The release of the 2013 NFL schedules was delayed, but we know what’s coming: a showdown between the Sheriff and the new kid on the block. That’s right, Peyton Manning and his Denver Broncos are looking to build off their incredible 2012 season and win the Super Bowl. However, the road to the cold title game will go through Indianapolis, where Andrew Luck is making Colts fans forget about No. 18. (We know, that’s blasphemy to the Indy faithful).
In case you’ve been living under a rock, Manning was released by the Colts so the team could avoid paying him a $28 million roster bonus after he had four neck surgeries and missed the entire 2011 NFL season. Fortunately for the Colts, they had the No. 1 overall pick that year and used it on Luck, a former standout and Heisman Trophy candidate from Stanford. To say his rookie year was a success is a drastic understatement as he broke every rookie passer record in the book, including the most wins by a No. 1 overall pick (11), which resulted in a playoff appearance for Indianapolis. However, he hasn’t had to face the man he replaced, but he will this season in The House That Peyton Built.
So will the future Hall of Famer teach the young gun a thing or two on his way to another MVP-caliber season or will the former No. 1 overall pick prove once and for all that he is indeed the one chosen to take over the thrown? Comment below and let us know!
