Both the Colts and Broncos are coming off their last games played on Sunday, and both teams have also adjusted and prepared their short practice schedule to acomodate TNF.

 

Both Indianapolis and Denver are tied each with 13 games apiece, including 3 postseason games, with the winner having the one-game lead in the series. Colts are also 3-0 in postseason games played after the 2003, 2004, and 2014 NFL season, along with 10 regular season games.

 

Last time the Colts and Broncos played at LOS,  it was Peyton's Manning's last full season as an NFL player but the opposing team, the Denver Broncos, hence, the 'Manning Bowl,' played  back on November 8, 2015. However, Adam Vinitieri's 55-yard field goal with 6:13 remaining in the fourth quarter, helped Indianapolis edge Denver 27-24.

Me too, our 2006 team was loaded with him, Marvin, and Clark. Reggie is what I call a TrueColt - he bleeds blue!

Love how he usually picks us on those pregame shows.

 

Never badmouthing to bad if he has to be critical...People love doing the REGGIE chant..lol

Aye, CC giving props to the Colts as a fighting team stating it should be fun to watch.  It should, hopefully. 

Actually it is amazing how many close games we have lost. This is promising for next season when Luck returns because we will better next season with another Draft and new Coach.

    • You're discounting Mike Petersen, who left for a big contract....Marcus Washington, who was a darn near pro-bowler with the Redskins...David Macklin was a decent zone corner....   Burlsworth was killed before pre season, but was thought of as a steal (but we won't count him.   Outside of round 3. McKinney was the first pick of the 4th round....the third day of the draft and was traded up to get.  He started immediately and left for a big contract via FA.  Ryan Ziem was a 4th rounder who has played as well as Smith, our second rounder and I believe earned two new contracts.   To me, you list shows that Polian had about 9 good players out of 12 picks.   Got a great G and RT in round 4....which is where you draft Gs and RTs.
    • Sweat was not an option for the Colts.  Not almost every other team in the NFL.   He had a heart condition.  That’s why a top-10 pick fell to pick 26.   Typically the owner and team doctor decides on guys like that, not the general manager.   Almost every team bypassed Sweat.  Because he wasn’t on the boards for most every team.   
    • Passing on Sweat made little sense...and I don't think Ballard gets a pass. Could you imagine if he had picked Sweat...people here wouldn't shut up about how great he was for picking Sweat.   But he didn't pick Sweat. IF Sweat was off the board because of some misleading health info...then Ballard had bad info. Also...Ballard drafted Hooker at #13 (missed the Combine and had surgeries for a torn labrum in his hip and a sports hernia); Turay (missed half of his games in his sophomore and junior seasons); and Blackmon (was recovering from an ACL tear in December). Ballard has not shown himself to be averse to taking health risks in the draft...even as early Day 1 or Day 2...so I am not buying that.    And IF Sweat was down their board...then it was poor evaluation. 
    • Brandon was killed in a car wreck before training camp his rookie year.
