The Colts (11-5) will travel to the East Coast to take on the Baltimore Ravens (10-6) on Sunday in an AFC Wild Card Playoff Game. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. EST.
The Colts earned the No. 5 seed in the AFC after posting a nine-win improvement from last season. The turnaround is tied for the third largest in NFL history.
The Colts and Ravens will matchup in the postseason for the third time. The Colts have won the two previous games, one at home and one on the road. In the last game between these two teams, Indianapolis took down Baltimore, 20-3, in the AFC Divisional round of the playoffs on January 16, 2010 at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Last week, Indianapolis closed the regular season by defeating the Houston Texans, 28-16, and remained undefeated at home against Houston. RB-Deji Karim provided a spark for the team, returning a kickoff 101 yards for a touchdown to give the Colts a lead they would keep for the remainder of the game. WR-T.Y. Hilton recorded his fifth 100-yard receiving game, a Colts rookie record, and added a 70-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter. The reception was the longest of the year for the Colts.
The Ravens are coming off a 23-17 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. With the AFC North crown already locked up, Baltimore had several starters inactive for the game, including Bernard Pollard, Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs, Anquan Boldin and Haloti Ngata.
