The speculation is finally over. Peyton Manning will return to Indianapolis on Oct. 20 for Sunday Night Football on NBC. Manning spent 13 seasons with the Colts and there will be more than a few eyes turned to the city of Indianapolis to watch No. 18 take on his former team. The Colts will be coming off a short week (see below) prior to the Week 7 meeting with the Broncos.
After a year in which the Colts saw just one primetime spot (a Thursday night game in Jacksonville), Indianapolis finds itself in the spotlight on four different occasions this year. All four contests come in a one-month span beginning on Monday, Oct. 14 with a game @San Diego. The other three primetime games are as followed:
Oct. 20, Denver, 8:30 (NBC)
Nov. 3, @Houston, 8:30 (NBC)
Nov. 14 (Thursday), @Tennessee, 8:25 (NFL)
