INDIANAPOLIS: The Colts continue their transition to man blocking in the running game. New offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton comes from Stanford, where he used a power running game between the tackles. They'll likely try to establish the running game more than they did last year under former OC Bruce Arians, when they were one of 11 teams to run on less than 40 percent of their plays. Vick Ballard will get the first crack in what should be a committee set-up. Delone Carter will likely take short yardage duties, while Donald Brown (not an ideal fit in this scheme) will rotate in on all three downs. Hamilton kept last year's playbook, and he's obviously familiar with Andrew Luck from college. They want to take a lot of shots up the seam, and they do a nice job utilizing pick plays and setting up bubble screens. Reggie Wayne is an intermediate target and the No. 1 receiver, while slot man T.Y. Hilton will see more snaps and is capable of getting deep. Darrius Heyward-Bey replaces Donnie Avery as a deep threat. The tight ends play both ways, and Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener will often share the field. The Colts let Luck do his thing deep in opponent territory, though it is partly because they lack power in their offensive line. He's given the option to create with his legs. Although they have the third-easiest NFL schedule, the Colts will still struggle on the defensive end. In 2012, they recovered a pathetic three fumbles all year, allowed 138 rushing YPG (4th-most in NFL) and surrendered 29.1 PPG on the road. With Dwight Freeney gone, OLB Robert Mathis (8 sacks) is the only player left with more than four sacks. But not all is hopeless, as MLB Jerrell Freeman (145 tackles, 5th in NFL) is a budding star, and Indy improved its secondary by signing CB Greg Toler and SS LaRon Landry.
SAN DIEGO: New head coach Mike McCoy oversaw more of a one-cut running scheme in Denver, but he'll probably adapt to the power personnel he has. He rotated a stable of backs with the Broncos, and it looks like a similar situation in San Diego. The perennially disappointing Ryan Mathews will take the bulk of the early down reps, but he'll be spelled early and often. Danny Woodhead will take most passing downs and get some take-what-they-give-you runs when teams send out extra defensive backs. Ronnie Brown's only real value is as a pass protector, and Le'Ron McClain will be primarily a lead blocker again. McCoy and new offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt both have a background based more in the vertical passing game, so the Chargers air attack shouldn't change much. Philip Rivers is at his best getting the ball deep up the seam, and Danario Alexander and Malcom Floyd should continue to see a lot of work there. McCoy plans on being more creative with Antonio Gates, who will continue to line up in a number of spots as a flex tight end. They will likely use either Eddie Royal or rookie Keenan Allen in the slot, though Rivers doesn't use slot receivers much. McCoy and Whisenhunt historically like to keep the ball on the ground in the red zone, and Mathews should get goal-line carries. The Chargers had seven defensive touchdowns last year, but in effort to generate more pressure (two sacks or less in 11 games in 2012), DE Dwight Freeney (107.5 career sacks) was signed. Bigger sack numbers are also expected from third-year pro DE Corey Liuget (7 sacks). But having the NFL's second-easiest schedule, plus adding shutdown CB Derek Cox and rookie LB Manti Te'o to incumbent standouts FS Eric Weddle and ILB Donald Butler makes defensive coordinator John Pagano's 3-4 scheme one to respect.

*Colts-Chargers Preview* ========================


Even if the AFC South-leading Indianapolis Colts were feeling a bit overconfident, Andrew Luck says coach Chuck Pagano wouldn't allow it.

Indianapolis is remaining grounded through its early success and will seek a fourth consecutive victory in Monday night's road matchup with the inconsistent San Diego Chargers.

Luck is the first Colts quarterback other than Peyton Manning to lead the team to sole possession of first place since his former Stanford mentor and current San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh had 4-0 Indianapolis atop the AFC East for the week of Oct. 13, 1996.

The second-year star finished 16 of 29 for 229 yards and two touchdowns in last week's 34-28 win over previously unbeaten Seattle, helping the Colts (4-1) erase a five-point deficit heading into the fourth quarter.

"I don't think it's in the DNA of a Pagano-coached team to hang your head or to get too high when you're doing something well," Luck said. "His approach is very methodical."

Pagano believes his team understands the season is still young. Following this game, the Colts will face Denver in Manning's return to Indianapolis next week before their bye. They then visit two-time defending South champion Houston on Nov. 3.

"I don't think you'll see any of these guys walk around with their chest puffed out like a robin, walking around the yard after a big rain storm, bunch of worms out there, all robin-ed up," Pagano said. "We're not going there. We'll keep reminding them it's a short ride from the penthouse to the outhouse."

The Colts rank fourth in the league with 142.0 rushing yards per game, but they suffered a blow after learning Ahmad Bradshaw opted for surgery on his injured neck and will miss the rest of the season.

He sat out last week as Trent Richardson ran 18 times for 56 yards and Donald Brown added 37 and a touchdown. The Chargers, who rank 24th with an average of 117.2 rushing yards allowed per game, are expecting Richardson to carry the load again Monday.

"He's a powerful runner that a lot of times doesn't go down with the first hit," linebacker Larry English said. "We have to do a great job this week tackling, we've talked about that. We need 11 players rallying to the ball and playing aggressive defense."

San Diego (2-3) held Oakland to 299 yards last week, but it committed five turnovers and couldn't overcome a 17-point halftime deficit in a 27-17 defeat.

"It doesn't matter what level you're at, when you turn the ball over five times, it's tough to win games," coach Mike McCoy said.

Philip Rivers finished 35 of 48 for 411 yards and two touchdowns in his third 400-yard game of the season, but he also tossed three interceptions after throwing two in the previous four contests.

The Chargers lost two fumbles, and running back Ryan Mathews suffered a concussion that could possibly keep him from playing Monday. If he can't go, Danny Woodhead and Ronnie Brown will be tasked with helping improve a running game that finished with 32 yards on 19 carries last week.

Indianapolis has forced 10 turnovers, but it ranks 30th in the NFL with an average of 129.0 rushing yards allowed.

"They play great team defense," Brown said. "They always have that bend-but-don't-break mentality, so on offense we have to go in and not give them any extra possessions. We have to make sure to hold onto the ball and take care of our fundamentals."

San Diego has forced only two turnovers this season and ranks 27th in the league with 406.0 yards allowed per game, and it knows it has a tough task ahead in trying to contain Luck.

"He can definitely run and move out of that pocket, but he'd rather sit back there and throw the ball," defensive end Corey Liuget said. "He's a heck of a quarterback."

Defensive end Lawrence Guy blocked a field that was returned for a touchdown for Indianapolis last week, but the Colts released him less than 24 hours later. The Chargers claimed Guy off waivers Monday.

San Diego has won five of the last six meetings, including twice in the postseason. Rivers went 19 of 23 for 185 yards in a 36-14 victory in the most recent matchup Nov. 28, 2010, at Indianapolis.
