INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Jan. 9, 2015) -- Colts fans got an early start to the weekend by flying out to Denver Friday morning.

People wearing blue could be spotted at several ticket counters at the Indianapolis International Airport. Some of the airlines are also getting into the playoff spirit. The Southwest Airlines counter is adorned with a Colts banner.

Father-daughter duo Troy and Allison Million were on the 7:10 a.m. flight.

"I just called my son and said we're going to be in town - see if you can get us tickets," said Troy, who has sons living in Denver. "He said yes. He hooked us up with tickets."

Allison said her support is split between the two quarterbacks who will be on the field at Mile High Stadium.

"Manning will always be in my heart," Alison said. "But, I'm from Indiana. I have to cheer for Indiana."

Another fan, Morgan Ragan, said she wanted to make it out to Denver to represent the Indianapolis fans.

"Last weekend, I was at the playoff game and the Colts won so I bought tickets," Ragan said. "I'm going, by myself, to cheer on the Colts."

As of Friday morning, round-trip flights to Denver ranged from $630 to just over $1,000.

Tickets to the actual game were a bit more reasonable. Secondary market websites listed upper level tickets for about $110.  Seats closer to the field were going for $335.

CBS4 is the only place to watch the Colts play the Broncos on Sunday.
