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.

Fantasy Football Week 9 Rankings: Projections for Players with Matchups We Love

Halloween is a pretty amazing holiday, but certain behaviors would just be weird at a different time in the year. Can you imagine asking a random stranger for candy in the middle of the summer?

Vic Fangio talks secondary adjustments, Glenn Dorsey, Chris Borland

Oct 31 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: ninersnation

San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Vic Fangio met with the media on Thursday. The most interesting part was his discussion of the secondary, both in terms of injuries, and adjustments once players are healthy. We've got a transcript for you. Does it look like you're going to have LB Patrick Willis back in your defense this week? "It's questionable right now." Going back over that Broncos game, do you wipe away some of that since he was ou ...

Darrelle Revis Once Again Making Dominance Look Easy

Oct 31 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Darrelle Revis is once again challenging receivers at the line of scrimmage, playing with leverage and showing the closing speed that has him back in the mix as one of the top cornerbacks in the NFL. Today, let’s break down the tape on Revis and focus on the technique that is allowing the veteran to win one-on-one matchups in the New England Patriots defensive schemes. After doing a four-game study (Bengals, Bills, Jets, Bears), here are my notes ...

Denver Broncos vs. New England Patriots: Complete Week 9 Preview for New England

Oct 31 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Few individual matchups have elicited as many thrills as Tom Brady vs. Peyton Manning, and Sunday's contest should mark another chapter in arguably the greatest rivalry in American sports.  Of course, while the quarterbacks will occupy much of the game's discourse, the contest is most intriguing because it pits two of the league's most well-rounded teams against each other.  The Denver Broncos and New England Patriots have had distinctly different campaigns.   The former has pum ...

Detroit Lions Reversing Old Fortunes, Are Legit Contender in NFC

Oct 30 2014 6:16am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Don't look now, but these aren't your same old Detroit Lions anymore. After decades of futility—which include zero Super Bowl championships and zero playoff victories since 1991—it appears as if the worm has finally turned. A magical Motown metamorphosis is in progress, and it signifies an evolution from the hunted to the hunter. The old Lions would regularly snatch defeat from the jaws of victory—usually in horrifying fashion—l ...
