After making a nine-game improvement and reaching the playoffs with rookie quarterback Andrew Luck in charge, new offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton has installed a power-running game with double-tight end formations. Coach Chuck Pagano also got the pieces he wanted to make Indy's 3-4 defense look more like the defense he had in Baltimore.
The Ravens won last year's Super Bowl this way and Pagano figures he can replicate that success in Indy this year.
The Colts' revamped defense hasn't given up a touchdown in two preseason games, and the injury-depleted offense is still trying to get the ground game in sync.
