Colts game planning for upset win Colts Notebook

INDIANAPOLIS -- Pep Hamilton has a game plan on how the Indianapolis Colts (4-2) can pull off an upset win over the undefeated (6-0) Denver Broncos Sunday night.

The Colts’ first-year offensive coordinator, though, knows that the task won’t be easy. After all, Denver comes to Lucas Oil Stadium for the nationally-televised (NBC Sports, 8:30 p.m.) as the National Football League’s most potent offense. The Broncos have scored 265 points so far this season, the most by any NFL team in the first six games of a season.

As for Hamilton’s game plan, it’s relatively simple. Play keep away. Limit the number of opportunities that Denver’s offense is on the field. Don’t get into a play-for-play, point-for-point scenario. Control the tempo.

“It’s important for us to control the line of scrimmage and establish a running game. I feel like that’s the formula that works for us,” Hamilton said Thursday.

“We had a few games where we won the time of possession battle and as we all know in this room, we didn’t do that this past Monday night [in a 19-9 loss at San Diego]. We feel like it’s important that we control the line of scrimmage.”

But while the game plan is pretty basic, executing it will be the tough part.

“Quite naturally, the game and the score of the game will dictate what we’re able to do offensively. So the flow of the game, it’ll kind of take care of itself,” the Colts assistant coach said. “It’s our goal as an offense to, at the end of the game, have at least one more point than the opponent and have a chance to win the game of course.”

When it comes to a possible game scenario, Denver head coach John Fox thinks that he has a pretty good idea what to expect.
