Win or lose, Andrew Luck is a firm believer in forgetting about the past.
Good thing, since the Indianapolis Colts are coming off their most forgettable performance of the season.
Outplayed in all phases during a 35-9 road loss against the New York Jets, the Colts’ are looking for fixes — not looking in the rearview mirror — as they prepare for Sunday’s home game against the Cleveland Browns.
“I think, like a win, you flush it. You watch the film, you learn from the mistakes, realize that it’s a loss, but it’s one loss,” said Luck, who, like most of his teammates, was largely ineffective against the Jets. “We have another game and hopefully we can get a win, one win.
“Learn from the mistakes, get back after it.”
As ugly as the effort in New York was, it did not wreck the season.
Although the Colts (2-3) are in no position to take any opponent lightly, they have a sound chance to get back to .500. They are 2-0 at Lucas Oil Stadium this season and host a struggling team that lost its first five games.
Cleveland (1-5), however, is coming of its first win of the season, a 34-24 triumph against Cincinnati.
“We are in no position to look ahead by any means,” Luck said. “It’s going to be a tough test with the Browns, great defense, very sound, tough guys. I think they have like nine interceptions already on the year, so our work is cut out for us on the edges.
