Football Outsiders calls the 1992 Colts "possibly the luckiest team in NFL history," due to ranking the Colts as the second worst team in 1992, statistically. "The Colts finished 9–7 even though opponents outscored them 302–216," Football Outsiders continued. "They were 4–7 after losing 30–14 to Pittsburgh on November 22. Then they finished the year with a five-game winning streak – but they won those games by an average of four points. ... It didn't hurt that the Colts recovered 59 percent of fumbles that season and had a below-average schedule."
The Colts' 1,102 rushing yards is the lowest for any team in a single season in the 1990s.
