The Indianapolis Colts will travel to Atlanta for the first time since 2007 to face the Falcons. Game time is set for 1 p.m. at the Georgia Dome.

The contest will mark the 16th all-time meeting between the teams in the regular season, with the Colts holding a 13-2 advantage. The last matchup between the teams came on November 6, 2011 when Atlanta defeated Indianapolis, 31-7.

Last week, the Colts had their bye week after claiming victory over the previously undefeated Denver Broncos, 27-24, in Week 9.

The Colts offense, led by quarterback Andrew Luck, totaled 365 yards (245 passing, 120 rushing) and 27 first downs against the league's No. 1 ranked defense. Luck completed 21-of-36 passes for 252 yards and two touchdowns.

Kicker Adam Vinatieri, appearing in his 299th career game, converted 2-of-2 field goal attempts and three extra points. His 55-yard field goal in the fourth quarter proved to be the game winner.

Defensively, the Colts held Denver to 35 rushing yards. Safety Mike Adams and cornerback Darius Butler each recorded interceptions off of Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning.

Following Sunday's game, the Colts will host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Lucas Oil Stadium on November 29.
