Peyton Returns To Indianapolis As Colts Host Broncos

Posted by Stan Simmons on 2/4/2014 5:22:17 AM

Peyton Manning was once the face of the franchise for the Indianapolis Colts, but he has since been replaced by Andrew Luck, and the two will meet for the first time in Indianapolis this Sunday night. The Broncos still appear to be the best team in the league led by the best quarterback, but Luck is already looking like a veteran when under center so this game will feature two of the best quarterbacks in the NFL today.

What To Watch For From The Indianapolis Colts

Luck certainly looks like the next Manning in Indianapolis as the second-year player has 1,346 passing yards and seven interceptions through six games. Although his numbers aren’t as gaudy as Manning’s, Luck is showing signs of maturity and progress as a 24-year-old and the future seems bright for the former Stanford Cardinal. Trent Richardson has been effective but unspectacular since joining the Colts as the former first-round pick is averaging just 3.1 yards per carry, but is reliable in short yardage downs and is doing what the Colts ask of him. The run game won’t be asked to carry the Colts’ offense, but if Richardson could raise his yards per carry average it would drastically help a Colts team looking to become a consistent sports betting option.

What To Watch For From The Denver Broncos

Manning has cooled off as of late, but he is still putting up historic numbers and is in the middle of his best season yet as a professional quarterback. Manning is completing nearly 75% of his passes and already has over 2,000 passing yards this season. The Broncos’ offense scores an average of 44 points per game, which is tops in the league, and if they can keep up this pace their defense will have zero pressure to perform. The great news for the defense however is that star linebacker Von Miller has served his six game suspension and will be active against the Colts this weekend. The defense really needs to improve its play if the Broncos want to be seen as the best all-around team as the unit is currently giving up an average of 26 points per game, and over 400 yards of total offense as well. The Broncos have become one of the most fun teams to watch this season, and on Sunday night they will likely take it to the Colts in-order to preserve their undefeated record.

Outlook

The Colts have a very threatening offense with Luck under center, but the Broncos have a historically great offense and is miles ahead of their opponents. Manning finally threw his first interceptions of the year this past week, but he still has 22 touchdowns to just two interceptions, which is the reason I am picking the Broncos to not only win the game, but cover the spread as well.

Pick: Broncos
