PPR Fantasy Football:
Kansas City Chiefs
Matt Ryan and Peyton Manning will get into a classic QB duel tonight which will be great for fantasy football owners.
Week two of the NFL season was filled with plenty of surprises, upsets, big plays and dominant fantasy football performances. So what can we expect in the final game of the week tonight when the Atlanta Falcons play host to Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos.
One of the most intriguing things about this juicy Monday night matchup between a pair of 1-0 teams is the fact that it will be the first time Matt Ryan and Manning face off in the regular season.
Both quarterbacks are coming off stellar performances in their respective season openers as Ryan torched the Kansas City Chiefs for 299 yards and four total touchdowns, while Manning lit up the Stellers for 253 yards and two touchdown passes.
Fantasy football owners should expect solid performances from both quarterbacks as each team should spend plenty of time in the no-huddle, which creates conditions that...
BEST OF MAXIM
If you weren’t watching the game, you’ve probably heard by now. Peyton Manning threw three interceptions in the first quarter of last nights game against the Atlanta Falcons. This is something Peyton hasn’t done since 2007 and something nobody saw coming after his strong showing against the Steelers last week. The Broncos ended up making a fourth quarter push, but couldn’t...
Peyton Manning's second game with the Denver Broncos looked nothing like his first.
Manning threw interceptions on Denver's first three possessions, and the Broncos could not recover from the poor start in a 27-21 loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Monday night.
In a 3-hour, 27-minute game marred by questionable decisions from replacement officials and long clock stoppages...

Denver Broncos News
The Denver Broncos face a tough test in three days when they face the Atlanta Falcons in the Georgia Dome. A win here could set the tone for very solid season, though a loss likely won’t mean much as the Falcons are dominant in their own house. [DenverBroncos.com]
The Playbook guys think Peyton Manning and the Broncos are poised to go 2-0 this week, with Von...
Denver had a late second half rally to get with in a one possession game, but at the end of the game, the unspeakable, horrendous, first half play of the Broncos was too much for Manning and the team to overcome. As always, when the day is over we have to have a winner and a loser and yes, a hero and a zero.Let’s start with the zero today. It would be easiest to point the finger...
After a weekend full of exciting football matchups, I was excited to watch the Monday night game featuring the meeting of two undefeated teams, the Denver Broncos visiting the Atlanta Falcons. Ok, the league has only played one week, but Denver was impressive in beating Pittsburgh 31 to 19 at home on September 9 in the Sunday night game while Atlanta used a dominant second half in...
Michael Turner's DUI arrest last night after his Falcons beat Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos treated fans to another soothing yet empty team statement that tells nothing. Most NFL franchises have the routine down pat. For those that don't, This Given Sunday shares this template of what to say when the fertilizer hits the ventilator.
The [insert team name...
Last week I noted the poor job the Pittsburgh Steelers did in their opener against the Denver Broncos at tackling the catch as they allowed 126 total YAC in that game. Now of course it did not help that Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas had 70 of those yards on the 1 yard screen pass from quarterback Peyton Manning that ended in a touchdown 70 yards later, but you just can&...
Week 2 of the 2012 NFL season is in the books and here are the second set of TOX stats for season along with the year to date numbers for all 32 teams at the bottom. For the second week in a row teams with a +2 TOX stat went 9-1 overall and that brings the year to date number to 18-2 (90%).
Teams with a +1 TOX stat went 3-2 in week 2 and that brings that year to date number to 6...
Week 3 QB Rankings
Cam Newton tops our list this week after he set a career high in rushing yards last week. Superman (SuperCam) looks near impossible to stop when he decides to run it in the red zone and with the emergence of Brandon LaFell, owners can now be confident that Newton has two legit receivers to throw to.
I have RGIII ranked high following week two’s matchup with the...
The Falcons extended their record to 2-0 with a 27-21 win over the Denver Broncos on Monday Night Football. It marks the fifth straight season where the Falcons won their home opener under Mike Smith.
Matt Ryan had another strong performance, completing 24 of 36 passes for 219 yards and 2 touchdowns. He also added 19 yards on 6 carries on the ground. Michael Turner led rushers...
Last week: 5 (+0)
I wasn’t that impressed with the Falcons on Monday Night. I felt like they should have been up 20 given how badly the Broncos started and how much they turned the ball over, but they didn’t capitalize like they should have. They lost the yardage total battle and the yards per play battle and if it wasn’t for those 4 turnovers, they probably would...
