No chest thumping for first-place Colts

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indianapolis Colts found themselves in familiar territory Monday morning, although it took them awhile to get back there.

For the first time since the end of the 2010 season, the Colts are in sole possession of first place in the AFC South. With Houston losing at San Francisco Sunday night along with Tennessee losing earlier in the day to Kansas City, Indianapolis -- now with a 4-1 record and a three-game winning streak - has returned to the top of the divisional heap.

Colts head coach Chuck Pagano likes the position his team finds itself in, especially after impressive wins over NFC favorites San Francisco and Seattle. But Pagano is quick to stress that there’s still a long ways to go before any real chest thumping can begin.

“You know what? It’s Week [6]. It’s a marathon, it’s not a sprint. We know that, so we’re going to stay grounded, we’re going to say humble. We’re going to enjoy this for a couple [days] and then we’re going to get back to work and get ready for Monday Night Football against San Diego,” he said Sunday after Indianapolis’ 34-28 win over Seattle.

Given a few hours to think about it, Pagano admitted Monday that he understands the enormity of what the Colts have accomplished so far this season.

“You have to [feel good]. You have to. Accomplish those two things [wins over the 49ers and Seahawks] and to be more importantly sitting here at 4-1 after five weeks of the season. Every team is good. We know that. We’re going to face another good one Sunday [at San Diego]. Games are hard to win at this level but the guys, I guess if you polled the coaches and the players, you’d have to feel good about yourself winning,” he said.
