The fans could sense it and the Colts could feel it.
“You walk in there and you could just feel something was just magic in the air,” said Colts fan Eric Cramer of Sunday's comeback win against Green Bay.
The head of ticket sales says he’s been part of some amazing moments with the Colts, but this is different.
“There was a real shared spirit you could feel,” said Colts Vice President of Ticket Operations Larry Hall. “A real energy in the building no question.”
Something was certainly going on. Coach Chuck Pagano was in trouble fighting cancer and you could slowly feel the momentum build.
By Friday of last week, the city was Chuckstrong, fighting with their coach. Colts interim head coach Bruce Arians told the team that the week was not going to be about snot bubble and tears.
He said it was about beating the Green Bay Packers for Coach Pags.
Sports psychologist Rob Bell said a defining moment like this can change a season because players think about how lucky they are to play the game.
“What I think they tapped into was perspective,” said Bell. “It happens when we play for something greater than ourselves, a coach, and a team.
“We're so grateful we are able to play we have to put forth a 100-percent effort on every single play because we don't know when our last play or last game is really gonna be,” said Bell.
Now almost overnight there's talk of a winning season.
“In the end, they all just got together and acted as a team and they did it,” said Colts fan Leslie Tandy.
