Indianapolis Colts shut down team website to help fans can 'focus' on AFC Championship



The Indianapolis Colts website is down -- but not because of hackers.

The team has mostly taken the site offline in a "Blue Friday" promotion aimed at helping fans "direct all focus to our game this coming Sunday," according to an announcement on the homepage.

That game is the AFC Championship against all-time great quarterback Tom Brady and the hated New England Patriots.

The winner advances to the Super Bowl.

Fans visiting are met with a short video extolling the virtues of preparation, teamwork and leaving it on the field.

The short clip also asked fans to "believe in blue," the team's dominant color.

News directly from the Colts can be found on the team's mobile site or apps.

Indianapolis last week beat the Denver Broncos, which were led by former Colts quarterback Peyton Manning.
