This Sunday night, the Indianapolis Colts enter their second of four scheduled primetime television appearances. For the first time since 2011, the Colts will host Sunday Night Football from Lucas Oil Stadium. To commemorate their return to primetime football, the Colts have announced Operation Blue Out in Indianapolis. The Colts welcome Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos for a must-see Sunday Night Football showdown.
Under Operation Blue Out, Colts fans are asked to wear their Colts gear throughout the entire week 7, especially on game day. The Colts have teamed up with WTHR Channel 13 and 1070/107.5 FM The Fan to create an entire week full of festivities, giveaways and contests to pump fans up for the big game on Sunday.
