Keep in mind that Indy was playing on the road against a team that's owned them under Bellicheck. Manning had never won a game against New England in their stadium under Bellicheck, and he still hasn't. That was and is a major monkey on his back coming into this game, and if you'd watch the post game interviews you'd see how much the loss hurt Manning and Harrison. These two guys are usually pretty mellow, and to see the way the loss affected them shows how important it was to them to win. Any offense that can run up and down the field on a New England defense like that is formidable. The game was ripe with mistakes by both teams, and that's to be expected from the first game of the season. When we face Indy they'll likely be hitting their stride, and not making the same mistakes as they did last night. Our defense will likely be gelling, and the rookies will be more familar with their responsibilities. It will be a good game, but to suggest that Indy's Offense isn't a concern or to say that they didn't have a good showing last night is laughable. The Cheifs had no defense last year, and that didn't stop them from crushing us. If the Chiefs and/or Colts get any semblance of defense this year they'll both be very tough teams to beat.
