With the Denver Broncos vs. Indianapolis Colts matchup on Sunday night, there’s no need to post the TV map. Everyone gets this game!

At 17 straight regular season wins, the Broncos are currently tied for the fourth longest winning streak in NFL history. With a win against the Colts, the Broncos would tie the New England Patriots (2003-2004) for the third-longest win streak in league history. They’ve won eight straight games on the road dating back to last season. The Colts are 4-2 on the season, with their most recent loss coming last week to the San Diego Chargers. They’ve never lost two in a row in the Andrew Luck/Chuck Pagano era.

In their 19 regular season meetings, the Broncos own an 11-8 advantage (Home: 6-3, Away: 5-5). However, the Broncos have lost four straight games to the Colts.

This isn’t just Peyton Manning’s homecoming. It’s tight end Jacob Tamme’s as well. Tamme played for the Colts for four seasons (2008-2011). Tackle Winston Justice also played for the Colts in 2012. Broncos offensive assistant Bob Cooter and offensive consultant Alex Gibbs coached in Indianapolis for three seasons and one season, respectively.

The Broncos will face a familiar foe in cornerback Cassius Vaughn, who played for Denver for two seasons (2010-2011).

Colts head coach Chuck Pagano has some Colorado ties. He grew up in Boulder.
