Good, bad and ugly from Colts season

A look back at the best and worst of the Indianapolis Colts 2013 season:

Best Game: Somehow the Colts rallied from a 28-point second-half deficit to beat Kansas City 45-44 for the second-greatest comeback in postseason history.

Worst Game: In a season with too many inexplicable double-digit losses, nothing was worse than the 38-8 loss to St. Louis at home.

Best Play: Hard to top the perfect 64-yard TD pass from Andrew Luck to T.Y. Hilton late against Kansas City to finish that seemingly implausible playoff comeback. Hilton was wide open down the middle and Luck hit him in stride.

Worst Play: When Rams punt returner Tavon Austin picked up a bouncing ball at his own 2-yard line and sprinted down the sidelines for a 98-yard TD return. Many of the Colts stopped, thinking the play was over.

Biggest Surprise: The emergence of Donald Brown. He had shown glimpses of living up to his first-round draft status but played well enough this season to beat out Trent Richardson for the starting job and perhaps earn a new deal from Indianapolis.

Biggest Disappointment: Losing Reggie Wayne late in a win over Denver. It not only mitigated the celebration of beating Peyton Manning and the Broncos, it sent the Colts into six weeks of inconsistency.

What's Next: Figuring out who to re-sign and keeping enough room under the salary cap to keep plugging holes on defense, along the offensive line and at receiver.
