INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - The Colts are returning to the road this week, heading to Detroit to take on a struggling Lions team whose 4-7 record can be deceiving.
Despite the disappointment surrounding the Lions this year, they've played some competitive battles.
"They have a lot of talent on that team, both offensively and defensively," said safety Antoine Bethea. "We just have to go out there and play. They've had a lot of close games this year. We've had a lot as well. We've just come out on the other end. It's going to be a tough game for us."
The Colts defense will have their hands full with one of the league's most potent passing pairs – Matt Stafford and Calvin Johnson.
"When you've got two guys with the quality of Matthew (Stafford) and Calvin (Johnson), they are as good as it gets in this league," said interim head coach Bruce Arians. "As far as a one-two punch, the guy throwing to a guy catching, Matthew can make every throw in the book and this guy can obviously take a short one and go over or you could have him covered and he's still going to jump out and catch it."
