We nailed two picks at 1:00, lost two at 4:00, and closed out Sunday of week 2 with a win thanks to the 49ers over the Lions. Tonight, we’re given an oustanding Monday Night game between the Atlanta Falcons and Denver Broncos. Is this one worth betting on?
DENVER BRONCOS @ ATLANTA FALCONS (-3)
The spread has not moved on this line at all, standing pat at Falcons (-3). I was expecting the majority of money to come in on the Falcons, but that just hasn’t been the case. The public loves Peyton Manning this week on the road and would rather take him with a field goal. We have a near 50-50 split on where the bets are being placed tonight. The public is actually favoring Denver (+3) with 53% of the bets coming in on Peyton Manning and the Broncos.
Both teams are coming off big week 1 wins. The Falcons went on the road to destroy the Kansas City Chiefs 40-24 and the Denver Broncos took care of business at home by beating the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-19.

I understand the economy is rough, but converting an old Peyton Manning Colts jersey into an Andrew Luck jersey isn’t a very good luck, as you see from the picture above.
It would have been better to just wear the Manning jersey and not alter it, or buy a Luck jersey.

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...
Getty ImagesAs star quarterback Matt Ryan prepares to lead his Atlanta Falcons against the Denver Broncos in a potentially great Monday night football matchup, Ryan can only feel like he’ll be looking in the mirror somewhat.Growing up in the Philadelphia suburbs, Ryan wanted to be like Peyton Manning in every facet of his game. Ryan was in seventh grade when Manning was drafted...
Each Tuesday during the 2012 fantasy football season Mike Harmon and John Halpin hop on the internet to talk all things football in their weekly Fantasy 15 podcast.
This week Harmon and Halpin recap the latest referee shortfalls, Peyton Manning's ineffectiveness and Michael Turner, boom or bust.

If the start of both football seasons has taught me anything, it’s that I am out of shape. I don’t mean my fat ass, because that’s an obvious statement. I mean my ability to day drink. Hoo boy, I am not 22-years old anymore, and that is just depressing. I actually found myself shaking my proverbial fist at college students this weekend for being too drunk. The hell is wrong...
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...
Not kidding, I spent five minutes at this screencap from @pbsmith7 trying to figure out what the f*ck this voting system was. Who am I supposed to be voting for? What number do I enter? And they expect the morons who vote on this garbage to figure it out?
Anyway, good game from Peyton Manning; 3INTs and a 58.5% QB rating. In other NFL news, how bad are the Kansas City Chiefs...
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...
The Denver Broncos (1-0) trot over to the Georgia Dome on Monday night to face the Atlanta Falcons (1-0). Both teams started the season with wins last week as Denver defeated Pittsburgh 31-19 and Atlanta took down Kansas City 40-24. As I said in my write-up last week, Monday Night Football is the prime time for NFL teams. It’s a chance to show off to the entire league what you’re...
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...
Checked last night’s Pirates game at 8:30: rain delay. Checked the game again at 9:30: rain delay. Checked one last time at 10:30: rain delay…decided to finish watching the Falcons defense do what the Steelers could only dream of against Peyton Manning.
Seriously though, the Pirates and Cubs actually played last night? Who starts a game after almost a four-hour delay? First...
