During the week leading up to the Colts-Chiefs playoff game, Colts head coach Tony Dungy humbly stated that Indianapolis certainly wasn't going to hold a great back like Larry Johnson to 50 yards.
And he was right.
An inspired Colts defense held him to just 32 yards rushing on 13 carries. How the Colts did it was just one of the many topics Dungy discussed during his interview this week on Sirius NFL Radio.
The Colts' head coach also discussed how both Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne played key roles in the game, even when they weren't catching passes. And he was also very pleased with the special teams effort against the always-dangerous Dante Hall.
But this week the Colts head to Baltimore for their next matchup. And as of late, the visitors' role hasn't yielded very good results. After going 7-1 last year on the road and winning their first four away games this season, the Colts have dropped four straight outside of the RCA Dome.
Not a problem, says Dungy.
"Our team is very, very confident. We've gone to Denver, we've gone to Baltimore last year and won on opening day, we've gone to The Meadowlands, we've gone to New England this year on a Sunday night and won," he said. "So we're used to going into hostile environments, I think we'll relish the challenge."
Listen to the full interview, compliments of Sirius NFL Radio, as Dungy talks about last week's win, this week's opponent, and provides an injury update on safety Bob Sanders, a key component to Indy's defense.
