INDIANAPOLIS (AP) It wasn't pretty and the Indianapolis Colts know it.

Now all they can do is try to bounce back after an embarrassing 59-24 loss at New England on Sunday.

The Colts had four turnovers, and two of Andrew Luck's three interceptions were returned for touchdowns. Interim coach Bruce Arians said the mistakes the rookie quarterback made were just technical errors. He reminded Luck that Peyton Manning did the same thing during his first trip to New England back in 1998.

The only time this season Indy has lost back-to-back games was early in the season when they lost to Pittsburgh and Washington to fall to 1-2. After the Colts host Buffalo on Sunday, they host Tennessee, go on the road to Kansas City and play the Houston Texans twice.
