Week 7 NFL preview: Broncos vs. Colts

Two of the best teams in the AFC meet on "Sunday Night Football" when Peyton Manning returns to face the team he carried to a Super Bowl victory. Andrew Luck and the new-look Colts look to hand Denver its first defeat of the season. Matt Ufford previews the game and makes his pick.

Peyton Manning vs. Andrew Luck. John Fox vs. Chuck Pagano. Jim Irsay vs. sanity. This equestrian battle has all the story lines.

The high-flying Broncos offense looks to keep its record-breaking momentum going as Manning heads back to his old stomping grounds in Indy. Denver's defense gets a shot in the arm with the return of Von Miller from his six-game suspension, but the offense, already missing left tackle Ryan Clady for the year, will be without right tackle Orlando Franklin.
