Peyton Manning will try and lead the Denver Broncos to their second straight victory in another prime-time game this week. This time, Manning and the Broncos will face the Atlanta Falcons on Monday Night Football. The game is set to kickoff at 8:30 p.m. in Atlanta. The Broncos are coming off a win against the Steelers last Sunday night while Atlanta got a victory against Kansas City last week.
Manning was stellar in his debut with the Broncos as he helped his team rack up 31 points while throwing for 240 yards and two touchdowns. Manning got a whole lot of help from his defense as well. Defensively Denver gave up just 284 total yards and held Kansas City to under 20 points. It was certainly apparent that Denver was effective on both sides of the ball, which was evidenced further by the fact that they played the Steelers.
The Falcons played very good last Sunday as well though, and should not be taken lightly. Atlanta gained nearly 400 yards of total offense and scored 40 points against the Chiefs. Defense was another story, however, as Atlanta was thrashed by the Chiefs offense. The Falcons defense also gave up nearly 400 yards including 152 yards on the ground. This is certainly not a recipe for success, but the two teams should.
PREDICTION: DEN 30 ATL 27
