2020 NFL Power Rankings: Indianapolis Colts

Throughout the 2020 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the Indianapolis Colts rank in terms of average, best and worst:

Below you will find a Week 17 roundup for the Colts in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 10

Philip Rivers, QB: The Colts face key decisions with a number of players like T.Y. Hilton and Justin Houston. But their biggest offseason question is what to do at quarterback. Rivers has been fine (ranking 18th in QBR), but if the season ended today, the Colts would miss the playoffs. Rivers is 39. Will Indianapolis try to bring him back for another one-year run or go in a different direction?

CBS Sports -- Rank: 10

They gagged away a game against the Steelers. With that type of lead, coupled with that defense, that shouldn't happen.

USA Today -- Rank: 12

They're in legitimate danger of becoming third team to finish with 11 regular-season wins and fail to qualify for postseason.

ESPN -- Rank: 11

New Year's resolution: Find a left tackle

Anthony Castonzo has started all 144 games he has appeared in since entering the NFL in 2011. But he is now 32 years old, contemplated retirement last offseason, plans to take it season by season on his future and has missed three games this season due to injury. The Colts can't sit back and wait on Castonzo -- they need to find the next person tasked with protecting their quarterback's blind side. -- Mike Wells

NFL.com -- Rank: 11

Indianapolis could have taken control of the AFC South on Sunday. Instead, Frank Reich's team blew a 17-point lead to the Steelers and now finds itself in the position of needing outside help to reach the postseason. It was a killer turn of events for the Colts, who looked like an AFC superpower against Pittsburgh before everything fell apart in the second half. The collapse came on both sides of the ball: Ben Roethlisberger went up and down the field on Indy's D in the final two quarters, while Philip Rivers and the offense succumbed to constant pressure from Pittsburgh's front seven. Missing the playoffs would represent abject failure for this Colts team.
