INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Colts need a primary solution to a secondary problem.

They can't stop the pass, and the problem has been getting worse as Indianapolis (8-5) gears up for the playoffs as they face Houston this weekend.

Through this season's first seven games, the Colts allowed quarterbacks to complete 58.7 percent of their attempts and gave up only three TD passes longer than 20 yards. Over the last six, quarterbacks have a completed 64.9 percent and have six TD passes longer than 20 yards.

What's wrong?

Well, starting cornerback Greg Toler hasn't played since Oct. 20 because of an injured groin, and the Colts' defensive front is averaging nearly half as many sacks during the last six games as it did over the first seven.
