COLTS FOOTBALL IS BACK!!
It's been a great day of NFL football so far, but the best is yet to come, and that's the Colts season opener tonight. They take the field tonight in Denver against Peyton Manning and the Broncos. Here's your need-to-know info for the game:
8:30 p.m. ET, Sunday, September 7, 2014
Sports Authority Field at Mile High, Denver, Colorado
WFNI and WLHK in Indianapolis (with the legendary Bob Lamey doing play-by-play and former Colts backup quarterback Jim Sorgi doing color commentary)
Here's what I (Josh) wrote Friday night in my game preview (shameless plug: I'd recommend reading the whole thing):
As I wrote earlier this week, in no way should we rule the Colts out against the Broncos, and I'm definitely not doing so. I think Andrew Luck and this offense have enough firepower to make this game a high-scoring, competitive affair, but without Robert Mathis and against PFM in Denver, I think the Broncos will score even more against an overmatched Colts defense. The Colts will be competitive, but I think the Broncos win.
Colts 31, Broncos 38
Here's Matt Grecco's prediction of the game: Broncos 27, Colts 24
