INDIANAPOLIS -- Indianapolis picked a poor time to have a bad game. Jameer Nelson Jersey . The Colts missed an opportunity to seize control of the AFC South, show a prime-time TV audience theyre a legitimate title contender and now have to prepare for Peyton Manning and the unbeaten Broncos on a short week. Good luck, right? Chuck Pagano thinks it could be a perfect remedy for Indianapolis ills. "I know it cant come quickly enough for all of us," Pagano said Tuesday when asked about Sundays game. "But weve got to go through the process and prepare, obviously, for this next opponent." Sure, theres plenty to fix between now and the leagues most anticipated game of the season -- Mannings return to Lucas Oil Stadium. And after Monday nights 19-9 loss, the Colts coaches will use every precious moment they have. The cramming session began after an early morning flight back to Indy. Pagano and his staff spent the first part of the day reviewing the tape from their latest stumble in San Diego. It didnt take long to dissect the offence with what Pagano described as only 42 "gradable" plays. They saw four drops including potential scores from Darrius Heyward-Bey and Coby Fleener and a big drop by Reggie Wayne on third down that would have given Indy a key first down. Luck was sacked once, threw a late interception and was under pressure much of the night, and Indy ran only 17 times for 74 yards. Thats not how these Colts (4-2) were built. Yet the biggest problem came on third down. Indy converted only 2 of 10 chances. San Diego (3-3) was 7 of 14. The combination led to a 17-minute disparity in time of possession -- an oddity for a team that came into the weekend with the leagues No. 4 rushing offence. "It was different. It certainly was uncharacteristic of us," Pagano said. "I just think, you can point your finger to a lot of things -- didnt execute well, obviously, third down was an issue on both sides of the ball, which led to the time of possession issue and all those type of things. "Three third downs on defence where you have penalties that extend drives by four plays, five plays, nine plays, lead to 10 points, thats shooting yourself in the foot. Talked about the dropped passes, which are totally uncharacteristic of our guys. We had opportunities, we had chances." They just couldnt convert. Indy cant afford a repeat this week against Manning and the high-scoring Broncos (6-0). Denver averages 44.2 points per game, a pace that would shatter the NFLs single-season scoring record set by New England during its perfect 2007 regular season (589). One way to combat the Broncos is to steal a page from San Diegos game plan by keeping the ball on the ground and out of Mannings hands. But Indy has to find other solutions and fast. The Colts have been credited with eight drops over the previous two weeks, and the slow starts are becoming a disturbing trend. At San Diego, the Colts settled for field goals on the first and last drives of the first half. The previous week against Seattle, they fell into a 12-0 deficit after opening the game with three straight three-and-outs. Give Manning an opening like that, and its game over as players such as Wayne know all too well. But the Colts have been one of the leagues most resilient teams since Paganos arrival. They went from 2-14 in 2011, when Manning missed the season with a nerve injury, to 11-5 under Luck last season -- tied for the second-greatest one-season improvement in league history. They did that as Pagano spent most of the season battling cancer. Indy still has not lost two straight under Pagano, a streak they kept intact by winning at defending NFC champion San Francisco in Week 3, and they have won nine of their past 10 home games. Theyve just never had to rebound on a short week. "Again, Sunday cant come quick enough," Pagano said. "You play a West Coast game on Monday night, you deal with it as things come. Well put a plan together and get these guys back, get some guys back hopefully and get them healthy and recharged and all those type of things and, hopefully, get ready to play a good ball game on Sunday night."

Orlov, who scored two goals in the game, was assessed a major penalty for boarding on the play. The Flyers scored once on the power play and again with the extra attacker with 65 seconds remaining to send the game to overtime. http://www.authenticnuggetsproshop.com/Gary-Harris-Jersey/ .C. -- Steve Spurrier was much happier about South Carolinas improved performance than about his lastest career milestone.HOUSTON -- Right-hander Scott Feldman signed a three-year deal Friday to become the veteran presence in the Houston Astros rotation. Feldman, who will turn 31 just before spring training begins, was 12-12 with a 3.86 ERA in 30 combined starts for the Chicago Cubs and Baltimore last season. The deal puts Feldman on a staff that includes four returning pitchers who made at least 10 starts last year and are 25 years or younger -- even after 23-year-old Jordan Lyles was traded by the Astros to Colorado earlier this week. "Everybody starts in this game young, you can really learn a lot just by watching anybody. ... I can learn from them and they can also learn from me," Feldman said. "Its just going to be great to have a group of guys that works wells and we can all get on the same page, help each other out and have a successful season." Houston is coming off a 111-loss season. The 6-foot-7 Feldman pitched in the AL West for Texas from 2005-12 before a one-year deal with the Cubs before last season. He was traded in July to the Orioles. He won 17 games for the Rangers in 2009 when he pitched a career-high 189 2-3 innings while making a career-high 31 starts. Thaat was the only time he pitched more than his 181 2-3 combined innings last season. Custom Denver Nuggets Jerseys. "Going into my free agency last year, I really just was looking for a place to go where I could just try to prove to everyone that I was capable of starting 30 games," Feldman said. "It was a big year for me. ... Just honestly, I felt like all I really needed was an opportunity, and Im glad I was able to make the most of it." Feldman, who was born in Hawaii, loved living in Texas before and his wife is from the Houston area. He was originally drafted by the Astros but didnt reach a deal then before going to college. The Rangers took him in the 30th round of the 2003 amateur draft. Feldman has made 234 career major league appearances, including 131 starts. He has a 51-56 record with a 4.62 ERA, and made nine relief appearance in the 2011 post-season when Texas went to the World Series. "We wanted an experienced starter to anchor our pitching staff," Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said. "Scott is a great fit with our club. He throws strikes and gets ground balls, and will be a great example for the rest of our young rotation."
