But Indianapolis, which advanced one round further in each of three preseason trips, were dismantled by the Patriots in the 2014 AFC title game - the "Deflategate" game - and haven't been back to the playoffs since.

Chuck Pagano's time as coach of the Indianapolis Colts came to an end on Sunday after their 22-13 victory against the Houston Texans. The team announced the move Sunday afternoon. "Throughout his tenure in Indianapolis, he impacted the lives of the players he coached, those who he worked with in the organization and Colts fans across the globe".

There have also been many mistakes made in acquiring talent during Pagano's tenure, which resulted in general manager Ryan Grigson being fired after last season. "We are thankful for Chuck's contributions to our franchise and community and we wish him, Tina and the entire Pagano family nothing but the best moving forward". They were without quarterback Andrew Luck for the entire 2017 season after he underwent surgery last January to fix a torn labrum that has bothered him since 2015.

Penn State wins Fiesta Bowl
Washington quarterback Jake Browning, making his final start as the Huskies' QB, was 18-28 for 175 yards and a touchdown. In the second quarter, with Penn State up 21-7 over Washington, everyone got the final highlight they were waiting for.

But the team failed to compile a winning record the past three seasons as they were hampered by multiple injuries to quarterback Andrew Luck. That included his debut, in 2012, when Pagano was diagnosed with leukemia and left the team for almost three months with offensive coordinator and eventual Coach of the Year Bruce Arians while undergoing treatment.

Pagano guided the Colts to a 56-46 overall record (including the postseason) since joining the team in 2012. Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy and Seahawks offensive line coach Tom Cable have been reported to be possible replacements for Pagano.

Philadelphia Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz is expected to interview with the New York Giants in the next week and reportedly has emerged as a favorite for the team's head-coaching opening.
