Colts at Denver Broncos, Sept. 7
Easily the most-anticipated game of the season, any matchup between Andrew Luck and Peyton Manning is going to draw eyes. But to start the season, on Sunday Night Football? Batten down the hatches, folks.
Colts vs. Cincinnati Bengals, Oct. 19
Last season, the Bengals destroyed the Colts at home late in the season, winning 42-28 in a game that wasn't as close as the final score. Now, the Colts get to host and will be looking to prove their worth as one of the AFC's elite teams.
Colts vs. New England Patriots, Nov. 16
Another revenge game, the Colts come off their bye to face the Patriots on Sunday Night Football. They lost in the playoffs in January, but the Colts hope to boost their playoff hopes with a home win. The Patriots are projected to be one of the top two teams in the conference, and a win for Indianapolis would be a boost from which to launch the second half of the season from.
Colts vs. Houston Texans, Dec. 14
If the Colts are in any kind of trouble near the end of the season in terms of making the playoffs, they will need a strong divisional finish. They can keep their undefeated record against the Texans at home and pick up a key divisional win at the same time.
