This is the second stat based post to make the same claim

This game, I believe, came down to one stat, and one stat only:  Average Starting Position.  For the 2nd year in a row, the Colts lost in the playoffs with an absolutely awful Starting Position.  In fact, they were the two worst playoff games since 2001, and Sunday was the 7th worst game, Regular Season or Playoffs, since 2001.  Just imagine if the Colts started 10 yards better, on average, on each drive.  Then imagine they going, on average, 54 yards / drive.  It’s incredibly frustrating to think about.
