Who are the Colts taking on for three preseason games to begin the 2024 NFL campaign?

In addition to the regular season, the Indianapolis Colts also officially announced their 2024 preseason schedule which features the following three exhibition games:

Week 1 (August 11th): Denver Broncos, 1 PM EST

This one is interesting because the Colts actually travel to take on the Denver Broncos during Week 15 (December 15th) of this year’s regular season. Still, it’s a fair question of whether starters will even play, and what Indianapolis shows the Broncos should be rather vanilla regardless—given the later regular season matchup. Perhaps the 12th overall pick in this year’s draft, Bo Nix, could see some early preseason QB reps for Denver though.

Week 2 (August 17th): Arizona Cardinals, 7 PM EST

Former Indianapolis Colts defensive backs coach Jonathan Gannon makes his return to the Circle City for an exhibition game, but all eyes will be on the son of legendary Horseshoe wideout Marvin Harrison Sr.—if he even plays in this one. Marvin Harrison Jr. was taken with the 4th overall pick in this year’s draft and is one of the best wideout prospects to come out in recent memory—drawing some rave comparisons with his speed, hands, explosiveness, and route-running to his Hall of Fame father.

Week 3 (August 22nd): At Cincinnati Bengals, 8 PM EST

The preseason finale is with a routine exhibition foe, the nearby Cincinnati Bengals. The Colts may still have a gritty taste in their mouths from the last time they were in the home of Skyline Chili, when they lost 34-14 in blowout fashion during Week 14 of last year. Running back Zack Moss may be in uniform again, only this time for the Bengals—as he departed Indy in free agency. Preseason isn’t the best time to seek revenge though, and the Colts would ultimately rather leave healthy here than winners.
