As much as Bruce Arians is enjoying leading the Indianapolis Colts as the team's interim coach, he has made it clear exactly where his loyalties lie. Arians, who has led the Colts to a 7-4 record heading into Sunday's game at Detroit, continues to give all credit for the team's unexpected run of success this season to his boss, coach Chuck Pagano. Indianapolis was expected to flounder in the wake of so many on-and-off-field changes. Yet the Colts find themselves in strong contention for an AFC wild card berth. Pagano has been away from the team, in terms of being an every-day presence, since Oct. 1 when he was diagnosed with a form of leukemia. He has been undergoing a series of chemotherapy treatments since then.The goal, according to Arians, is to have Pagano back on the sidelines for the Colts' Dec. 30 regular-season home finale with AFC South rival Houston. If that goal is met, Pagano will be back fully-in-charge of the team in time for a potential po...

It probably wasn’t meant a recruiting pitch, but Bruce Arians of the Indianapolis Colts went a little too far while discussing the talents of Ndamukong Suh.

Indianapolis Colts (7-4) at Detroit Lions (4-7)
The Lions are in a bad spot and normally this is the type of team I like to stay away from. They are favorites after a loss as dogs and will next be dogs. Last week, they lost to the Texans and next week they have to go to Green Bay. That’s called a sandwich game. Teams tend to take it easy in the middle part of that 3 game stretch...
