Sunday night's 38-14 win over the New York Giants was impressive, but Colts coach Jim Caldwell prefers to look ahead.

While there was general acknowledgement that the Colts didn't play well in their season-opening loss to Houston two weeks ago, Caldwell said at the time that he didn't want to waste time worrying about a game that has already been played.

Caldwell is using that same attitude after the Giants game. Despite an impressive victory, the game is over and it's time to move on. There's a road trip to Denver this week.

"I'm not a big person on looking back," Caldwell said recently. "The [Houston] game is beyond us. It is what it is. We didn't play well. I kind of like to look ahead. We played pretty well [against the Giants] and we've got a lot of work ahead of us this coming week.

"I don't believe on putting labels on things. [The Houston game] is done with. I can't do anything about the game [Sunday]. That one is over with. We just have to focus in on looking ahead. That's what I do with the team."

The Broncos have always proved to be tough when playing Indianapolis, especially in Denver.

"Let's just look forward. Let's look exactly what we have to face this coming week. We have a very, very difficult task ahead of us," the Colts coach said.

"It's going to take everything we have, and a little bit more, to prepare for a real solid Denver team."
