The Colts don't have time to dwell on what happened Sunday. They just have to find fixes, and find them fast.

Indy (6-3) struggled offensively for the first three quarters again, gave up too many big plays and third-down conversions again, and even got fooled on kick return coverage, too.

Coach Chuck Pagano didn't like anything he saw.

With a two-game lead in the AFC South over the Titans and a Thursday night trip to Tennessee looming, the Colts must move forward.

They need to fix a ground game that averaged a measly 1.3 yards per carry Sunday, find more consistency in the passing game and shore up a defense that has allowed 95 points in the last three games.
