    Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky Displaying the characteristics that turned their season and have them in control of their playoff fate, the Colts were resilient and opportunistic as they found a way to win, yet again.

    On a windy day in Cleveland, Indianapolis couldn't get anything going on offense, losing an early Joseph Addai fumble, two Peyton Manning interceptions and a Manning fumble on a fourth-down at the goal line.

    But Dwight Freeney forced a Derek Anderson fumble, Robert Mathis scooped and scored and it was enough for a 10-6 win that moved the Colts to 8-4 and kept them at the head of the AFC Wild Card pack.

    Already without safety Bob Sanders (knee), the Colts lost middle linebacker Gary Brackett (ankle) and defensive tackle Keyunta Dawson (hamstring) during the game. Another linebacker, Freddy Keiaho, left the game late with a leg injury.

    But as has become their habit, the Colts patched the holes, moved right along and did enough to get the result they needed.

    Tony Dungy sounded optimistic leading up to the game about Sanders' potential to return next week against Cincinnati at Lucas Oil Stadium.

    Assessments of the new injuries still to come.

    If you didn't watch the game, but only read that, you'd never know that the Colts looked like crap and would have been trounced if they had been playing any decent team.

    Last few weeks Colts have been playing at the other teams level but manage to win.

    Playoff time they are done.
