We’ll see the Broncos in their color rush uniforms in this one. Orange on Orange with the old school D helmet. Fans either love or hate these uniforms, but its hard to argue about the awesomeness of that helmet.
Kickoff is set for Thursday, December 14, 2017 at 6:25 p.m. Mile High time at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The line opened strongly in the Broncos favor at 2.5-points on the road against the Colts. That has risen to 3-points in some places, which means Vegas sees the Broncos as strong favorites to win this game on Thursday Night Football.
The Broncos road struggles will be front and center on national television in this game. When asked about the teams struggles on the road, Siemian talked all about how the team needs to start offensively. He’s 100% correct.
“I think we haven’t played with a lead on the road I felt like in forever,” Siemian said. “If we can get off to a good start, I think that helps and obviously the turnover battle is huge in those games. It would be nice to play with a lead and like I said, let our defense go and we keep staying on the field and win time of possession—all of those things.”
Trevor Siemian on the road this season has been frightening to watch. The Denver Broncos on the road against the Indianapolis Colts any year has also been frightening to watch. The Colts are bad, though, and the defense should be able to do its job all game long. I think they do just enough to help the offense put some points on the board to win a close game to get that second-straight win!
Prediction: Broncos 13, Colts 10.
