Indianapolis Colts Inside Slant 2008-09-30
The Colts are getting back to work.


After getting in two days of practice and then allowing his team to have a three-day weekend in order to rest up, coach Tony Dungy is ready to hit the ground running this week.

Indianapolis will come off its bye week and begin preparations for Sunday's road game with Houston. The Colts will take an uncharacteristic 1-2 record into the matchup against their AFC South rival.

In addition to getting a chance to watch his son, Eric, make his first start at safety for a Tampa area high school, Dungy was able to catch up on the rest of the action in the NFL.

"What you see is the teams that are really are playing sharp and not beating themselves and minimizing their mistakes, not turning the ball over. That's who's winning," Dungy said. "I watched Tennessee. They've been as impressive as anybody I've seen all year. They're not turning the ball over. They're playing really hard on defense, making it tough on the other teams to score. Consequently, they're 4-0. So that's what we want to gear into and see if we can get back to playing that way."

Indianapolis, which has won five consecutive division crowns, is not used to looking up in the standings at other teams. But that's the situation that the Colts find themselves in right now.

"I'm not worried (about getting off to a 1-2 start and falling behind in the AFC South race) so much as I am about us," Dungy said. "We certainly don't want to go to 1-3. We don't want to have two division losses back-to-back and get behind the eight-ball that way. We've just got to start playing better.

"If we get ourselves playing, you can't control how anybody else is. As I said, Tennessee's playing great right now. But our concern is more of getting ourselves playing great. Then we'll be in good shape. We've got to start playing better and then (moving up the standings) will take care of itself, I think."
