Colts open season against Manning’s Broncos

INDIANAPOLIS – The Colts will open this season at AFC champion Denver in a Sunday night showdown pitting quarterback Peyton Manning against his former team.

It’s one of four prime-time games for the defending AFC South champs, who received their schedule Wednesday.

Indianapolis opens the season Sept. 7, then plays host to Philadelphia in a Monday night game Sept. 15. The Colts will play at Houston in a Thursday night game Oct. 9 and will play host to New England in another Sunday night game on Nov. 16.
