For the first time in over a month, the Colts were not celebrating a ‘Victory Monday’ when gathering at the Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center yesterday.
Veterans who had been used to treating the past few Mondays as an off day walked into the Colts complex looking to get back to the team’s winning ways.
“We cannot let the mistakes that we did on (Sunday) continue into the next game,” defensive end Fili Moala said. “We just have to fix the issues that we had and move on, look at is as an opportunity to get better.”
The Colts will wrap up their slate of AFC East games for 2012 on Sunday with the Buffalo Bills coming into Lucas Oil Stadium.
For numerous Colts players, Sunday’s contest against the Bills will be the first meeting against them but their offense is comparable with the Patriots.
“They have great wide receivers, a shifty running back and a offensive line that plays well together so if we don’t come ready and prepared to play this game the same outcome might occur, but that won’t happen,” Moala said.
Even though the Patriots loss was less than 24 hours old, Colts safety Tom Zbikowski was already looking towards the Bills and their offensive scheme.
“We’ve got an offense coming here that’s going to be very similar to what we faced,” Zbikowski said. “Get familiar with (the offense) because we’re going to see it again this upcoming week.”
The players will reconvene as a group on Wednesday afternoon to begin the week of practice in hopes of continuing a trend of a resilient football team.
Throughout the year the Colts have rebounded from a loss the previous week with a victory the next.
Week 12 of the NFL season is no time to start beating yourself up over a single loss and the Colts are straying far away from that with the Bills coming to town.
“We just have to make sure that we come in excited on Wednesday, excited to practice, excited to get better and not make the same mistakes that we made on Sunday,” Moala said.
