Indianapolis Colts

The Colts turned in a 10-6 record last season that saw them finish 2nd in the AFC South and subsequently qualify for a Wild Card berth. Although they were able to beat the Texans 21-7 in the first round of the playoffs, the Colts were promptly eliminated by the Chiefs 13-31 in the divisional round. Notwithstanding that loss, the season as a whole was a vast improvement from the previous 4-12 record Indy had delivered. Now it’s up to the Colts to build on their most recent success and find a way to make back-to-back playoff appearances. All in all Frank Reich’s debut season as head coach was a great success and it’ll be up to him to build on it.

Players to Watch: Andrew Luck (4,593 passing yards, 39 TD, 15 INT), Marlon Mack (908 rushing yards, 9 TD, 1 F), and TY Hilton (1,270 receiving yards, 6 TD, 76 REC).   

Los Angeles Chargers

The Chargers finished last year’s action with a 12-4 season that still saw them finish 2nd in the AFC West. Despite having the same record as the Chiefs, Kansas City ended up winning the tie-breakers to steal the division out from under LA. This was undoubtedly a step up from the 9-7 record the team had delivered in 2017. Heading into next year’s season, Chargers fans are expecting a highly successful season. LA will certainly have their work cut out for them in the AFC West considering just how tough that division is.

Players to Watch: Philip Rivers (4,308 passing yards, 32 TD, 12 INT), Melvin Gordon (885 rushing yards, 10 TD, 0 F), and Keenan Allen (1,196 receiving yards, 6 TD, 97 REC).
