Richards: Colts won’t face Manning until 2013

If you were looking forward to a matchup with the reconstituted Colts offense in Denver you’ll have to wait a year. The Colts will not face the Denver Broncos during the 2012 regular season and a playoff run for Indianapolis is unlikely. However, they will play the Broncos during the 2013 season:

Denver won’t play at Lucas Oil Stadium this season. But because of the NFL’s quadrennial inter-conference divisional rotation, the Broncos and Colts are due to meet in 2013.

As Phil Richards wrote the words, “quadrennial inter-conference divisional rotation” I picutured Mike Myers as Stuart McKenzie in So I Married an Axe Murderer.
