The 2015 Indianapolis Colts season was the franchise's 63rd season in the National Football League and the 32nd in Indianapolis. It was also the fourth season under the trio of head coach Chuck Pagano, general manager Ryan Grigson and quarterback Andrew Luck. The Colts entered the 2015 season as the defending AFC South champions after compiling an 11–5 record before falling to the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game.

After a week 8 loss to the Carolina Panthers, the Colts fired offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton and elevated associate head coach Rob Chudzinski to replace him.[1] The Colts failed to improve from their 3 consecutive 11–5 records and finished the season at 8–8 and lost the division to the Houston Texans and failed to make the playoffs for the first time since 2011 and only the 4th time since 1998. Also this was their first time to lose to the Houston Texans at home since the Texans broke into the NFL in 2002.

Top tacklers

This game was notorious for a terrible playcall made by Colts' coach, Chuck Pagano. With the Colts trailing 27-21 late in the 3rd quarter, Pagano opted to go for it using special teams on 4th and 3 on the Colts' 37 yard line. However, a bizarre formation resulted in a Patriots sack, Colts turnover, and a flag for illegal formation. The Patriots easily scored a touchdown on the next drive and went on to win the game by 7 points, 34-27. The playcall was universally criticized and was considered by many to be the worst play in NFL history.[47]
