The time everyone’s been waiting for has finally arrived. It’s NFL kickoff week and the Denver Broncos host the Indianapolis Colts this Sunday night in front of a national television audience.
Both Patriots Nation and Broncos Country are looking forward to Brady/Manning XV. The rest of the planet will probably enjoy the game, too.
The Denver Broncos are the NFL’s hottest team, winning seven straight games, including Sunday’s 31-23 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. When they fly to Oakland this week, Denver will face their polar opposites in the Raiders, who have lost five straight.
While the Broncos are well versed at playing against pass-heavy offenses, the Panthers’ run-first offense will cause adjustments.
A.J. Green is one of the NFL’s top receivers and he’ll be a lot to handle for the Broncos’ secondary Sunday, as will the many other weapons Cincinnati and Andy Dalton have at their disposal.
The Patriots are predicated on offense and Josh McDaniels has New England hitting on all cylinders.
Houston has long been known for their awesome offense, but it’s the daunting defense that’s been noteworthy so far this year.
Pittsburgh’s defense presents a tough test for Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos offense, while the Steelers’ offense is strong as well.
