Last week: 9 (+1)

Record: 6-3

I’ve never seen anything like this ChuckStrong movement in the NFL. It’s spread from the team shaving their heads to citizens of the city of Indianapolis and the surrounding area shaving their heads to even one of the cheerleaders agreeing to shave her head if they can raise $10,000 for cancer research (ballsy girl). This thing has almost become on the level of Lance Armstrong and Jim Valvano. I wouldn’t want to bet against this bunch going forward. Practically speaking, they’re 2 games up on a playoff spot, having won 5 of their last 6 games, including 4 in a row. They have games against Tennessee, Buffalo, and Kansas City, and Houston might be resting starters week 17. Their other 3 games (@ New England, @ Detroit, @ Houston) aren’t impossible either.
