Exclamation Brees vs Peyton: It will be fireworks!

It’s not everyday you get to see two of the league’s best quarterbacks go head to head against subpar pass defenses.

We should get to see that on Sunday night because Drew Brees of the Saints and the Broncos’ Peyton Manning are starting to get on rolls, and each opposing defense has had its share of struggles.

Brees, after a shaky start, has completed 67 percent of his passes for 11 touchdowns against two interceptions in the past three games, as the Saints lost by a point at the Packers, and won back-to-back games to get to 2-4 on the season.

Manning has been even better, competing 75.9 percent of his passes with nine touchdowns against one interception. Manning’s also coming off a bye week, where he should be licking his chops to take on a Saints defense this is 29th in points allowed (30.3 points), 30th in passing yards (304.5 yards), and last in total yards (465.5 yards).

The Broncos’ defense has been much better statistically, but in recent weeks it was ripped apart by the Texans (436 total yards) and the Patriots (444), and falling behind the Chargers 24-0 at halftime before the Broncos rallied for 35 second-half points. So Brees and the re-charged Saints should be ready.

And everyone else should be ready for a scoring explosion.

Roman Harper picks off manning!! Going to call it right now

May call me crazy but Harper has two picks in the last two games, even though the refs screwed it up vs bucs
