New England Patriots

By Matt Dolloff,

The Indianapolis Colts may be one of the hottest teams in the league entering the AFC Divisional Playoffs. But they’re still the Colts, and they are staying true to their banner-happy selves.

The official Twitter account for Lucas Oil Stadium posted a photo of a new flag outside the venue on Thursday, and it’s arguably a new low for the team that infamously hung an “AFC Finalist” banner after the 2014 season. This time, they’re hanging a “1-0” flag to honor their otherwise-noble motto that’s based on taking it one game at a time. So perhaps if the Colts beat the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday, they’ll switch it to “2-0”, and so on.

There isn’t much wrong with the move, in and of itself. But it’s just the most Colts move possible. New England continues to laugh at them for moves like this.

But hey, if they end up beating the Chiefs and the Patriots beat the Chargers, they’ll have another shot at raising a second finalist banner.
