Colts will play the more intriging matchup later during Week 7 of the regular season as Peyton Manning returns with the Denver Broncos in the battle of the new and old Colts QB regimes on Sunday Night, October 20. Emphasis by the Colts coaching staff, among other team adjustments tonight, is to have the offensive line protect Luck.
