Surprisingly strong defense may put Colts on playoff course

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) The Indianapolis Colts invested heavily in beefing up their defense during the offseason.

They traded a first-round pick to San Francisco for defensive tackle DeForest Buckner and subsequently signed him to a four-year contract extension. They added free-agent cornerbacks Xavier Rhodes and T.J. Carrie. They even used a third-round draft pick on All-American safety Julian Blackmon, knowing he had a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Now they're seeing the payoff.
