Peyton Manning will find himself in yet another primetime game this season on Sunday Night Football on NBC. He and his Denver Broncos will take on the Saints at Sports Authority Field at Mile High that night in what should be a fantastic matchup of future hall of fame quarterbacks. Denver enters the game at 3-3 while the Saints are 2-4 following back-to-back victories. Denver should come into the game healthy and refreshed after serving their bye week last Sunday.
Manning and the Broncos seem to be hitting their stride now and are putting things together after having very questionable starts. Their latest victory saw them fall behind 24-0 before finally scoring in the second half. They utilized both offense and defense to get wins and have the edge on the Saints thanks to their defense, which is something the Saints have not had to this point in the year. The Broncos must get better starts, however, and can not bank on coming back from 24 down in one half anymore this season.
The Saints are also finally figuring out who they are and are playing more like their old selves. They still have big strides to make defensively, but seem to have a good feel of the offense again. The quarterback matchup in this contest is one everyone should be aware of and watch closely as these two QBs go blow for blow Sunday night. The game will also be more than half the year in which the Broncos were on primetime. This begs to ask the question of fairness for the team that has had a very unnatural and untraditional schedule this season.
