The Denver Broncos hit the road in Week 8 to take on the Indianapolis Colts. It will be a battle between two teams heading in opposite directions.

The roller-coaster ride that is the 2019 Denver Broncos continues this week as they take their 2-5 record on the road to take on the 4-2 Indianapolis Colts in Week 8.

While Laurie, Jess, and I mostly talked about the long-term future of the franchise in the SSB Podcast above, we did talk a bit about the upcoming Broncos-Colts game. They both sided with most of Broncos Country in that they think Denver has little to no chance in this game, but I decided to go against the grain here with an upset Broncos win. We’ll have to see if that optimism is misplaced.

Game Preview

After a slow start, the Indianapolis Colts have turned their 2-2 record into a 4-2 record with an impressive road win against the Kansas City Chiefs and a home win over the Houston Texans - both of whom are playoff contenders.

That doesn’t bode well for the Denver Broncos, who have more questions than answers for their 2-5 record. Despite two impressive wins over the Los Angeles Chargers and Tennessee Titans in recent weeks, their last game was a 30-6 drubbing at home on Thursday Night Football against the Chiefs backup quarterback.

The Broncos defense has played well regardless, since fixing much of their early season issues. That means this game will be won or lost based on how well Joe Flacco and the offense plays against a strong Colts defense. Which means we won’t see much confidence from fans heading into this game. That offense simply doesn’t inspire anyone right now.

Here is how to watch.

Odds

The Broncos are not has heavy underdogs as you’d expect at just 5.5-points. It’s almost as if Vegas is begging for money to go the Colts way. It doesn’t necessarily mean Denver will win, but it could mean that Vegas expects them to play Indianapolis close.

Matchup History

The matchup history between these two teams is all about Peyton Manning. Before Manning, the Broncos were 9-2 all-time. However, while Manning was in the league as both a Colt and a Bronco, Denver went just 3-11 against Indianapolis. However, they’ve won two straight since Manning retired, so maybe that’s a sign of things returning to the way they were pre-Manning.
