THE COLTS defeated the visiting Bills, 20-13, Sunday. But the biggest winners in Lucas Oil Stadium were two Indianapolis cheerleaders who shaved their heads in support of Colts head coach Chuck Pagano, who was diagnosed with leukemia earlier this season.

Two weeks ago, cheerleader Megan M. said she would shave her head if she and Blue, the team mascot, could raise $10,000 for the Colts' "ChuckStrong" campaign. They more than doubled that amount, raising $22,670, and Megan agreed to live up to her end of the deal. Crystal B. then jumped onboard and the pair went baldilocks between the third and fourth quarters.

Blue started the hairbrained proceedings before wisely handing the clippers off to a more experienced stylist.

Not long afterward, Pagano - sporting the bald look because of the treatment he has received - was greeted with a standing ovation when he and team owner Jim Irsay were shown on the stadium's video screen.

It was the second straight home game Pagano, who is in remission, has attended.
