The Indianapolis Colts are set to honor their former longtime quarterback Peyton Manning before the opening kickoff, but it turns out that the tribute will not be as big of a production as Colts owner had initially made it out to be.

According to WISH-TV, the team will be playing the tribute when the Denver Broncos are introduced.

The Broncos are being introduced as a team, so Manning won’t get the appropriate recognition or an individual curtain call from the crowd. Instead, Manning will fade in with the remainder of his teammates while a montage of his time with the Colts will be playing in the background on the jumbotron.

After the game, however, you can expect the crowd to give Manning a huge ovation and they would prefer to get the win and then send him off on his merry way.

If Manning leads the Broncos to victory, his homecoming won’t be as appreciated for the fans. Either way, it’s going to be a lot of fun.
