Gazette columnist Paul Klee, who is in Indianapolis for Sunday night's Broncos-Colts game, gives the advantage to Indy in one key area. Here's a report card from Klee:

INTANGIBLES

Lucas Oil Stadium is loud. The Broncos practice with piped-in noise at Dove Valley. "I've never been in a stadium that's as loud as what we practice in every day," Fox said. Advantage: Colts

OFFENSE

Coordinator Adam Gase said he'd like to incorporate Trindon Holliday into the offense - but there's no room. "It's hard to get him in there with the guys we have," Gase said. Advantage: Broncos

DEFENSE

Is the Colts defense superior to the Broncos defense? So far, yes. But the Colts defense also must go against the NFL's best offense. How can you give the Colts the advantage? Advantage: Broncos

SPECIAL TEAMS

The first kicker to win four Super Bowls, Adam Vinatieri will be the rare kicker to reach the Hall of Fame. The Broncos prefer Sunday's game doesn't come down to a kick. Advantage: Broncos

COACHING

This is still the regular season, and John Fox has coached the Broncos to 17 consecutive regular-season wins. That earns the coaching advantage in The Gazette's Report Card. Advantage: Broncos
