Andrew Luck leads the league with 1,305 yards and 13 touchdowns and has led the Colts to an NFL-best 136 points. Luck's goal this week against the Ravens is simple: Keep the momentum.
Indy may not need to make any major revisions Sunday against Baltimore (3-1).
While the Ravens' usually stout defense is allowing 15.0 points, the pass defense has been suspect. Opposing quarterbacks have completed 64.2 percent of their passes, thrown one interception and been sacked only four times.
The Ravens have given up five touchdowns overall in the first four games, second-fewest in the NFL. Baltimore's also given up an average of 15 points per game, and that's tied for second-least in the NFL.
The defense "is good," linebacker Terrell Suggs said. "Would we like it a little bit better? Absolutely. We have not peaked until we can get as good as we can get it."
The Ravens have been just about as good as they can get in the red zone, as opposing teams scored touchdowns on just three of 11 trips inside the 20-yard line. That's 27.3 percent — tops in the NFL.
But all parts of the defense are going to be tested this week because Luck and the Colts are dangerous in so many ways.
Indianapolis is averaging 444 yards per game, 326 passing and 118 more on the ground. That's why the defense knows this has to be a week of limiting both mistakes and big plays.
