2013 Opponent Determined For The Indianapolis Colts

Joey Foley

The Colts will face the AFC and NFC West divisions next year, and will host Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos.

I'd imagine that, right now, the last thing any of you want to think about is next year. So, we're just going to toss this little bit of news up, and leave it be.

The NFL has released the 2013 regular season opponents for teams, including the Indianapolis Colts.

For intra-conference opponents (the conference being the AFC), the Colts will face the AFC West. For inter-confernece opponents (the conference being the NFC), the Colts will face the NFC West.

This means that, next year, the Colts will likely face the two quarterbacks that came before Andrew Luck:

Manning was the field general in Indianapolis from 1998-2010. He missed the entire 2011 season with a neck injury. From 1994-1997, Jim Harbaugh was the Colts' man-under-center. He went into coaching and, eventually, landed at Stanford where he recruited, among others, Andrew Luck and Coby Fleener.

How 'bout that?

Unfortunately, Harbaugh won't be making a return to Indianapolis in the regular season. Here's how the home and away games breakdown:


Home: Houston Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars, Tennessee Titans, Denver Broncos, Oakland Raiders, Miami Dolphins, St. Louis Rams, Seattle Seahawks

Away: Houston Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars, Tennessee Titans, Kansas City Chiefs, San Diego Chargers, Cincinnati Bengals, Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers

Yes, you read the home games currently. If Peyton Manning is still Denver's QB in 2013 (and there is no reason for him not to be), that means Peyton will be coming back to Indy next season to play the Colts.

Oh, to be a ticket scalper for that game!
