Colts look for consistency on the road

MONTGOMERY — The Indianapolis Colts will take a 7-4 record into Sunday’s road game in Detroit. Indianapolis is also the front-runner for one of the two available wild-card berths in the upcoming AFC playoffs.

That’s the good news.

The Colts, though, have struggled on the road this season, with three of the team’s four losses occurring away from the friendly confines of Lucas Oil Stadium.

While the Lions are 4-7 this season, interim coach/offensive coordinator Bruce Arians considers them a dangerous team with a lot of firepower on both sides of the ball.

“You just see unbelievable individual talent, especially in that defensive front, and at wide receiver and quarterback. They have a solid offensive line,” Arians previewed Monday.

“They’ve lost some very close games that I think has been the difference for them. We’ve won a couple of close ones. They’ve won a couple of close ones. Talent-wise, they are extremely talented.”

As for his own Colts squad, the veteran NFL assistant coach continues to preach patience. He doesn’t want the team to look too far into the future and, above all, don’t listen to all the talk about the playoffs. It’s way too early to entertain that kind of discussion, according to Arians.

“Just stay within the moment. Just stay within the process. It’s worked this far. Just because it’s December, the price of poker has gone up. But the process is still the game,” he said.

“Stay with it one play at a time, one day at a time and don’t get caught up in all that. The team philosophy is that we just keep winning and there’s going to be enough credit to go around for everybody.”


Moala out for the season -- Defensive tackle Fili Moala will most the remainder of the year after suffering an anterior cruciate ligament injury to his right knee Sunday. Moala was hurt as he got caught up in a crowd of players while running down field after safety Tom Zbikowski intercepted a Ryan Fitzpatrick pass.
