Will the Denver Broncos Beat the Atlanta Falcons Tonight? [POLL]
Today’s Survey of the Day is a simple question, but don’t let the fact that you bleed orange and blue detour you from the fact the Atlanta Falcons are a darn good football team and just may give the Broncos a run for their money on Monday Night Football. Now, that being said, will the Broncos beat the Falcons tonight?
One week into this new adventure, Peyton Manning largely put aside any doubts and actually caused the hype to rise a bit. With a performance reminiscent of his glory days, the four-time MVP guided Denver’s hurry-up offense with his usual skill, precision and arm gyrations, leading the Broncos to a 31-19 win over Pittsburgh in the season opener.
Led by quarterback Matt Ryan, the Falcons looked equally impressive in their first game, blowing out the Chiefs 40-24 in Kansas City. New offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter seemed intent on weaning Atlanta off its reliance on a power running game so the quarterback could take advantage of his many skills and myriad weapons.
This is the first meeting between these clubs since Denver’s 24-20 road win Nov. 16, 2008, when then-rookie Ryan threw for 250 yards, no touchdowns and one interception.
The game is tonight at 6:30pm on ESPN.
