See our TNF Week 6 Viewer’s Guide!

Welcome to Week 5 of the NFL regular season! This week starts with a game between the AFC South and West with Indianapolis Colts (1-2-1) at Denver Broncos (2-2) at Empower Field at Mile High. It should be a good match-up.

About This Colts-Broncos Game

This matchup is between teams at or near the .500 mark looking to give some positive consistency to their seasons.

The Colts enter with a 1-2-1 mark but are only 1/2 game back in the AFC South as the Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans are joint atop that division with 2-2 records.

Meanwhile, the Broncos are right at .500 at 2-2, a game behind the AFC West-leading Kansas City Chiefs (3-1).

News from the Colts camp is that not only is Head Coach Fran Reich on the hot seat, but so is General Manager Chris Ballard, or at least he should be as well. Some view him as not being as aggressive in his role with the team as he should be.

Among the biggest news from the Broncos side is the team needing to adjust to the losses of outside linebacker Randy Gregory and running back Javonte Williams. Meanwhile, quarterback Russell Wilson got “dinged up” during the team’s 32-23 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday but is expected to play on Thursday.

The betting lines generally have the Broncos as a 3.5-point favorite with the moneyline Colts +140 and Broncos -165. But this is quite a change from where they mostly opened at Broncos -2.5.

The total (over/under) of around 43.5, meaning that the consensus is for Denver to win by a score of around 23-20.
