It doesn't surprise me the COlts only had one prime time game. They suck and are going to suck for a few years, even with Luck, though I do think they will be substantially better than last year just based on a better QB and better coaching. ANd I don't really are too much about the primetime games. I actually prefer the Sunday 1 PM games. Last year or the year before, they only had like 5 games all year Sunday 1 PM. I set my Sunday's around that schedule, so the night games mess me up.
What surprises me is Denver has 5, mostly due to Manning. You could argue they are a playoff team and had some momentum from last year, but most of their attention last year was TEbow related. ANd they got rid of him.
Manning's influence on a team's popularity is immense. We will see if he can still play (I think he can) and if he can make Denver a better team, but they've already jumped up on the national radar in terms of popularity alone.
