TNF: Broncos vs Colts Game Thread

Thursday Night Football, Week 15. In a truly dreadful matchup the 4-9 Denver Broncos travel to Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana to take on the 3-10 Indianapolis Colts. Prime time football late in the season doesn't get much worse than this.

The Denver Broncos come into the game off their first shutout in more than a decade courtesy of your New York Jets. The Broncos still have a very good defense, but they have been horrible as a team this year, primarily because of their disastrous quarterback situation. Prior to the Broncos' win over the Jets last Sunday this team had lost eight straight games.

The Indianapolis Colts come into this game with a bottom 3 offense and a bottom 3 defense. That's not good. The Colts have lost seven of their last eight games and have not scored more than 17 points in a game in nearly six weeks.

There may not be much good reason to watch this game tonight, but there is a good reason for Jets fans to have a rooting interest here. The Colts have Andrew Luck potentially coming back next year; depending on his health they may not be in the market for a quarterback. The Broncos, on the other hand, are one of the few teams that may be even worse off at quarterback than the Jets. They will definitely be in the market for a quarterback in 2018. Jets fans should be rooting for the Broncos to win this one so that they have a chance of slipping behind the Jets in the 2018 NFL draft order. Go Broncos.

It's the Broncos and the Colts in a Thursday Night AFC matchup only a diehard could love.

Enjoy the game everybody. As always we ask that you neither ask for nor post illegal streaming links.
