The Broncos are undefeated coming off a win over the Jaguars that was tighter than expected. Nevertheless, Peyton Manning leads the league in every conceivable passing category and is making his first return to Indianapolis since leaving the city after 14 years in blue and white.
The Colts are coming off a loss to the Chargers on Monday Night Football, a game in which they scored just nine points. The output was surprising considering the team had posted 98 points over the three weeks prior.
This particular matchup will test both teams' strengths as the Colts' pass defense is fifth best in the league, while the Broncos possess the NFL's top passing attack.
