NFL: Colts vs Broncos Preview


broncos vs coltsIn the first Sunday Night Football game of the 2014 season, the Indianapolis Colts are set to visit Mile High Stadium to take on the Peyton Manning led Denver Broncos in what should be an exciting matchup that both teams would love to win.

The Indianapolis Colts come into this season looking to enjoy similar success from last season in which they won the AFC South, a division that also features the Jacksonville Jaguars, Tennessee Titans, and the Houston Texans. Led by Andrew Luck, the Colts are looking to get an opening week victory over the Broncos who, of course, are led by former longtime Colt, Peyton Manning. In order to do so, Luck will need to play as effective as possible and the Colts defense will need to work as hard as possible to shut down Manning, and the Broncos offense.

The Broncos come into this season having lost last year, in convincing fashion, to the Seattle Seahawks in the Superbowl. This year, the Broncos boast a defense that is very much improved and should help contribute to their status as favorites to win the AFC once again. The Broncos play in the AFC West, and will have to compete against the Kansas City Chiefs and San Diego Chargers, as well as the Oakland Raiders to win the division. One early season obstacle the Broncos will have to overcome is the suspension of Wes Welker for the first 4 games of the season after a positive test for MDMA.

The line for this game favors the Broncos by 7.5 points, and the over/under is set at 56.

This will be a tough game for the Broncos, especially without Welker, but they should get the victory at home. Broncos win this one 31-24.
