Colts Face Raiders In Oakland

Last updated on Sunday, December 16, 2007

(OAKLAND) - The Indianapolis Colts will return to action today with an opportunity to wrap up the AFC South and the No. 2 seed in the AFC Playoffs.

With a victory over the Oakland Raiders and a Jacksonville win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Colts will secure a first-round bye, which appears to be to ideal situation for a team looking to heal.

Five Colts starters will sit out Sunday's game with the Raiders: Defensive end Robert Mathis, safety Antoine Bethea, defensive tackle Raheem Brock, right tackle Ryan Diem, and receiver Marvin Harrison.

Mathis and Bethea both suffered sprained knees in last Sunday night's 44-20 victory over the Baltimore Ravens.
