Post-Game Coverage:

The Colts suffered their worst loss in the Peyton Manning era Sunday night to the San Diego Chargers. The Colts scored early, but the rest of the game was all San Diego. Manning was harassed all night resulting in four interceptions including two pick-sixes. In pre-game interviews, the Colts listed scoring early, winning on Special Teams, and containing the run as keys to beating the Chargers. How’d they do?

Inside The Huddle:

Pre-Game Objectives:

  1. Start fast, score early – The Colts took the opening kickoff and drove 78 yards for their first score. Mission accomplished (if the game ended there, we’d all be smiling this morning). Grade: A
  2. Win Special Teams battle – San Diego has one of the worst Special Teams in the league. Indy’s is worse. Poor field position all game, and I’m sorry, but Brandon James is not the answer. Grade: D
  3. Contain the run – San Diego rushed 34 times for 129 yards. That’s all they needed; their defense scored as many points as the Colts. Grade: C

Too high? Too low? What grades would you give them?

Pre-Game Coverage:

In Week 12 pre-game interviews, Coach Jim Caldwell, Peyton Manning, Antoine Bethea, Dwight Freeney, and other Colts players discuss what it will take to succeed in today’s contest against the San Diego Chargers.

To paraphrase:

  1. Start fast, score early
  2. Win the Special Teams battle
  3. Contain the run

We’ll find out this afternoon if they’re up to the task.
