After watching the Week 4 matchups, Scouts Inc. shares its 10 key observations:

1. The Colts' running game is back: RB Donald Brown has matured very quickly and the Indianapolis Colts now have a formidable running game once again. Brown doesn't deserve all the credit, but he is quite impressive and is very well-rounded for such a young back. He began the season in somewhat of a closer role, but Brown did damage early against Seattle. Indianapolis also trusts him enough to use him in its two-minute offense. Joseph Addai remains formidable as well and is a real weapon out of the backfield. Another note on this dominant offense: It looks like WR Austin Collie is a contributor as well, and it seems QB Peyton Manning, who is playing better than ever, trusts the rookie.
