It’s no secret that Peyton Manning has one of the best arms in the game of football. This game will put our defensive secondary to the test. Manning is one of those quarterbacks that, if you show a weakness on a certain part of the field, he will pick that weakness apart with his arm. And with the game in week 3 of the schedule, it will truly show us where our secondary is at early on.

One slight advantage we will have in this game is it’s being played on home turf at Ford Field. The Detroit Lions tend to play well on their home field, just like most other teams in the NFL do. But there is something about the electricity of the crowd that just makes the team really perform. Especially in a prime time game like this, being played at 8:30 pm on Sunday Night Football for the whole country to see.
The Detroit Lions offense should fare relatively well against the defense of the Broncos. While they do have a solid defense, we should be able to exploit weaknesses in their secondary and move the ball pretty readily down the field.
No matter how this game turns out, it is more than likely going to be an exciting game to see. Manning vs Stafford.
