With slumping television viewership impacting the NFL this season, Thursday night's matchup does not have the league office dancing in celebration.
The 4-9 Denver Broncos travel to Indianapolis to take on the 3-10 Colts. Some fans of each club, both knocked out of the playoffs, may be hoping for a loss to improve their draft position in 2018.
In any scenario, 2017 has been a lost season for both teams. Each has a quarterback issue. Both turned the ball over and displayed numerous mental breakdowns. So, Thursday night's game will be about playing for pride.
