Battle of the No-Huddle in MNF Week 2 [Monday Night Football Live Thread]

Blog Photo - Monday Night Football Week 2 Live ThreadOne team will come out of this game 1-1, the other will head into week 3 undefeated. It's difficult to tell in just one week of regular season football what to expect from a team, and especially individual players. That said, this is what we know:

Last week Peyton Manning looked pretty close to the Manning we grew to love (or hate) over the 14-year span of his career with the Colts. With two touchdowns and over 250 yards, it's almost as if he was on the field rather than the sideline for an entire season. He was even sacked a couple of times and it didn't faze him in the Broncos victory over the Steelers. 

Last week Matt Ryan had a great showing against the Chiefs. He had 299 passing yards and threw three touchdowns on top of running one in himself. He was sacked only once.

Blog Photo - Monday Night Football Week 2 Live ThreadCan we expect an equally well played game from both quarterbacks tonight? Both teams will be working with the no-huddle offense, and both QBs are skilled in that respect. Manning is fairly consistent, but what about Matt Ryan? If he comes out tonight playing as well as he did last week, this game could very well be a shootout. 

Fantasy Owners: Looks like Roddy White and Demaryius Thomas will both be playing tonight. 

If the defense decides this game, my money's on Denver. What say you? Q it up here for week 2 of MNF!

The officiating is embarrassing. Please pay the refs and get them back.  I am glad I didn't order Sunday ticket this year.

This officiating is not the best I've ever seen.

Games like these make me SOOOO happy I don't play fantasy football anymore. Of course, I would have drafted Ryan over Manning this year, with the questions surrounding Manning & his neck. But still...my twitter feed is out of control with people freaking about Manning. hahahahahaha

This is just insanity. What was I saying about putting my money on the Denver D in this game?

I'm liking Peyton and the Broncos on this one. If the Broncos can shut down Micheal Turner, they have a good chance of winning.

I think it's going to be a battle till the end. As you had stated both are good QB's and I think they have fairly equal defenses. I personally have my Q bucks on the Bronco's but that's because I favor them and am willing to risk it. wink My only concern is the field and fan advantage for the Falcons.
