The first game of the weekend is here. After almost being forced into a coma from all of the football watching last week, I was certainly ready to get back to the couch. This one features two very talented defenses in the Broncos and the Ravens. What it will come down to is the quarterback play as the savvy veteran Peyton Manning looks to defeat Joe Flacco, who is in a contract year.
I personally see the Broncos taking this one. Vegas has the game at a ten point spread in Denver's favor -- and for good reason. They are hitting on all cylinders right now.
So come talk about the game here in this thread. Before you do, please keep these rules in mind.
1. While we allow a bit more when it comes to language, if you can avoid swearing, it would be appreciated.
2. We still do not accept any personal attacks. Be passionate, but don't be out of line.
3. "Rec" your favorite comments. We will pull some comments to share with the whole site (What did Cardinals fans say?)
4. Do not ask for or post links to illegal streaming feeds of the game. Gamecasts, Slingbox, all that is cool. But sharing such links puts the entire network at risk of being shut down. If you do it, the comment will be deleted. If you persist, you will unfortunately be banned.
5. Have fun! Get to know each other!
