Indianapolis Colts at Denver Broncos (-3)
The Colts are banged-up and can be missing several starters on a brief week. The largest name in fact is the star running back, Taylor.

Indy’s offense can have to operate in a different way without him within the lineup. On defense, the Colts can be without Blackmon, Leonard and Lewis. Leonard just made his 2022 debut last week against the Titans, but suffered a head/face injury. All 4 Colts players who were ruled out for Thursday night didn’t practice in any respect this week.
