Luck, Colts hoping latest wake-up call helps jump start struggling offense

Indianapolis needs a quick fix to its first half woes.

The running game has become stagnant, the passing game is out of sync and the Colts are digging themselves into too many early deficits. They need a solution before heading to Tennessee (4-5) on Thursday night.

While the problems haven't hurt the Colts (6-3) in the AFC South title chase yet, they have certainly put a drag on their path to the playoffs. Since losing Reggie Wayne to a season-ending knee injury Oct. 20, Luck has thrown four touchdown passes and three interceptions and completed just 54 percent of his throws. The result is that Indy has been outscored 49-3 in the first half the last two weeks.

What's wrong?

A little bit of everything.
