INDIANAPOLIS COLTS HAVE THEIR HOPES HIGH ON NO. 1 OVERALL DRAFT PICK
Thu, 22 Dec 2011 07:58 AM EST

The suddenly soaring Indianapolis Colts are certain to have the No. 1 overall draft pick should they lose their last game of the season.

The Colts started 0-13 but their second straight win was a stunner, 19-16 over the AFC South champion Houston Texans on Thursday.

Still, if Indianapolis loses at Jacksonville on Jan. 1, they would finish with at least a slice of the league’s worst record at 2-14 and have the top pick in the draft by reason of strength-of-schedule tiebreaker. Odds

Both St. Louis and Minnesota are 2-12 heading into Saturday’s games, but the Colts’ .547 strength-of-schedule percentage is going to only worsen after playing the 4-10 Jaguars. The Rams ‘ % is .587 and the Vikings ‘ .587.

If the Colts beat Jacksonville and the Rams and Vikings lose their last 2, the Colts would not get the top pick. If the Colts beat the Jags and St. Louis and Minnesota also finish 3-13, the No. One pick would go to the Colts.

Minnesota has games left at Washington (5-9) and at home against Chicago (7-7), and St. Louis finishes at Pittsburgh (10-4) and at home against San Francisco (11-3). Scores
