I'll be writing a weekly column for NBC Sports this year taking a statistical look at the Sunday Night Football matchup. After the Colts got to him four times in last year's game, the first one is on Peyton Manning's ability to avoid sacks.

Let's see how many of you can do this without Trent Richardson on your team.
