A great match up is set to take place this Monday night between the Atlanta Falcons and the Denver Broncos. Both of these teams will be trying to build some momentum in the month of September, and both teams have a great roster of players under their helm. Both of these teams are also coming of great wins, which should make their game all the more entertaining.
The Falcons are coming into this game off a great win over the Kansas City Chiefs with a final score of 40-24. In their win Matt Ryan went on to throw for 299 yards and had 3 total touchdowns. He started the game off hot and find Julio Jones numerous times down field. Julio Jones went on to record over a 100 yards in passing and had 2 touchdowns. It was a great collaborative effort from them on the offensive front, and they will need the same type of performance if they want to get a win over the Broncos in the Georgia Dome.
The Broncos come into this game also off a great win over the Pittsburgh Steelers with a final score of 31-19. In their win, Peyton Manning went on to throw for over 200 yards and had 2 touchdowns. It was a great performance from him considering he sat out the entire season with the Indianapolis Colts last year; welcome back Mr. Manning. Willis McGahee also made an impact on the game, which allowed for the passing game to open up for Manning. They will need this type of performance on Monday if they want to get a win on the road.
This match up should be a great one for NFL fans across the globe. It will be quarterback vs. quarterback in Matt Ryan vs. Peyton Manning; the young guard vs. the old guard. It should be a shootout from start to finish.
