The Colts, in a losing effort, did provide one excellent wrinkle that Bob Sanders should try exploiting, especially as he has the personnel to pull it off.
The Colts, on most early downs, came out in a 4-4-3, with an extra linebacker in for a defensive back. This extra beef to the 28th ranked run defense kept the Titans run game in check. Where the Colts defense broke down was on third down, allowing Titan quarterback Kerry Collins to pick them apart, with sometimes baffling soft zone coverage. If the Packers can use a combination of an extra linebacker and/or an extra defensive linemen to keep the down and distance in their favor, they should be able to win on third down with their aggressive man coverage.
