrin James, 1999; 60, Austin Collie, 2009; 52, Andre Rison, 1989; 52, Marshall Faulk, 1994; 50, Randy McMillan, 1981; 50, Jerome Pathon, 1998).  His yardage total ranked 2nd for Colts rookies (1,131, Brooks; 836, Harrison), and his touchdowns tied for third-most (8, Brooks and Harrison; 7, John Mackey and Collie).

 

He was 6-124 vs. Miami 9/15/13 for sixth career 100-plus game, and it marked a career-high yardage total.  Hilton set a new career high with 140 yards on five receptions vs. Seattle 10/6/13, including a 73-yard scoring reception. 

 

Hilton had an eighth career 100-yard game with 7-121, 3 TDs at Houston 11/3/13.  He became the 11th Colts player, the seventh WR, with 3 TDs in a game, with scores of 10, 58 and nine yards.

 

Hilton’s ninth 100-yard game was vs. St. Louis 11/10/13 with 7-130. 

 

Hilton had his 10th 100-yard game and set a new career-highs in yards (155) and receptions (11) vs. Jacksonville 12/29/13.

 

With 10 100-yard games in his first two seasons, Hilton set the best pace in franchise history for the most such efforts in that span (10, Hilton; 3, Brooks; 3, Anthony Gonzalez; 3, Rison; 3, Reggie Wayne; 3, Terrence Wilkins).

 

Hilton’s 10 100-yard games rank among NFL leaders since 2012 (18, Calvin Johnson; 13, Brandon Marshall; 13, Demaryius Thomas; 12, Andre Johnson; 11, A.J. Green).

 

Hilton’s 12 TD receptions have covered eight, nine, 10, 14, 29, 36, 40, 43, 58, 61, 70 and 73 yards (451 total) for an average of 37.6 per TD reception.  His 75-yard TD punt return brings his career average per touchdown (526 yards) to 40.5 yards.

 

With 132 receptions, Hilton has the second-most receptions by a Colt in his first two career seasons (137, Marvin Harrison), while his 1,944 yards are the most ever (1,853, Bill Brooks).

 

Since 2012, Hilton (5) ranks only behind A.J. Green (7) and Adrian Peterson (6) for most touchdowns 50 yards or longer.

 

Hilton’s 12 TD receptions in his first two years rank among the best achieved in that span in Colts history (15, Collie; 14, Harrison; 12, Hilton).

 

Hilton was the 13th receiver taken in the 2012 draft.  There were four selected in the first round, five in the second and three in the third before he was taken with the 92nd choice. 

 

Against Buffalo on 11/25/12, Hilton scored on a 75-yard punt return and an eight-yard reception to become the first Colts player to record such scores in the same game in franchise history. 

 

Against Kansas City 1/4/14 in the Wild Card Playoffs, Hilton had 13 receptions for 224 yards and two touchdowns (10, 64 yards).  The receptions and yards broke the club’s playoff marks held by Raymond Berry (12 receptions at N.Y. Giants, 12/28/58) and Reggie Wayne (221 yards vs. Denver, 1/9/05).

 

Cornerback Darius Butler (two interceptions/one fumble recovered) had three takeaways at Jacksonville on 11/8/12, one shy of the Indianapolis era club record for the most by a player in a game (4, Eugene Daniel, 3 interceptions/1 fumble recovered vs. Green Bay 10/27/85; 3, Leonard Coleman, 3 ints. vs. New Orleans 10/12/86; 3, Mike Prior, 3 ints. vs. Phoenix 12/20/92).

 

Butler had a 41t interception return at Jacksonville 9/29/13 to move among the club leaders in career scoring interception returns (5, Jerry Logan; 4, Bobby Boyd; 3, Milt Davis; 3, Andy Nelson; 3, Ray Buchanan; 3, Eugene Daniel, 3, Jason Belser; 3, Kelvin Hayden).  Butler had two interceptions vs. Houston 12/15/13.

 

Butler’s eight interceptions since 2012 rank behind only Richard Sherman (16, Seattle), Tim Jennings (13, Chicago), Patrick Peterson (10, Arizona) and Jairus Byrd (9, Buffalo).

 

Linebacker Robert Mathis (111.0) had an eight-game sack streak end at New England on 11/18/12.  It tied his personal-best.  In 2005, he set an NFL record with sacks in eight consecutive games to start a season.  He opened 2013 with sacks in the first five games. 

 

Mathis has 27 career multiple-sack games, including three three-plus sack games.  Mathis has five of the 18 double-digit sack seasons in club history.

 

Mathis had a four-game streak with multiple sacks 9/15/13 vs. Miami (2.0), 9/22/13 at San Francisco (1.5), 9/29/13 at Jacksonville (3.0) and 10/6/13 vs. Seattle (2.0).  He had 2.0 sacks vs. Denver 10/20/13, vs. St. Louis 11/10/13 and vs. Jacksonville 12/29/13.  Mathis was named AFC Defensive Player-of-the-Month for October with 11 tackles, 4.0 sacks, two forced fumbles and one pass defensed.  Mathis also won the honor in September 2010.

 

Mathis has become 30th NFL player with 100 career sacks.  Mathis has sacked 54 different quarterbacks, plus one option pass (Pacman Jones) for a total of 55 players.  He has 78.5 against AFC teams and 32.5 against NFC teams.

 

Mathis has sacks in 85-of-163 career games and in 56-of-99 career starts.  Mathis has sacks against all 31 teams.

 

Mathis has sacks in 85 games, the most in Colts history (81, Dwight Freeney; 38, Duane Bickett; 38, Donnell Thompson).

 

Mathis has 27 career multiple-sack games, first in Colts history (25, Freeney; 10, Bickett; 10, Chad Bratzke).

 

Mathis had seven multiple-sack games in 2013, the best seasonal Colts total (7, Mathis, 2013; 5, Bratzke, 1999; 5, Freeney, 2004).

 

With 11.5 sacks in the first seven games of 2013, Mathis set a club record for the fastest start to that sack total (Freeney reached 11.5 in 13 games in 2004 and 2009 and in 16 games in 2002; Chad Bratzke reached it in 14 games in 1999; Johnie Cooks reached it in 16 games in 1984; Mathis reached it in 12 games in 2005 and 13 games in 2008).

He reached 13.5 in nine games, among the fastest paces in NFL history.  Most sacks in league history through nine games:  16.5, Mark Gastineau, NYJ, 1984; 15.0, Michael Strahan, NYG, 2001; 15.0, Derrick Thomas, KC, 1990; 13.5, Mathis; 13.5, Jared Allen, Min, 2011).

 

With a sack-strip vs. Houston 12/15/13, Mathis set franchise marks for career (108.0) and seasonal (16.5) sacks, besting Dwight Freeney.  The best seasonal sack totals in franchise history are 19.5 by Robert Mathis in 2013, 16.0 by Dwight Freeney in 2004, 13.5 by Freeney in 2009, 13.0 by Freeney in 2002 and 12.0 by Chad Bratzke in 1999.

 

Mathis has 43 career sack-strips and is the NFL record-holder in that category since sacks became official in 1982 (39, Jason Taylor).

 

Mathis was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Month for December, marking the fourth time Mathis has earned the honor and the second time this season (October).  Mathis had 19 tackles, five sacks and four forced fumbles as the Colts went 4-1.  Against Tennessee (12/1) had a sack-strip to set a franchise record for most games with a sack (82). Against Houston (12/15), had a strip-sack to set the franchise career and seasonal records.  Last Sunday he reached 19.5 seasonal sacks to win the NFL title, the second Colt ever to gain the honor. 

 

His sack total ranks 20th in NFL history, fifth among active players and he owns the NFL record with 43 strip-sacks. 

 

Mathis is the first Colts player to earn multiple AFC Player of the Month honors in a single season since kicker Mike Vanderjagt won the award in three consecutive months in 2003 (October-December).

 

Mathis won the Deacon Jones Award given to the NFL’s sack champion.  The award was created in 2013. 

 

He also was named to a sixth consecutive Pro Bowl.  Mathis’ six straight nominations rank behind Gino Marchetti (11), Peyton Manning (9), John Unitas (8), Jim Parker (8), Marvin Harrison (8) and alongside Chris Hinton (6) for the most in Colts history.  Six overall choices for Mathis rank behind Marchetti and Manning (11), Unitas (10), Parker and Harrison (8), Lenny Moore and Freeney (7) and alongside Raymond Berry, Chris Hinton and Reggie Wayne.

 

Mathis also was named First-Team NFL All-Pro by Associated Press.

 

Mathis had a third-quarter strip-sack against Alex Smith vs. Kansas City in the Wild Card Playoffs 1/4/14 to help club recover from 38-10 deficit for 45-44 victory.  Sack came with Colts trailing, 38-17, and set up a TD drive.

 

In 2012, Pat McAfee (73-47.9, 40.3 net) set the club seasonal marks for gross and net average.  McAfee has set the gross mark in each of the last two seasons (46.6, 2011).  In setting the mark last year, he snapped the previous seasonal record of Rohn Stark (45.9, 1985).  McAfee’s net average bested Stark’s previous record, and his 2011 had ranked second (39.3, Stark, 1992; 39.2, McAfee, 2011).  McAfee had 26 punts inside the 20, tying Hunter Smith’s seasonal record (26, 2002).

 

McAfee set a club record 10/20/13 vs. Denver with six punts inside the 20.  He set a franchise seasonal-best 27 kicks inside the 20 in 2013.

 

There are 14 players in franchise history, nine in the Indianapolis era, to participate in at least 100 regular-season victories:  141 games, QB-Peyton Manning; 132, QB-John Unitas; 132, C-Jeff Saturday; 132, WR-Reggie Wayne; 127, TE-Justin Snow; 118, WR-Marvin Harrison; 116, LB-Robert Mathis; 114, P-Hunter Smith; 112, DE-Dwight Freeney; 109, P-David Lee; 108, OT-Ryan Diem; 107, LB-Don Shinnick; 106, DE-Ordell Braase; 105, C/LB-Dick Szymanski.
