Indianapolis Colts vs Denver Broncos
Sunday – September 18 – 3:25 p.m.
Sports Authority Field at Mile High – Denver – Colorado
I’m a football fan through and through. There are teams that I don’t like and the Colts are one of them. Andrew Luck is deemed the second coming of Peyton Manning. He’s a very heady player and has the talent to lead his team. On the other hand, he whines and I hate that! The Broncos defense will have him whining and crying all game.
Why you shouldn’t watch this game
Your girlfriend wants to go shopping after church. She feels that wasting a good Sunday in front of the TV is absolutely bananas! She needs more “Us” time.
Why you should watch this game
You want to watch this game to see what the Broncos defense is going to do to Andrew Luck. Remember the Colts are playing a few inexperienced players at key positions. Either step up and make plays or get beat up every snap.
Trevor Siemian is the key. Demaryius Thomas is questionable for Sunday’s game. He’s the key to moving the ball outside the numbers. OL Micheal Schofield is solid at right guard. The Broncos running backs had gaping holes he opened in last week’s win. He allowed the backs to gain 96 yards on his blocking alone. Last year the offensive line got the quarterbacks sacked a league high 66 times. So seeing the guys put in solid work upfront is the difference on the offensive side of the ball. “I think the offense did very well.” Offensive Coordinator Rick Dennison said, “I think they communicated. There were a couple of things that we could have done better. But they guys seem to work very well together.”
Forcing turnovers will be the key to the game. Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips should send the house on first and second down. The focus is to rattle Andrew Luck early. Knowing what I know and seeing what I’ve seen, the Broncos defensive scheme is to unleash the hounds! Shutting down T.Y. Hilton will be another key to a victory. The Broncos corner backs are always up to the challenge of shutting marquee players down. So, this game will be a good one.
This game will be a good game. Denver fans will be ready to rock the stadium Sunday. On a snack scale … Make beef nachos, hot wings (spicy) and ice cold Bud Lights for this one. I give it a 8 out of a possible 10. The Broncos will win by 17!
