Broncos to face Indianapolis Colts in AFC Divisional game next week
DENVER – Bring on the Indianapolis Colts.
After Indy’s decisive 26-10 win against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, the Colts will advance to the next round of the NFL playoffs, facing the Denver Broncos in Denver on Jan 11.
Public tickets to the game sold out in less than an hour.
The AFC Divisional matchup pits Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning against the team that unceremoniously cut him in 2012 while he was struggling with neck problems. It will also lead to inevitable comparisons between Manning and Andrew Luck, the man who replaced him in Indy.
The Broncos last played the Colts on Sept. 7, defeating them 31-24.
The winner of the game will advance to the AFC Championship, facing the winner of next week’s New England Patriots vs. Baltimore Ravens contest.
