Live by the close game, get humbled by the close game.
The Indianapolis Colts’ well-deserved reputation for pulling magic out of thin air absorbed a few minor dents Sunday in their 24-20 loss to Miami at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Plays that normally are made weren’t as Indy fell behind early, rebounded to take a lead and then fell behind again — this time for good in falling to 1-1 on the season.
“I’m disappointed in the loss, obviously. We had our chances. We just didn’t make enough plays,” Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. “We’ve got to play consistent football for 60 minutes, so we’ve got some things to clean up. It’s the National Football League. It doesn’t get any easier.”
