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.

San Francisco 49ers: How QB Drew Stanton Could Change the Arizona Cardinals Game

Sep 18 2014 12:10am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Arizona Cardinals played the San Francisco 49ers close twice last season.  Their first encounter in San Francisco was competitive until the middle of the fourth quarter, and the rematch in Arizona came down to a field goal as time expired.  With the Cardinals sitting alone atop the NFC West at 2-0 and a loss technically meaning the 49ers no longer would control their own fate in the division, this is about as big as a Week 3 ga ...

Steven Jackson's Updated 2014 Fantasy Outlook Heading into Week 3

Sep 17 2014 10:30pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Fantasy football at its very core is about risk-reward assessment. Peyton Manning is the best week-to-week quarterback because he consistently allows owners to reap rewards without much risk. Same goes for Jimmy Graham, Calvin Johnson and LeSean McCoy. But leagues are almost never settled by the very best players; they're settled by the teams that are able to hit big in the middle rounds. Smart owners rolled the dice on Josh Gordon la ...

The same holds true for Week 3, as fantasy football players try to guess which reliable players bounce back from early struggles and which breakout stars are for real.
