Colts turn attention to run-stuffers on defense
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indianapolis Colts may have finally found an identity on defense.
In 2012, the Colts had the 29th ranked rushing defense, giving up an average of 5.1 yards per attempt, allowing 2,200 total yards. Last season, Indianapolis surrendered 2,002, an average of 4.5 yards per carry.
Indianapolis added former Cleveland Browns inside linebacker D’Qwell Jackson and Baltimore Ravens defensive end Arthur Jones this offseason. Jackson led the Browns last season with 141 total tackles, while Jones compiled 53 total tackles and four sacks.
