Broncos Vs. Steelers: An Indianapolis Reunion On Sunday

There will be a lot of familiar faces in Denver for Peyton Manning's first game for the Broncos. Not only will he be throwing to wide receiver Brandon Stokley and tight end Jacob Tamme, two of his former teammates on the Indianapolis Colts, but their former coach, Tony Dungy, will be part of the NBC broadcast team.

On Tuesday, Dungy visited with his old players on the Broncos practice field and talked to the Denver Post about how he sees their season going:

"My guess is they will play them to take away the run early and see if [Manning] can do it. I think they'll be forced to throw early, and my guess is he'll throw pretty well - and then when the defense starts to play pass, those running backs will get going."

That's certainly the hope in Denver, and if Manning can return to 100%, the Broncos should have one of the best offenses in the NFL.

Of course, there's no way to know whether he'll be able to do that, which is why the game will be such a must-see TV event on Sunday.
