INDIANAPOLIS – Colts interim coach Bruce Arians asked for a show of hands from players who will be making their first trip to New England this Sunday.
“Way too many,” Arians said, assessing the group of players new to the Colts-Patriots rivalry.
One of those making his first trip will be quarterback Andrew Luck. Luck shouldn't get too caught up worrying about what Patriots coach Bill Belichick might throw at him, Arian said.
“I don't think he has to do anything different than he's been doing,” Arians said. “Study the tape. It's all out there. I feel like we've got a pretty good handle of what we'll see, and we'll have them ready.”
The Colts (6-3) play the Patriots (6-3) at 4:25 p.m. Sunday at Gillette Stadium, Foxboro, Mass.
