That's not true. There is no guarantee the Colts would have won that game. The Jets also beat the Chargers, Patriots and Colts during the playoffs, all on the road, and no one would have gave them a fighting chance heading into those postseason playoff games. We still won. There is no guarantee the Colts would have beat the Jets during that night. The score was also very close before Indy rested their starters.
