Colts looking for first road win

INDIANAPOLIS —

The Indianapolis Colts are 0-1 away from Lucas Oil Stadium this season, losing 44-21 to the Chicago Bears in the team's regular-season opener. Interim coach/offensive coordinator Bruce Arians admits to being curious about how the Colts to respond in Sunday's road game with the New York Jets.

 
"There's no doubt. That was a big focus in our [team] meeting [Wednesday], how we're going to handle the road business trip. From the travel part of it, to the game part of it, to the crowd noise part of it," Arians said earlier this week.
 
"We didn't handle it extremely well in the second half against Chicago, although we had very few pre-snap penalties and did a pretty good job with our silent count and our snap count. Defensively, they’ll probably be glad to be able to talk to each other with the crowd noise on the other side of the ball. It swings to offense this week and we’re the ones that have to handle it. So we’ll focus on it all week."
 
Whatever happens in New York, the veteran Colts assistant coach says that the team's relative youth won't be a factor.
 
"Pretty soon we’re not going to be young anymore. [Rookie wide receiver] T.Y. [Hilton] got 73 snaps in [last week's game with Green Bay]. I don’t consider [rookie quarterback] Andrew [Luck] young anymore," Arians voiced.
 
"When you play these guys long enough, going into this week the youth part of it can’t be used as an excuse anymore. They’ve been down that road. We’ll give them one more test on the road in a big ball game for both teams.”
 
As impressive as the Colts' passing game looked in the win over the Packers, finding that right balance with the running game continues to be somewhat elusive.
