"I remember how well we played as a defense," Adams said. "A lot of the media talk was taking away from how well the defense played, and saying he was hurt, and this and that. But I think it was us. I think it was the defense and we went out there and executed our game plan."
Colts corners played with more physicality at the line of scrimmage than any other unit in the NFL last season, which was a boon when facing Manning and his vast array of weapons.
"Their game is about timing," Adams said. "That's what they do, it's all based off timing and we disrupted that. We got in his face and we did things that made him feel uncomfortable,"
Adams replied with a smile stating, "Absolutely."
The book on Manning isn't new. Get physical with his receivers, bust up his timing and make him move his feet in the pocket.
