Colts continue playoff run with trip to Denver.





The Indianapolis Colts (12-5) will take on the Denver Broncos (12-4) in an AFC Divisional matchup on Sunday afternoon in Colorado. Kickoff is set for 4:40 p.m. EST at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

The Colts will look to advance to the AFC Championship Game for the first time since the 2009 campaign. Overall, Indianapolis holds a 2-0 record against Denver in the postseason, with both wins coming at home.

In the AFC Wild Card game against Cincinnati (1/4/15), the Colts claimed a 26-10 victory. The offense totaled 482 net yards, the third-highest single-game total in team postseason history. QB-Andrew Luck completed 31-of-44 passes for 376 yards, one touchdown and a 104.0 passer rating, marking his third straight game with 300-plus passing yards, which is the second-longest streak in NFL history. WE-T.Y. Hilton recorded his third straight 100-yard receiving game in the postseason, while RB-Daniel "Boom" Herron posted a game-high 141 scrimmage yards (85 receiving, 56 rushing). Defensively, ILB-Jerrell Freeman notched career highs of 16 tackles, 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble.

Denver is coming off a first-round bye week, as they hold the No. 2 seed in the AFC. QB-Peyton Manning finished the 2014 regular season with 4,727 passing yards, 39 touchdowns and a 101.5 passer rating. Wide receivers Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders both finished with 1,000-yard receiving seasons, while LB-Von Miller and DE-DeMarcus Ware both surpassed the 10.0-sack plateau in 2014.
