My only problem with primetime games is it always takes me a while to come down enough to go to bed. Either too excited or too mad.

Re: 6 pt dogs at Denver

My gut feeling on this Denver game is that somebody is gonna get a cheap score, an easy score -- a turnover on the 2, or somebody scoops up a fumbled kickoff and runs it in for a touchdown, that type of thing. Both teams and both QBs will do what they always do, stack up yards and drives and heroic plays and the occasional wild, out-of-the-blue interception; and that stuff will kinda cancel each other out. Both teams are scoring machines, but the cheep unxpected scores, or complete freak plays and one-in-a-million screwups, of balls bouncing off helmets and into somebody's arms who is running the other way, muffed kicks, those types of plays are potentially gonna be the difference maker.

Who can dig themselves the shallow-est hole.
And climb out with 4 seconds remaining.

There you go; your preview.

If Hicks can get some pressure up the middle maybe our ends can get some results. If Peyton is left alone it will be a long night.

Re: 6 pt dogs at Denver

Like has been said already; collapsing the pocket is the key to the win. Like Phillip Rivers, Manning is not too mobile and can't run from Galette, Wilson, and Hicks...

Re: 6 pt dogs at Denver

Denver has one good defensive showing - against Oakland.

I fell like we're gonna score. I also fell like they're gonna score. It'll be a shootout. Could be a special teams play or team with the last possession kinda game...

ABSOLUTELY NO EVIDENCE that the D is close - but I have a hunch they show up. Not dominant, but respectable.
You have to believe at some point or another they end up holding someone to 10 pts or under.

I mean hell, under Gary Gibbs bend dont break style of defense, some teams were held to 10 or less pts, some games under 20 pts.
