INDIANAPOLIS — Colts vs. Jets

The game plan

Keep up the good that the Indianapolis Colts started in the second half of the Green Bay game. Indianapolis played with an up-tempo style on offense and got their pass rush untracked defensively over the final two quarters in the win over the Packers.

The Colts figure to stay up-tempo on offense, using a no-huddle attack for approximately 80 percent of last week's game. Those numbers will most likely same about the same, although Indianapolis would also like to pick up where the team left off in the running game. The key will be pass protection against a pretty aggressive New York defensive unit.

Defensively, the Colts have five sacks in the win over Green bay, with four of those occurring in the second-half rally. Indianapolis wants to keep the pressure on this week, especially since the Jets' quarterbacking situation is tenuous at best.

Key matchups

Colts QB Andrew Luck vs. Jets pass defense — Luck has been on a roll of late. He still hasn't played like a rookie, although the Jets defense is expected to throw up quite a few roadblocks this week. Indianapolis is averaging 286.3 yards per game passing. New York is allowing 199.8 yards per game. Both units are ranked sixth in the league in their respective categories.

Jets QB Mark Sanchez vs. Colts DE Cory Redding — Sanchez has been inconsistent so far this season. But he is good enough to break out of his struggles at any time. He hurt the Colts the last time these two teams met with New York posting a 17-16 win in an AFC Wildcard playoff game on Jan. 8, 2011.

Colts WR Reggie Wayne vs. Jets CB Antonio Cromartie. A classic matchup. Wayne is off to his best start of his career, catching a team-high 36 passes for 506 yards and two touchdowns. He is averaging 14.1 yards per reception. It's his highest yards per catch average since 2007 (14.5). Cromartie is a big, physical cornerback who has given Indianapolis fits since coming into the league. He has a team-leading two interceptions this season.

The series

67th regular-season meeting. The Colts lead series, 40-26.
