(INDIANAPOLIS) - The Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos will play one of the most anticipated matchups in the upcoming NFL regular season when the teams meet on October 20th at Lucas Oil Stadium.
The prime time, Sunday night showdown will feature Colts' rookie sensation, Andrew Luck, against the man who led the Colts into a golden era of professional football, Peyton Manning.
The Colts turnaround season in 2012 earned the franchise a total of four prime time games, including a Monday night matchup at the San Diego Chargers on October 14th, a Sunday night game at the Houston Texans on November 3rd, and a Thursday night game at the Tennessee Titans on November 14th.
The Colts open the regular season at Lucas Oil Stadium on September 8th against the Oakland Raiders and follow in week two at home against the Miami Dolphins.
A week three matchup at the San Francisco 49rs will have Indianapolis facing Jim Harbaugh, a member of the Colts Ring-of-Honor as a player and current head coach of the NFC champion 49rs.
They'll play against Bruce Arians' new team when they travel to the Arizona Cardinals on November 24th. Arians led Indianapolis to the playoffs as interim head coach last season, leading to his first full-time head coaching job with Arizona.
