The Indianapolis Colts will host the Denver Broncos on Thursday Night Football in Week 15. The game time is set for 8:25 p.m. ET on Thursday, Dec. 14, at Lucas Oil Stadium.

The contest will mark the 24th all-time regular season meeting between the teams, with the Broncos leading the series, 13-10. Denver hosted Indianapolis in their last matchup on Sept. 18, 2016, and defeated the Colts, 34-20.

Last week, the Colts traveled to Buffalo to face the Bills and were defeated in overtime, 13-7.

Weather proved to be a major factor in the game as the teams combined for 97 rushing attempts and 390 rushing yards in snowy blizzard conditions.

Both teams were held scoreless in the first quarter. Buffalo scored the first points of the game in the second quarter and entered halftime with a 7-0 lead.

In the final minutes of the fourth quarter, quarterback Jacoby Brissett led the Colts' offense on a 19-play, 77-yard drive that resulted in a threeyard touchdown pass to tight end Jack Doyle. Indianapolis converted a two-point conversion try, but the play was called back due to penalty. Kicker Adam Vinatieri would connect on the PAT to tie the game up at 7-7.

In overtime, the Bills scored on a 21-yard touchdown run to earn the win.

Running back Frank Gore carried the ball for a single-game career-high 36 times while totaling 130 yards on the ground.
