Formerly of the AFC East, the Colts moved to AFC South in 2002 when the league realigned after expanding to 32 teams. It is easy to say the Colts have enjoyed the most success of all AFC South teams, in fact it may be true to claim they have dominated the division since its 2002 creation. The Colts won the AFC South in consecutive years from 2003 through to 2007 and again in 2009, 2010, 2013, and 2014. They missed out on a 10th division title in 2015 by one game to the Houston Texans.
Most of the Colts’ success was during the Peyton Manning era. The star quarterback played for the Colts from 1998 to 2011, and his number 18 jersey has since been retired in his honor.
Manning passed the mantel to Andrew Luck, who enjoyed immediate success, particularly in 2014, but injury ravaged his 2015 season, and he only managed to play seven games, which is why the Colts ended with an 8-8 record, and the second-worst offence in all the AFC.
Luck is explosive and can put up some staggering numbers. But that doesn't translate to sustained success in the NFL. You need a strong defense for that, something the Colts are lacking.

How To Make Money Betting On Indianapolis Colts
It's the same old story in Indianapolis lately. The Colts, led by Luck, have a dynamic offense which can put up point in bundles. They have the ability to stretch defenses at will. Only, however, if Luck stays healthy. The offensive line has trouble protecting sufficiently their franchise quaterback. That has to change if the Colts are going to climb back to the top of the AFC South pack.
In addition, the Colts are not helped by their sub-par defensive unit. This franchise needs to focus on improving a porous defense before they can set their sights on sustained success.
