The sun is shining and it looks like a perfect day for a football game at INVESCO Field at Mile High. The Broncos host the Colts for their second home game of the 2010 season, and several players have made their way onto the field.
The team will wear No. 11 decals on its helmets to honor Kenny McKinley in the first game since his passing.
