NFL Week 7 -- Broncos at Colts
So this is big: Peyton Manning returning to face the team that let him go -- on his recommendation, of all things -- with his current squad undefeated and looking like the NFL's undisputed best. Yes, it's the Denver Broncos at the Indianapolis Colts in what might prove to be a playoff preview.
Browns send Richardson to Colts
That was unexpected. On Wednesday, the moribund Cleveland Browns sent 2012 No. 3 overall draft pick Trent Richardson to the Indianapolis Colts, in exchange for a first-round pick in 2014. Letting a promising 22-year-old running back go like that? Crazy ... unless you (1) are going into full rebuild mode, after an 0-2 start featuring 16 points scored, and/or (2) don't think Richardson, who has been slowed by injury issues, will live up to his draft position. The Colts, though, don't fall into that latter camp. It could pay off quickly.
