The Colts are about to embark on a journey NFL teams have only taken 11 times since 2000, and the percentages suggest when they are done the results won’t be favorable.
They play Monday night in Miami, then Sunday night in Arizona. The schedule of back-to-back road prime-time games is an uncommon one, but not so much for the Colts.
Forgive the Colts if they feel like they get more than their fair share of such things. They drew similar assignments in 2002 and 2003. Only one other team, the Chiefs, has done it twice. Perhaps the Colts are due for a split, considering they won both in 2003 and lost both in 2002.
Here’s a look at how the scenario has unfolded the previous 11 times in this decade, with thanks to Keith Hawkins of ESPN Stats and Information.
