The Denver Broncos (3-3) enter Sunday Night's matchup with the New Orleans Saints (2-4) at Sports Authority Field at Mile High coming off a 35-24 victory over the San Diego Chargers followed by a bye week. The Saints enter this road game in Denver having won their past two games, including a 35-28 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last Sunday. The Broncos are currently tied on top of their division in the AFC West, while the Saints are jockeying for playoff position in a tight NFC playoff race. Both teams have high-octane offenses, with the Broncos ranking fourth in the NFL in passing yards and seventh in points per game, while the Saints enter this game ranking first in passing yards while ranking third in points per game. Both defenses have had their struggles this season, with the Saints ranking 29th in points allowed per game, while also ranking 30th in passing yards allowed. Denver ranks 17th in points allowed per game, while ranking 21st in passing touchdowns allowed.  It's safe to say this game will be an offensive shootout.
