 The Indianapolis Colts will travel to San Diego to face the Chargers in what is Andrew Luck's Monday Night Football debut. The Colts are coming off a huge win against the Seahawks and are now on a 3 game winning streak. The Chargers are coming off a loss against the Raiders. Whenever the Colts play the Chargers, it always seems to be a close game, especially if the game is in San Diego, so this should set up to be a close good game.   What the Colts have to do to Win On offense, the Colts need to play smart balanced football.

If the defense plays pretty well, they won't have to be aggressive. They should start out like I said by playing smart balanced football, but as the game goes on they should base their offense on how their defense is playing. If they're doing well on defense, they can be more conservative on offense...

But ask any NFL scout, GM or head coach, and they’ll tell you if they had to do the 2012 draft...
