Mile High Huddle Predicts Denver Broncos vs. Indianapolis Colts Week 2

The Mile High Huddle analysts give their scores and predictions for the Week 2 tilt with Indy.

After a thrilling Week 1 victory over the Carolina Panthers, the Denver Broncos have had plenty of time to prepare for a home match-up with Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts.

Indy's defense may be depleted by injury, but if history is any indicator, they'll put up a good fight against the Broncos. Here's what the guys think will happen in Week 2.

Season Record: 0-1

Despite earning a victory in his first career start, Trevor Siemian had a very uneven performance and was bailed out by his receivers on multiple inaccurate throws. If Graham Gano hits the field goal in the closing seconds, the narrative would have been of how poorly Siemian played. Trevor was lucky to have only turned the ball over twice in the opener,—his luck is not meant to last.

There is now tape on Siemian, teams will look to take advantage of his many shortcomings and will likely have little trouble doing so.

In week 2, the Broncos face an Indianapolis Colts team that has historically owned them. Andrew Luck is healthy again and is 3-1 against Denver. The Broncos defense will abuse him once again, but he gets the last laugh while leading the Colts to a 4th quarter comeback.

Following a week clouded in accusations of being a dirty defense, the Denver Broncos come out and drop the hammer against Andrew Luck and the Colts much like they did last year.

But this year, the Broncos come out with a win. Indy can't stop C.J. Anderson and the Broncos' running game, allowing Trevor Siemian to hit a few big plays down the field as the Colts load the box.

The Broncos face one of their conference nemeses. If the Broncos can keep Andrew Luck in the pocket and get decent interior pass rush, they could blow out the Colts. However, Indy has a penchant for getting their dander up for the Broncos, so I don't expect them to go quietly into that good night.

This will be a barn-burner. With how bad Indy's defense is, Trevor Siemian and C.J. Anderson should both have productive days and find pay-dirt more than once. They will be the difference in the Broncos winning this game.

Nothing has gone well for the Colts since they opened the season against Detroit. Their secondary is depleted, their defensive line will be without Henry Anderson and possibly Kendall Langford, but 12 will always keep it close.

That being said, I think Siemian and the boys will shrug off the last dozen years of ownership Indy has had on Denver and grind out a win in the fourth quarter behind C.J. Anderson.

If the Broncos can frustrate Luck, keep him in the pocket, and break through the front of that pocket, (the defensive interior has to step up) they have a chance to get him.

The Broncos offense is going to find success against the Colts defense. They're set up well against the pass because their secondary is so under-manned and you can run on this Colts defense, it's not deep. I think Denver's going to pull one out.

Bold Prediction: C.J. Anderson will have 125 yards rushing and two touchdowns. Von Miller sacks Luck twice and adds six tackles.

Denver has a complete showing in the first half with C.J. Anderson gaining chunks of yards on the ground and Trevor Siemian playing conservative, mistake-free ball as Denver goes up by two scores into halftime.

Indy comes out throwing in the 2nd half and Luck gets it going late but a TD clinching drive in the fourth seals it for Denver as they move to 2-0 on the year.

There you have it. MHH thinks the Broncos will win it by a count of 6-1. Tune in next week when we'll all be patting ourselves on the back if Denver wins or making excuses, should they lose.
