Colts not thinking about playoffs


INDIANAPOLIS — After getting Monday and Tuesday off, the Colts will re-assemble Wednesday to begin preparations for this week's home game with AFC South rival Tennessee.

“Again, a big, big division game. [Running back] Chris Johnson, you always start right there stopping him. We did not do a good job of protecting the quarterback down there. I think [left offensive tackle] Anthony Castonzo is playing a lot better right now. It’s probably as good as I’ve had [an offensive] tackle play in a long time. He’ll draw a tough assignment in Kamerion Wimbley," Arians said.

"It’s the same thing. We’ve got to run the football and make our chunk plays. I think the key right now is we are playing so much better on special teams. But Tennessee is going to come in and we are going to get their best shot. We know that. A divisional game, rivalry type of game and we are going to need a great crowd. Another playoff game atmosphere and we’ll take it one game at a time.”

Playoffs? -- No need to think about the post-season just yet. Or any potential individual awards that may be coming Indianapolis' way at some point in the offseason.

“Whenever they tell us where we are going, then [we can] start breaking down the film," Arians said in response to a question about when would be the best time to start thinking about the playoffs.

"There’s way too much [time]. There’s some really good football teams behind us and we just have to take care of our own business and we will worry about all that (later) because a lot of the teams will play each other in these last few weeks. There’s plenty of time to worry about it.”
