Broncos vs. Colts: 8 Takeaways from Denver's 39-33 Loss to Indianapolis
Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos finally suffered their first loss of the season Sunday night, falling to the Indianapolis Colts, 39-33, at Lucas Oil Stadium.

The Broncos' high-powered offense struggled throughout the night, as they went numerous three-and-outs without converting a first down during the second and third quarters. 

Colts quarterback Andrew Luck played every bit as well as Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning—if not better—and showed everyone why he was selected to be Manning's successor in Indianapolis.

The Broncos will enter Week 8 versus the Washington Redskins at 6-1 and in second place in the AFC West.

The loss to the Colts revealed that the Broncos offense can be slowed down, and that the Broncos as a team aren't as invincible as many people thought. 

What are a few takeaways from the Broncos' first loss of the season?
