INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indianapolis can't seem to catch a break.

In the midst of a chaotic week with quarterback Andrew Luck searching for answers on offense and open questions about the future of coach Chuck Pagano, the Colts are preparing for an even bigger challenge: Stopping Cam Newton and Carolina's offense on Monday night.

The Colts (3-4) have looked somewhat lost lately and a visit from the unbeaten Panthers (6-0) will provide a stiff test.

Newton has totaled nine touchdown passes this season and is throwing for 212.5 yards game. He averages another 41 yards rushing and has run for four more scores.
