INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The strong start by the Indianapolis Colts has everyone talking about the possibility of making the playoffs.

Interim coach Bruce Arians is more concerned with protecting No. 1 overall draft pick Andrew Luck.

One day after beating Jacksonville 27-10 to improve to 6-3, Arians talked about everything from two personal foul calls on the Jaguars for hitting Luck in the head or near the head to the tackle Luck tried to make after throwing an interception.

Arians wants his rookie quarterback doing everything he can to protect himself. His advice is simple: Slide to avoid big hits and hit with his left shoulder if he throws an interception.
