ESPN: These Colts Aren't Flukes

Indianapolis has taken giant steps forward on both offense and pass defense through five games. With Pep Hamilton in charge, the Andrew Luck-led offense has seen a big boost in third-down efficiency and run-game success.

ESPN Upset Watch: Colts over Seahawks

Interesting notes for this week's Colts-Seahawks matchup: Seattle's cornerbacks have actually given up a lot of yardage to opposing wideouts this year, and the Colts' defense really needs to figure out how to stop Seattle on second downs. Cover Watch looks at the Jets and Falcons.

ESPN: Future Bright for Browns

The Brian Hoyer experiment is likely to return mixed results, but so far the Mike Lombardi/Joe Banner plan has been executed to a T: the defense they worked on all offseason is dramatically improved, and they'll have two shots at a new franchise quarterback next April.
