Why stop at one? The Indianapolis Colts don’t intend to.
Still savoring their first taste of victory of the post-Peyton Manning era, they look forward to another helping when Jacksonville (0-2) visits Lucas Oil Stadium for Sunday’s AFC South-opener.
Off to a 1-1 start, the Colts enter the conference showdown brimming with confidence following last week’s home win against Minnesota.
“Winning makes everything feel better. (It) makes food taste better and makes me sleep a lot better,” linebacker Jerrell Freeman said, echoing a common Colts sentiment heading into Week 3.
Unburdened of the largely symbolic “first win” objective, the rebuilding Colts move on to the business of winning, period. A victory against Jacksonville would keep them on an early pace with unbeaten Houston in the race for the division championship.
Rebuilding or not, the Colts intend to run with the front-runners. Defending home field is the starting line.
They are 3-0 so far at Lucas Oil Stadium, counting the preseason.
