Denver vs. Indianapolis: Broncos' Week 1 Game Preview

For the third year in a row, the Denver Broncos will open their season in prime time.

Indianapolis and Denver met on Sunday Night Football in Week 7 last year, and the two teams will open the 2014 season in the same spot. Denver will be hoping for a good result as it kicks off its season at Sports Authority Field. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. ET.

The Broncos are coming off a successful preseason, looking every bit like a team hungry to return to the Super Bowl.

The Denver offense should put up plenty of points, as it has in recent years, but the defense will look much different.

Free-agent acquisitions DeMarcus Ware, Aqib Talib and T.J. Ward will play their first games in Denver in an extended role, and we may get a glimpse of a much more physical Denver defense.

If there has been a team that has had the Broncos' number in recent years, it has been the Colts. Indianapolis has won the last six meetings between the teams. Denver's last win in the series came in January 2005.

We have a closer look at this game, including key matchups and other news to get you ready for the Broncos beginning their defense of the AFC championship.
