Game Preview: Throw out the historical comparisons when the Broncos and Colts meet. Only one name on these two rosters matters. Peyton Manning is now 1-2 against his former team, including January’s AFC Divisional playoff loss. After Manning struggled last year, many wondered if the game was a passing of torches from Manning to Luck. That hasn’t exactly materialized in 2015, as Manning has dominated once again while Luck is experiencing his first career slump.
In today’s broadcast, be on the lookout for mention of a family connection between these teams. Vernon Davis was traded from the 49ers to the Broncos this week, the same week Denver is scheduled to play against his brother, Colts corner Vontae Davis. It’s the first time the brothers have faced off in the NFL.
