2014 | 11-5 | Lost AFC cham­pi­onship game

Chicago Tribune (Sunday) - - BEARS -

Pagano’s path: The Colts won the AFC South for the sec­ond straight year af­ter re­peat­ing their 6-0 record against di­vi­sion op­po­nents. Then they won two play­off games. But the Pa­tri­ots ended their sea­son again, ex­pos­ing the de­fense’s per­son­nel short­com­ings. Their D-line was bul­lied in the 45-7 de­feat. The Colts gave up 177 rush­ing yards — a beat­down sim­i­lar to the 2013 play­offs. “If you can’t dom­i­nate the line of scrimmage, you’re go­ing to have a long, hard day,” Pagano said af­ter­ward. With­out Mathis (Achilles in­jury), the Colts lacked a con­sis­tent pass rush.
