Rant-O-Matic: Red Sox vs. Rays, Broncos vs. Falcons
Here’s the latest edition of Rant-O-Matic for September 17, 2012.
While this season has been nothing but a disappointment for the Red Sox, the Rays still have a chance to make the postseason–but it certainly won’t be easy.
Heading into Monday, Tampa Bay sits five games behind the New York Yankees for the division lead and four games behind the Baltimore Orioles for the final Wild Card spot in the American league. After emerging as one of the hottest teams in August, the Rays have lost seven of their last 10 games–so a game against the Red Sox may be just what they need to get back on track with a few weeks remaining in the regular season.
Both the Broncos and Falcons are coming off impressive wins in Week 1 and Monday’s matchup is all about the battle at quarterback. Peyton Manning answered any questions surrounding his neck that kept him off the field for the entire 2011 season against the Pittsburgh Steelers and looked like his old self running the no-huddle offense.
As for Matt Ryan, the Falcons quarterback arguably displayed the most impressive performance from Week 1 against the Kansas City Chiefs after throwing for 299 yards and recording four touchdowns (one rushing). Julio Jones and Roddy White will keep Denver’s defense busy throughout the entire game, but the real question will be whether or not Atlanta’s depleted secondary can contain Manning and company.
