Tom Brady: We Have ‘to Put Up a Lot of Points’ Sunday

Jim Rogash/Getty Images(FOXBOROUGH, Mass.) -- The New England Patriots will travel to Indianapolis to take on the Colts Sunday night.

New England quarterback Tom Brady said Wednesday that the key to beating the Colts will be putting up a lot of points.

"When you play another great offense you're going to have to put up a lot of points," Brady said. "My focus is on the other side of the ball, but you also know you're not going to be able to score 13 points and win the game."

Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is on track to break Peyton Manning's single season passing yards record and is the leader of the NFL's highest scoring offense.

"He's a great player," Brady said of Luck.  "He's in his third year and he's had a lot of success.  They're offense is doing a great job this year, they score a lot of points especially at home and he's kind of the ring leader."

With a win on Sunday, the Patriots will remain the top seed in the AFC.

Colts Trample Giants Behind Luck’s Four Touchdowns

Colts Trample Giants Behind Luck’s Four Touchdowns

Joe Robbins/Getty Images(EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.) -- Andrew Luck threw four touchdown passes to go along with 354 passing yards as the Indianapolis Colts rolled over the New York Giants, 40-24, on Monday night. It was the seventh straight game that Luck tossed for more than 300 yards, a franchise record.

The scoring started off slow for Luck and the Colts (6-3), settling for a solitary Adam Vinatieri field goal in the first quarter. Indy's offense got going in the second when Luck found Coby Fleener for a 32-yard touchdown pass to make it a 10-0 game.

Three of Luck's scoring throws went for more than 30 yards, with all four going to a different receiver.

While the offense was firing on all cylinders, the Colts' defense kept New York (3-5) off-balance all night, sending them to their third straight loss. The Giants struggled to find a rhythm, scoring only a field goal in the first half. They were able to cut the lead to 23-10 on an Andre Williams 1-yard touchdown run, but the Colts responded with 17 straight points to put the game out of reach.

Manning finished the day with 359 passing yards and two touchdowns, although both scoring throws came late in the fourth quarter. Luck used nine different receivers during the game, with Fleener catching four passes for a team-high 77 yards.

"We realized with the recent history of Thursday night games, teams who are going on the road are struggling, and we didn't want to do that," Luck said. "We were lucky enough to get off on that fast start. It takes focus, and you almost have to trick yourself into it."

Hilton caught nine balls for a career-high 223 yards and a touchdown in the win.The Texans (3-3) attempted to make a late comeback. Defensive end J.J. Watt recovered a Luck fumble and ran it 45 yards for a touchdown to cut the Colts lead to five with 10:46 remaining in the game. With the score the same and two minutes to play Houston had the ball on its own 21 yard line, but quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick was stripped by Bjoern Werner and D'Qwell Jackson recovered the ball to seal the game for the Colts.

Arian Foster ran for 109 yards and two touchdowns in the loss, as Indianapolis takes over sole possession of first place in the AFC South.

Eagles Roar Back, Clip Colts at the Wire

Eagles Roar Back, Clip Colts at the Wire

Rich Shultz/Getty Images(INDIANAPOLIS) --  Trailing by seven with five minutes to play, Nick Foles led the Philadelphia Eagles on two scoring drives, the second ending with Cody Parkey hitting a go-ahead field goal with time expiring, as the Eagles clip the Indianapolis Colts, 30-27, Monday night.

The Colts (0-2) never trailed until Parkey hit the game-winning kick. Indianapolis went into halftime up 17-6 after Andrew Luck found tight end Jack Doyle for a two-yard touchdown. The Colts furthered their lead in the second half when Adam Vinatieri's field goal made it 20-6 with 6:43 remaining in the third quarter.

Despite the deficit the Eagles (2-0) never panicked, scoring on two touchdowns in less than two minutes to finish off the third tied 20-20.  The Colts answered back on their first drive of the fourth quarter when Luck threw his third touchdown of the game, a seven-yard pass to Ahmad Bradshaw, to go back up by seven.

The game stayed that way until the the 3:25 mark when Foles found Jeremy Maclin for a six-yard touchdown to tie it up. The Eagles defense made Indianapolis go four and out before Parkey hit the game-winning field goal.

"We felt we had some plays (in the first half), we just couldn't make them," Eagles coach Chip Kelly said. "But we're going to play 60 minutes and we played 60 minutes."

Darren Sproles made seven catches for 152 yards and a touchdown in the win.

Andrew Luck lost two consecutive games for the first time since joining the NFL, despite throwing three touchdowns.
