Mike Adams: Colts D Needs More Credit For Shutting Down Manning
The Colts bombed the Denver Broncos to advance to the AFC Championship game.
Most of the conversation was about the Colts explosive offense, but the 24-13 playoff victory over the Denver Broncos was all defense according to Mike Adams.
“I remember how well we played as a defense,” Adams said. “A lot of the media talk was taking away from how well the defense played, and saying he was hurt, and this and that. But I think it was us. I think it was the defense and we went out there and executed our game plan.”
Colts corners played with more physicality at the line of scrimmage than any other unit in the NFL last season, which was a boon when facing Manning and his vast array of weapons.
“Their game is about timing,” Adams said. “That’s what they do, it’s all based off timing and we disrupted that. We got in his face and we did things that made him feel uncomfortable,”
