(WISH) — The Indianapolis Colts fell to the New Orleans Saints 34-7 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Monday night, eliminating the Colts from AFC playoff contention.
The Colts officially entered desperation mode on Monday night in New Orleans. After a promising 5-2 start to the regular season, a loss to the Saints would eliminate Indianapolis from AFC playoff contention.
A major story line tied to the Colts free fall is the nagging calf injury hampering four-time pro-bowl wide receiver T.Y. Hilton. Hilton returned to action Monday against the Saints after missing five of the Colts previous six games.
To add insult to injury, at halftime Monday night, the Saints are set to honor the Super Bowl XLIV team that defeated the Colts in Miami.
