The Indianapolis Colts plan to honor its former and current Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning during their Week 7 game at Lucas Oil Stadium. Details of the tribute have yet to be finalized.

The Indianapolis Colts plan to honor Peyton Manning when the quarterback and his Denver Broncos are in town for their Week 7 game.

This is what Colts owner Jim Irsay told USA Today Sports' Jarrett Bell on Oct. 9. The team is "planning a tribute for Manning to acknowledge his remarkable contributions during 14 seasons with the franchise," per Bell. 

Even though details of the tribute are still hazy, Irsay says the bottom line is it will be a great one. 

"We're going to have a great tribute to him. It's going to be something where you go into it wanting to have a lot of fun, where you love Peyton as a Colt fan, but now we're competing against him.

"For this one day, we're competitors. You look for a great game and that's the main thing.

"It'll (fans' reception for Manning) be tremendous. They will cheer, as deserved. When he comes back on the field, I think there will be a boisterous standing ovation, as there should be. He means so much to our franchise.

"It's going to be crazy, but mostly it'll be fun. I hope it's just a great game." 

As a writer covering the Broncos, the Denver Post's Mike Klis says the tribute "may be tricky because it's difficult to believe Manning would break from his pregame routine to watch a video montage of himself."

For this, Klis suggests introducing Manning along with the rest of the staring lineup, similar to what the Tampa Bay Buccaneers did for John Lynch in 2004 and the Philadelphia Eagles for Brian Dawkins five years later. 

Manning was drafted first overall by Indianapolis in 1998. He led the Colts to 11 postseason appearances in 13 seasons, including two Super Bowls in the 2006 and 2009 NFL seasons.

The Colts wound up being Super Bowl XLI champions when they beat the Chicago Bears 29-17 on February 4, 2007 with Manning under center. 

He is off to his best regular-season start in years. He has already passed for 1,884 yards for 20 touchdowns and just one interception through Week 6 of the 2013 NFL season

Manning's 75.8 percent completion rate and 136.4 QB rating are both career bests, helping the Broncos to a 5-0 start.

Coaching to Blame for Denver Broncos' Defensive Struggles Sunday

Nov 4 2014 7:45am CST | Source: Bleacher Report

In a 43-21 rout by the New England Patriots, the Denver Broncos had issues on offense, defense and special teams. It’s not often that a team as good as the Broncos loses, and it’s hard to point the finger at one particular unit as to why. Although it was a team loss if there ever were one, the most concerning performance was that of a defense that came into the game as one of the best in the league—ranked sixth in points per game allowed thr ...
