Colts playoff push nears end
The Indianapolis Colts’ improbable run continued Sunday with a 27-23 victory against the Tennessee Titans at Lucas Oil Stadium.
The game hewed close to a familiar script on many themes. Indianapolis improved to 8-1 in games decided by one score or less, and it was the seventh straight home game to come down to the final drive.
Colts win a tale of two halves
Indianapolis Colts interim coach/offensive coordinator Bruce Arians referred to Sunday's 27-23 come-from-behind win over the Tennessee Titans as a tale of two halves.
He wasn't too far wrong.
Colts fighting through injuries
Injuries, which have been a continuing issue for the Indianapolis Colts this season, will keep three veteran off the field Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Safety Tom Zbikowski (knee) and running back Donald Brown (ankle) had already been ruled out of this week's AFC South clash with Tennessee (4-8). Offensive guard Joe Reitz (head) joined that group Friday.
Luck is clear Offensive Rookie of the Year
Andrew Luck is the Offensive Rookie of the Year, and it’s not even close. The Colts rookie quarterback has one viable receiver to depend on along with a very shaky defense and inconsistent running game, and yet has amazed all season long.
Colts not thinking about playoffs
The same focus that has gotten the Indianapolis Colts to its current position -- 8-4 overall and in the drivers seat for one of two AFC wild-card playoff berths -- was in evidence Monday as interim coach/offensive coordinator Bruce Arians reviewed the team's 35-33 come-from-behind win over Detroit.
Big day for Colts rookies
Andrew Luck set another rookie record on Sunday.
With his eighth win of the season, he surpassed St. Louis’ Sam Bradford for the most victories by a quarterback taken No. 1 overall in his debut season since 1970.
Colts perform miracle in Motor City
Call it a shock, a surprise, a stunner or any other word for astonishment that springs to mind.
What the Indianapolis Colts accomplished Sunday afternoon at Ford Field was nothing short of a miracle in the Motor City.
New faces on defense for Colts
The Indianapolis Colts will have a few new faces in the starting defensive lineup when they arrive Sunday at Detroit's Ford Field.
Defensive tackle Fili Moala suffered a season-ending knee injury in last week's 20-13 home-field win over Buffalo. Moala was placed on injured reserve on Tuesday. Strong safety Tom Zbikowski, meanwhile, will remain in Indianapolis as he nurses a right knee injury that he also incurred against the Bills a week ago.
For Colts, perception is everything
When it comes to today's interconference matchup between the Indianapolis Colts and the Detroit Lions (1 p.m., CBS Sports), perception is everything.
Indianapolis brings a 7-4 record into the game, with the Colts winners of six of their last six games and prime contenders for one of the two available AFC playoff wild-card berths. The Lions, meanwhile, are 4-7 and have lost their last three games. Their hopes of making a post-season run are starting to fade.
Arians knows where his loyalties lie
As much as Bruce Arians is enjoying leading the Indianapolis Colts as the team’s interim coach, he has made it clear where his loyalties lie.
Arians, who has led the Colts to a 7-4 record heading into Sunday’s game at Detroit, continues to give all credit for the team’s unexpected run of success this season to his boss, coach Chuck Pagano.
