On the Colts impressive win...

“That was a pretty darn good script.  That was easily one of the best and most impressive regular season wins in franchise history and I don’t think that hyperbole. Yes there have been bigger wins like week 17 last year, but for everything stacked against them last night and to be able to go into that environment and bounce back, it shows some resiliency after such a week home performance the week before. There is no better way to go into the bye week then this.” 

 

On the Colts offensive line…

“Yes there was some creativity in the offense but at the same time, I felt like it turned into ‘let’s just do what we do the best’ and for them it was pound the football.  I thought that this was what I expected back in January and felt like the Colts had a chance. They had the blueprint to beat the Kansas City Chiefs and that is its an awful run defense by the Chiefs, you had a dominant offensive line and you need to feed Marlon Mack who had a career high 29 carries.  They were able to play the keep away.”

 

On shutting down the Chiefs receivers...

“I thought early on the Colts were super competitive at the moment of truth.  It felt like when the ball hit the Kansas City wide out players, the Colts made a play early on. Maybe some would call it a drop but I thought that rattled the pass catchers a little bit.  Look at the target and the catches for Kelce - ten targets for four catches. That is a horrible rate for arguably the teams best tight end. I thought they also threw a lot of different guys at him, they didn't just sit in the zone.”
