5 games is way to early to be doing playoff pictures with wild card teams.
We can argue this, but I'm going to point the Bills and tell Magic to hold off on his hope.
I learned my lesson about 1/3 of the season w/ the Orioles way back. IIRC the Capitals had a rough start most of the year and then stormed into contention.
I would say the Hornets are a better example, but I digress. The point they are making is that it looks like the Colts could be a potential playoff team, and with 25% of the season done, that is not too early to predict playoff teams. We pick potential playoff teams all throughout the year. We change our points weekly.
You are right about the Bills last year, things can always change, but we can also point to The Bengals or the Texans at this point last year as well and see that they did make the playoffs. At this point in the season it is a real possibility the Colts could get hot. It's never too early to point at potential playoff teams.
