This will be a good one as Peyton Manning goes up against Andrew Luck for the first time in the postseason. The two quarterbacks squared off in Week 1 to begin the season, with the Broncos coming out on top 31-24. The Broncos were up 24-0 at one point before the Colts came storming back, only to simply run out of time.

Luck is coming off of a smooth playoff performance against the Bengals, while Manning and the Broncos' last taste of the postseason was the big letdown against the Seahawks in last year's Super Bowl. With both teams being offensive powerhouses, you never know what's going to happen in a game like this. I'm picking this one based on my rooting interests, but I don't dislike the Colts: Luck is a hell of a player. Broncos 27, Colts 23
