As they have every single time in the Luck/Pagano era, the Colts rose to the challenge as a home underdog on Sunday, defeating the Broncos 39-33 in the biggest regular-season game in recent Colts history.
Peyton Manning returned, but the game was about the Colts defense and Andrew Luck on this day, who played extremely well. The Colts now move to 5-2 and take their place among the AFC elite as a Super Bowl contender. Denver, meanwhile, moves to 6-1 and slides to second place in the AFC West. The Colts have a two-game lead in the AFC South.
It was a phenomenal win for the Colts franchise, which was embarrassed after the loss on Monday Night Football last week. But in true Colts fashion, they continued their streak of unbeaten play after a loss.
So who, individually, contributed most to this win for Indianapolis? Find out in this week's report card.
