Hard times have fallen upon the Indianapolis Colts. With Peyton Manning running the offense, a trip to the playoffs was a foregone conclusion. Some might argue that it even brought a bit of complacency to the organization. Talk of Manning missing the season swirl, and the Colts head into week two underdogs to the Cleveland Browns.
Cleveland lost to the Bengals last week, even after Cincinnati's rookie quarterback, Andy Dalton, left with an injury after the first half. Rookie head coach Pat Shurmur will most likely lean on Peyton Hillis this week against a Colts defense that gave Ben Tate 116 rushing yards and a touchdown last week.
