Colts live up to early promises with early win


Indianapolis has already accomplished one goal: Winning early. Now they can focus on all the other stuff they hope to do.

With Sunday's victory over Minnesota, the Colts will not have to spend weeks or months answering questions about winless seasons or the need to get the No. 1 draft pick like they did last year.

Coach Chuck Pagano has promised thing would be different this year and they are.

Indy has won all three of its home games this season - including both preseason games - and three straight regular season home games dating to last December. With a win this weekend against Jacksonville, the Colts (1-1) would match last season's victory total and prove that this does not have to be just a rebuilding season.
