PLAYERS: Peyton Manning
If Peyton Manning is sore, he's not saying. If his confidence is waning, he'd be the last to let anyone know. Back on the practice field following his first loss as a Denver Bronco, Manning wouldn't offer much Wednesday when asked if the hits he took against Atlanta had any lasting impact. ''I don't really get into that,'' Manning said. ''I've never really answered that question before. So, I'm full participation in practice.'' As for those three interceptions he threw in the first quarter against the Falcons - well, Manning says, these things happen. But, he insists, they certainly didn't diminish his confidence heading into Sunday's game against Houston. ''It's not deterred at all, if you're insinuating that,'' he said.

Thursday Night Panthers vs. Giants Pick Against the Spread

We escaped Monday Night with a win thanks to our Monday Night teaser special with the Broncos (+10) & Over 44.
