Indy defense has done enough

11/22/2009

BALTIMORE -- In training camp in 2008, I remember doing a post about whether the Colts could ever be known as a defensive team.

The answer was, because of their offensive firepower and star power, no.

This afternoon, it feels like a defensive football team.

They just made a big goal-line stand that forced the Ravens to try a field goal for the sixth time today. There has been little open deep for the strong-armed Joe Flacco, who’s checked down often even when he’s had great protection.

Despite the Colts' lack of sacks or turnovers, they’ve played good defense.

Certainly good enough defense for an Indianapolis win.

Now it’s time for the offense to do its thing.
