DeForest Buckner has had a huge impact since joining the Colts from the 49ers in the offseason

Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay believes his team is the most “complete” in the NFL as they appear to be trying to claim the AFC South Division title in the final two weeks of the regular season.

The Colts are 10-4 on the season, tied with the Tennessee Titans owning tiebreaker between the two teams to see them in pole position for the division at the moment.

But Irsay could not be happier with what he sees from his team, ahead of games for the Pittsburgh Steelers – live on the Sky Sports NFL Sunday at – and against the Jacksonville Jaguars to close the season.

“We are so excited. And we control the things we can control,” Irsay said NFL Network. “We could not check that we did not have a national video game at home this year, which was a disappointment.

“We could not control DeForest [Buckner] do not get the Pro Bowl. But we control the 60 minutes, and in the 60 minutes no one can take anything from us.

“It’s our time. We know when we go into the 60 minutes that this is how we have to define ourselves. And we take it one game at a time.

“But I have a special feeling about this team, I really do. I think it’s the most complete team in the league. I believe that.

“There are other teams and players in other positions that can be bigger, so to speak, but the three phases of the game – special teams, defense and offensive – and you put it all together, I really love this football team.

“And we’re doing things now in December that we could not do in September. I do not think we’re going to [Las Vegas] Raiders and beat them on the road like we did if it was September.

“We have two more to go and we’ll see. It’s so hard to be in [AFC] conference. You could be like the one-time New England that was 11-5 and did not reach the playoffs this year.

“The way to solve it for us would be to go 12-4, winning the next two.”

Irsay elaborated on Buckner and the defensive tackle’s omission from the Pro Bowl team in 2021 and deepened his surprise at learning that his precious offseason acquisition did not earn the credit.

Buckner has had a significant impact on the Colts’ defense since arriving via a trade from the San Francisco 49ers, recording 52 tackles, 7.5 sacks, eight tackles for losses and 24 QB hits – and his absence in a major loss to Tennessee this week. 12 made his value even more noticeable.

“I thought it was April, not Christmas for April Fool’s,” Irsay said. “We follow DeForest. He’s our T-Rex.

“Believe me, when you’re in the jaw and you see a guy like that next to you, you want ‘it’s cool, this game’s going to be ok.

“Seeing someone 300 pounds moving like a little linebacker or safety, it’s remarkable; hopefully he will do what Darius does [Leonard] did and did not make the Pro Bowl, but made the All-Pro because I can not imagine he did not make the All-Pro. “
