Colts' 2017 Schedule Released!

We knew the Colts' 2017 opponents and locations of the games, but we didn't know when they'd be playing everyone until the schedule was just released. Here's how it looks:

A couple of interesting notes:

- Their opponents' cumulative .424 winning percentage from last season makes this 2017 slate for the Colts the "easiest" schedule in the league. Indy will only face three playoff teams from a year ago: Houston, Pittsburgh, and Seattle. Take that with a grain of salt, though, as things often change drastically year to year.

- With their Week 1 trip to visit the Rams, the Colts will play their first regular season game in Los Angeles since 1991. That was a game against the then-L.A. Raiders. Indy's last game against the Rams in the City of Angels was way back in 1975.

- For the second-straight year, a former Colts head coach will come back to Indianapolis. Jim Caldwell returned with the Lions in the season-opener in 2016, and Bruce Arians, who served on an interim basis in 2012 - will return with Arizona.

- Speaking of returns, the Colts will get another shot at Pittsburgh in Indy. They fell to the Steelers without Andrew Luck last Thanksgiving, and are just 3-14 against Pittsburgh since moving here in 1984.

- This will be the Colts' first trip to Seattle since the 2005 season. The 12-year layoff is the longest current streak that the Colts have gone without playing in an opposing venue.

- The Colts will get one primetime game on each night - a Monday Night game against Tennessee (Week 12), a Sunday night games against Seattle (Week 4), and a Thursday night tilt with Denver (Week 15)
