Indianapolis Colts: The Colts gave up 41 points in last year's playoff loss to the New York Jets, and the talk was that the defense would have to drastically improve if they wanted to advance in the postseason. The same questions resurfaced Sunday when they gave up 31 points to the Jets on only 34 plays, but coach Tony Dungy feels better about the state of his D after watching video of the game. He saw the Colts hold the Jets to 10 points during the first half and scoreless during the fourth quarter. "It's just the process of about six plays in the third quarter that ruined the whole game," Dungy told the Indianapolis Star. "I thought I'd really be upset with the defense, but it was really just some dumb plays that we can get corrected."
