Defense Making This Colts Team One that Can Be Super


While the Colts offense is getting a lot of kudos for Sunday’s 35-3 trouncing of the awful Bengals, let’s remember how impressive this Indy defense has played the last two weeks. Yes, it’s been against subpar teams in the Browns and Bengals, but they have not allowed a TD in two games, and Sunday Kelvin Hayden took a pick to the house, the second straight week the D has scored.

“We did a great job game planning, and we knew their quarterback would get rattled if we got some pressure,” Hayden said. “I just tried to take advantage of it.” Hayden picked off two passes, and all day they made sure that whoever was at QB for the Bengals didn’t have much in the way of opportunity to throw or scramble.

“Those close games are good for morale. They build character,” Colts defensive end Robert Mathis said. “But you also want to win like this, everybody having fun and you just pin your ears back and go.” Mathis along with Dwight Freeney are making this Colts team one that no one wants to play in the playoffs.

Now it the time for this club to keep building on this current momentum. Even though they are not the South champs, have the feel of a team that can go a long way in January, and that’s all that you can ask for.
