Complete list of opponents for the Indianapolis Colts in 2022

The Indianapolis Colts are trying to get into the playoffs this season, but we take a preliminary look at the teams they will play next season. We already have an early look at their 2022 opponents.

The Indianapolis Colts saw the AFC South slip away this season, but with one game left of the NFL’s first 18-week regular season, they still have a chance for the playoffs. With a 10-6 record they will make the playoffs as the No. 6 seed if they can win their final game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. They haven’t won in Jacksonville since 2014 so there is still work to be done for them this year.

Looking ahead to the offseason though, the Colts need to see what they want to do under center. They traded for Carson Wentz, and he has been fine but their offense largely relies on the legs of Jonathan Taylor. They really need a dominant wide receiver either through the draft or free agency. Either that or a tight end that can help take some pressure off both Wentz and Taylor. The Colts also had a solid defensive front and could use another corner to help boost their defensive prowess.
