We're back for another week of Sunday Night Football. Maybe it will help us ignore the crap the 49ers put on display earlier today. The Denver Broncos are hosting the Green Bay Packers on NBC, with the game set to kick off at 5:30 p.m. PT. We'll have other 49ers threads, so let's use this primarily for SNF chatter.
This game is pretty huge, with both teams entering the game at 6-0. The Broncos have looked less impressive as an unbeaten, but it is easy to forget they have the No. 1 defense in the league. They face a stiff test against the potent Packers offense. This is the kind of matchup that can make for a fun chess match.
The Packers are a field goal favorite, which is kind of big. The Broncos have not been a home underdog since Peyton Manning's second home game with the team back in 2012. They were an underdog to the Houston Texans and failed to cover in that one. I have them covering in this one, but it is not going to be an easy one against the Packers offense.
