Prior to Week 15, the last time the Indianapolis Colts were on the field was in Week 13 against the Dallas Cowboys.
In that game, Indy had given up 33 points in the fourth quarter and lost 54-19.
It was embarrassing. To make matters worse, it was on Sunday Night Football, so the entire NFL world witnessed the embarrassment.
It was a new low in a season with many low points for the Colts, and everyone foolishly assumed it couldn’t get worse. It didn’t take long for Indianapolis to prove everyone wrong.
After a Week 14 bye, Indianapolis jumped right back into a nationally televised game against the Minnesota Vikings.
The Colts started the first half on fire, jumping out to a 33-0 lead. Everything was clicking for Indy.
There was a blocked punt for a touchdown, a pick-six, Indy forced a fumble, everything. Indianapolis was just flat-out dominating the Vikings.
This led to social media clowning Minnesota. Everyone was calling Minnesota frauds, and the Vikings became the butt of the league’s jokes.
With a 33-point lead at the half, in what should’ve been an easy upset victory, turned into the Colts blowing the largest lead in NFL history.
