INDIANAPOLIS -- Apparently, winning is still too complex for the Detroit Lions.
• The Lions are 0-14. They're the first 0-14 team since the 1980 Saints and the third team to start 0-14 since 1970. They've lost 15 straight overall, dating back to last season, and 21 of their last 22 games.
• The Colts have won 10 games for the seventh straight season, tied for the second-longest stretch in NFL history (Cowboys, 1975-81).
• Detroit has allowed 31-plus points in nine of 14 games this year.
• Dallas Clark had a career-high 12 catches and a touchdown. His previous best was eight.
