Coach Chuck Pagano pins Sunday's 41-21 loss on the Colts' mistakes. Andrew Luck blames himself.
The day after Indy's new franchise quarterback threw three interceptions and lost a fumble, the Colts committed five turnovers and Indianapolis lost its season opener for the third straight year, Pagano told his players they cannot afford a repeat performance.
Players and coaches say the miscues can be cleaned up with better blocking and better tackling.
And Luck, the No. 1 draft pick, insists he learned some valuable lessons against the Bears' tough defense and believes he can clean up the mistakes before Minnesota comes to town next weekend.
