Peyton Manning can make history vs. Colts on Sunday

Five-time NFL MVP can become the league's winningest quarterback and all-time pass yardage leader in visit to Lucas Oil Stadium.

Nobody can say Peyton Manning's Sunday return to Indianapolis doesn't have added meaning.

Aside from the reality that seeing him in a Denver Broncos uniform tears out the hearts of Colts fans, the five-time NFL MVP can become the winningest quarterback in league history by passing Brett Favre with a 187th career victory. And he can supplant Favre on the NFL's all-time passing yards list with 284 against the Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Manning brings with him a 7-0 Super Bowl contender and the league's No. 1 defense. He faces a Colts (3-5) team in dire straights with a three-game losing streak.

The Colts ended Manning's season last January in the playoffs. He's 1-2 when facing his old team, including a 39-33 loss at Lucas Oil Stadium in 2013, when the Broncos arrived with an umblemished 6-0 record.

At 39, this could be the final time Colts fans see him play in Indianapolis, where he called home for 14 years through 2011 and was instrumental in leading the franchise to a Super Bowl XLI triumph in 2007.
