NFL 2014: Colts capsule

Posted on Aug. 24, 2014 at 12:00 a.m. | Updated on Aug. 24, 2014 at 12:04 p.m.

INDIANAPOLIS COLTS (12-6)

New faces: S Mike Adams, LB D’Qwell Jackson, DL Arthur Jones, OL Lance Louis, OL Jack Mewhort, WR Hakeem Nicks.

Key losses: LB Pat Angerer, RB Vick Ballard, S Antoine Bethea, RB Donald Brown, OL Mike McGlynn, C Samson Satele, OG Donald Thomas.

Strengths: QB, WR, TE.

Weaknesses: OL, RB, S.

What’s New: With tight end Dwayne Allen back, Colts can create mismatches for opponents, and they’ll make it even tougher by going no-huddle more often. Defensively, Indy appears vastly improved at linebacker and is finding ways to pressure opposing quarterbacks even without reigning NFL sacks champion Robert Mathis playing in preseason.

Expectations: After making playoffs in 2012, winning AFC South and a wild-card round playoff game last year, Indy anticipates taking next step — challenging Denver and New England for AFC supremacy. Having league’s easiest schedule certainly helps. But coach Chuck Pagano has never minced words about his goal: He wants Super Bowl title.
