The Colts are coming off the bye last week, but beat the Broncos, 39-33, the week prior.

The offense is producing 344.7 yards per game, while the defense is giving up 350.7 yards per game. Quarterback Andrew Luck has thrown for 1,574 yards and 10 touchdowns to lead the offense, but he lost receiver Reggie Wayne for the year to a knee injury in the win over Denver.
