The Colts picked up their fourth win of the season with a 34-28 victory over the previously-unbeaten Seattle Seahawks last night despite trailing by five points going into the final quarter.
The victory was quarterback Andrew Luck's ninth fourth-quarter comeback win in 21 NFL games, and Pagano believes that no team is better equipped to edge close matches than his side.
"This is the most resilient team that I've ever been around. They've got more grit than anybody, any team I've been around," Pagano told The AP.
"I don't think, anybody's built better to win these close games, especially down the stretch, especially in the fourth quarter than this team."
The Colts currently sit at the top of the AFC South in sole control of the division for the first time since Peyton Manning left the franchise.
