On offense Manning will be joined by running back Joseph Addai, TE Dallas Clark, WR Anthony Gonzalez and star wide receiver Reggie Wayne. The only ingredient Indy will be missing on offense is wide receiver Marvin Harrison who is no longer with the team.

The Indianapolis Colts play in South Division of the American Football Conference (AFC) of the National Football League (NFL). The franchise was founded in Baltimore in 1953 as a continuation of the failed Dallas Texans. While there was a previous franchise in Baltimore with the same name, they are not the same. The Colts would win NFL Championships in 1958 and 1959, led by Johnny Unitas. The Colts would win again in 1968 and, in 1969, would lose to the Jets in the first game to be dubbed the “Super Bowl”. The Colts would move to Indianapolis in 1984 as the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts struggled after the move without much success, but with the drafting of Peyton manning in 1998 the team has become one of the true titans of NFL football, winning a Superbowl in 2007.

The Indianapolis Colts play their home games at Lucas Oil Stadium. Lucas Oil Stadium opened in August of 2008, replacing the RCA Dome as the home of the Colts. The 63,000 seat capacity is an increase over the RCA Dome and it features an advanced mechanized retractable roof and large window gate at that provides a great view of the city when open. Lucas Oil Stadium is one of the most modern NFL stadiums and seeing a Colts game there will be an experience to remember.
