The Colts (1-1) looked impressive in their 38-14 victory over the New York Giants, shaking off the week one loss to the Houston Texans. For the first time in a long time, though, the Colts are looking-up at another team in the AFC South standings and need a win to keep pace with the Texans. Peyton Manning is still Peyton Manning and he usually puts-up big numbers against the Broncos – 28, 38, 34, and 49 in their last four meetings. Manning is off to a fast start, with 6 TD passes and a 72.3% completion percentage. He has also spread the ball out to several of his receivers, including Reggie Wayne, Dallas Clark, and Austin Collie. Wayne and Clark, in particular, have tormented the Broncos over the years. The run game has struggled some but Joseph Addai was effective against the Giants.
Defensively, the Broncos (1-1) gave-up significant yardage to the Seahawks but also intercepted Matt Hasselbeck three times and forced a fumble. The Broncos will have to deal with an injury to cornerback Champ Bailey, who is questionable with an injury suffered last week, and the timing couldn’t be worse with Manning and the boys coming to town. Linebacker D. J. Williams is leading tackler so far and he’ll have his hands full both in defending running lanes and the short pass.
