It's Monday morning as I type this and I've just watched the Indianapolis Colts end the Denver Broncos' win streak with a 39-33 win.

The game was Denver Broncos' quarterback - Peyton Manning's - return to Indianapolis after he was released in the spring of 2012.

As I had noted in previous posts, I was on the fence. Manning is my favourite player of all-time but the Colts are the team I support. I wanted both parties to do well in the game.

I can't help but feel this isn't the last time Manning will go up against Andrew Luck and the Colts.

And when I write that, I mean it's going to happen sooner than next season and beyond.

If the Colts do end up toe-to-toe with the Broncos in the playoffs, there's only one way it will go.

A Broncos win.

I hate to count the Colts out but there is this gut feeling I have that Manning will avenge Sunday night's loss in the post-season.

After writing the above, I stumbled upon an NFL.com article where it looked at what the scenarios would be 'if the season ended today'. It appears my gut feeling was more than that. Both teams would meet each other in the wild card round of the play-offs if it happened to be January.
