Oehser's 5 for the Defense

Oehser lays down 5 things to watch for the defense tonight

1) The stoutness of the defensive interior. The Colts made significant moves to strengthen the defensive tackle position in the offseason, re-signing DT Ed Johnson and drafting DT Fili Moala (second round) and DT Terrance Taylor (fourth). The Vikings rushed for 198 yards on 41 carries against the Colts in the preseason opener, and while preseason statistics can be deceiving — and while sometimes they can mean absolutely nothing — Caldwell made it clear he was disappointed that the Vikings controlled the line. DT Antonio Johnson, who is the starter beside Ed Johnson, was out last week and he practiced several times this week, but with or without him, the Colts no doubt want to see the interior hold the line a bit better against the Eagles.
