The Colts have been put on red alert this week.
After scoring just two touchdowns and 26 total points in their first two games, coaches have spent this week’s practices emphasizing finishing drives with touchdowns, not field goals.
That was the problem in last week’s 27-19 loss against Cleveland. The Colts (0-2) made it inside the Cleveland 20 three times, but scored only one TD — with 24 seconds left in the game.
In previous years, the Colts have been one of the NFL’s best red-zone teams. Of course, that was with Peyton Manning running the show. Without him, the Colts must come up with new ways to execute near the goal line.
