THURSDAY NIGHT LIGHTS
IT’S MILLER TIME (WEEK 15)
BEAST DOME NATION.
The Broncos and Colts meetup with a couple of the same problems.
- Offense is struggling.
- Neither team is able to come close to replacing Peyton Manning.
This should have been the NFL Game where Peyton got his jersey retired. The matchup between both of these teams is really for bragging rights more than anything. The Broncos nor the Colts are playing for anything much outside of where they draft next Spring. The Colts on offense have become an offense that just does not produce. With T.Y. Hilton seeing Talib and Chris Harris Jr. the passing game is not due to create any fireworks for the Colts. The run game is strong for Indy, but the Broncos Defense is still one of the best in the game and the Hall of Fame Frank Gore will have trouble finding many running lanes. Add Von Miller and that pass rush to the equation, good luck Indy.
The Broncos are a team that gave up on Siemian too early when they were still in the Playoff hunt. The Brock + Paxton Experiement tanked the Broncos right out of the playoff picture and now they are playing for pride. Both Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas have just enough in the tank for one legendary Thursday Night Performance. Trevor Siemian who does make some really nice throws and has excellent touch, can tear up this Colts Secondary if he has time. The time should come today as the Colts pass rush will not make much of a dent.
In the end, the Broncos will control this game on defense forcing the Colts to punt nearly every drive. The Broncos offense is good enough to capitalize on the opportunity and if they can score 17 Points, they will win this game.
