On Pro Football Now, Super Bowl champion Amani Toomer, Sports Illustrated NFL writer Andrew Perloff, and Sports Illustrated senior writer Don Banks discuss how the Colts can beat the Broncos in the Divisional playoff round on Sunday night


Denver Broncos (12-4) vs. Indianapolis Colts (12-5)

The Denver Broncos (12-4) host the AFC South-champion Indianapolis Colts (12-5) on Sunday in an AFC Divisional Playoff Game. Kick-off is set for 4:40 p.m. EST at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

The Colts look to advance to the AFC Championship Game for the first time since the 2009 season. Overall, Indianapolis holds a 2-0 record against Denver in the postseason, with both wins coming at home.

In the AFC Wild Card game against Cincinnati, the Colts claimed a 26-10 victory. The offense totaled 482 net yards, the third-highest single-game total in team postseason history. Andrew Luck completed 31-of-44 passes for 376 yards, one touchdown and a 104.0 passer rating, marking his third straight game with 300-plus passing yards, which is the second-longest streak in NFL history. Wide receiver T.Y. Hilton recorded his third straight 100-yard receiving game in the postseason, while running back Daniel "Boom" Herron posted a game-high 141 scrimmage yards (85 receiving, 56 rushing). Defensively, Jerrell Freeman notched career highs of 16 tackles, 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble.

Denver is coming off a first-round bye week, as they hold the No. 2 seed in the AFC. Peyton Manning finished the 2014 regular season with 4,727 passing yards, 39 touchdowns and a 101.5 passer rating. Wide receivers Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders both finished with 1,000-yard receiving seasons, while LB Von Miller and DE DeMarcus Ware both surpassed the 10.0-sack plateau in 2014.
