--The Colts struggled to stop the Texans on third down but dominated against the Giants.
"If we can get off the field on third downs, I'll take our chances on winning that night," said CB Jerraud Powers on the Colts' defensive effort against the Giants.
--DE Dwight Freeney has 21 career multiple-sack games. He also has seven games in which he has forced more than one fumble.
--"We're basically programmed. We call it the trifecta: We want to get the sack. We want to get the forced fumble. We want to get the touchdown," said Freeney.
The Colts had four sacks, three forced fumbles (recovering two) and scored a defensive touchdown off a sack.
