Colts have won eight of last nine meetings
The Indianapolis Colts may be a six-point road underdog but history is on their side. There is one simple way to stop the Colts…stop Andrew Luck, who had four touchdowns in week one of the season.
Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips looks to do just that with both DeMarcus Ware and Von Miller expected to get after Luck. If the pass rush can force Luck into mistakes, then the Broncos should walk away with the win against the Colts, who lost 39-35 despite a four TD game from Luck.
Chuck Pagano will have his squad ready.
“All 11 guys over there [concern me] and the guys they bring in, the backups that they have,” Pagano said Wednesday. “They’ve got a great front seven. We know that they can put a tremendous amount of pressure on your quarterback. We’ve got to do a great job in protection. They’re stingy against the run. The back end, the second level and the third level, they’ve got speed, athleticism and they’re very, very deep. Excellent on the outside at the two corner spots and the nickel spot. They fly around and they’re physical. They do a great job. Wade [Phillips] does a great job with that group. It’s by no chance that they’re ranked where they are and where they finished last year. They can hurt you in a lot of different ways from all levels so we have to be on point.”
