INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Call them the prime-time Colts. Beginning with Monday night's game in San Diego, the Colts will play four of their next five games in prime-time. That means national exposure for a team that's earned it.

Andrew Luck’s first Monday night appearance conjures up some great memories. His favorite? Brett Favre's big game in Oakland after his father died.
"Playing on Monday will be a lot of fun,” said Luck. "Obviously, Monday Night Football has this ring to it, a feel about it. I remember as a kid always wanting to stay up and watch the second half and being told I had to go to bed, so I hope my mom let's my brother stay up and watch the second half. Certain games I was allowed to stay up for if I really put on a good face. If I got my sisters to join in the group effort, to let my parents let us stay up."
Luck will make some long-lasting memories in southern California next week.
