Colts 2015 Regular Season Schedule Could be Released Next Week

According to Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio, the release of the 2015 NFL regular season schedule is currently planned for Thursday, April 23 - meaning we could find out the Colts' 2015 schedule next week.

Last week, the NFL announced the 2015 preseason schedule, and that was just a brief glimpse of what will happen within the next few weeks as they announce the regular season schedule.  According to Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio, the date of that announcement is currently planned for Thursday, April 23.  Florio notes that this date could change but that, according to a source, that's the date it's currently planned for.

We've known the opponents for each team, including the Indianapolis Colts, for months, but we have yet to find out when those games will be taking place and what games will be televised nationally on primetime.  Those details and more will be released soon enough, and it could very well be next Thursday.

For now, here's the list of the Colts' 2015 opponents:

Indianapolis Colts 2015 Opponents
Houston Texans Houston Texans
Jacksonville Jaguars Jacksonville Jaguars
Tennessee Titans

Tennessee Titans

Denver Broncos Buffalo Bills
New England Patriots Miami Dolphins
New York Jets Atlanta Falcons
New Orleans Saints Carolina Panthers
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Pittsburgh Steelers

The team will face the other three AFC South teams twice a year, like normal, and will also play the NFC South and AFC East divisions.  Since the Colts won their division last year, they'll also play the division champion from each other AFC conference, which includes the Denver Broncos (AFC West), Pittsburgh Steelers (AFC North), and New England Patriots (AFC East - already on the schedule due to the Colts playing that division).

What will perhaps be the most interesting thing to see when the schedule is released is which games for the Colts will be on primetime.  After an 11-5 season that saw the Colts boast a prolific offense, win two playoff games, and make the AFC Championship game, it's expected that the Colts will have the maximum number of primetime games allotted, and there are a number of notable matchups to consider, such as the Patriots, Broncos, Saints, Steelers, and others.

One thing we do know about the schedule, however: the Colts won't be facing the Patriots in week one.  New England will open at home since they are the defending Super Bowl champions, and the Colts play them at Lucas Oil Stadium in 2015.  So we know that it won't be Colts vs. Patriots in week one.  But other than that?  It's all a guess right now, but that likely won't remain the case for long, as according to PFT the schedule is currently set to be released next Thursday.
