Colts 2013 Schedule Released

The Colts schedule for 2013 came out this evening.  This year, along with their divisional games, they will face the AFC West and NFC West, as well as battles against fellow second-place division finishers, Cincinnati and Miami.  The Miami game will be a rematch of last year’s 23-20 Colts victory that saw Andrew Luck throw for a rookie record 433 yards along with two touchdowns, as Indy outscored the Dolphins 10-3 in the second half.  (continued after the jump)

Indianapolis will face some interesting matchups, including former Colt quarterback and Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh’s 49ers on September 22.  They will also face off against the Seahawks on October 6, for whom Colts backup QB Matt Hasselbeck is the franchise leading passer.  That game will also feature a matchup of Luck versus Russell Wilson

Finally, the matchup against Peyton Manning and the Broncos won’t be in week one, as many fans had hoped (That’ll be the Raiders – an interesting game for DHB).  They’ll face Denver at home for a Sunday Night Football game on October 20.  Indianapolis fans, long known for their class and politeness, will undoubtedly give Manning a warm reception, but emotions will certainly be mixed for many in attendance and watching on TV. 

It will be exciting to see how the new pieces fit and how the Colts can build upon their surprising success from last year.  Now, we just have to wait another…three months and three weeks until the first preseason game.
