Thursday Night Football: Colts at Broncos (7:15 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread, More

Chicago Bears

A Colts-Broncos game in primetime just feels like a rip-off without Jonathan Taylor in the lineup, which he won’t be tonight. The Broncos are the slight favorites in Vegas, and still, somehow, even without Jonathan Taylor, I’m feeling like betting on the Colts. This Russell Wilson-Nathaniel Hackett thing has been clunky to start, but maybe this is the week they begin to look like they do on paper.
