MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — The Colts’ lightly regarded running game is giving the Saints fits behind Joseph Addai’s workmanlike effort. The fourth-year pro has rumbled for 58 yards on five carries on Indianapolis’ first two drives, and his ability to find daylight between the tackles is making the Saints pay for paying too much attention to Peyton Manning.
With the Colts unexpectedly showing a balanced attack, the Saints are seemingly unable to come up with the right defensive call to slow Indianapolis down. Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams is a masterful in-game adjuster, but Addai’s emergence is undoubtedly testing his tactical skills in this game.
