After many weeks of pulling off last minute victories, the undefeated Denver Broncos return from the bye week to take on the Green Bay Packers who are also undefeated as well. The Packers will be the Broncos toughest opponent so far this season.
With the Broncos six victories, they did not have to deal with a quarterback like Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers will not make those costly mistakes that the other signal callers have made in the previous matchups against the Broncos.
On the same token, the Packers have not faced a defense that can change the outcome of a ball game at a moment’s notice such as the Denver Broncos. You cannot give the Packers credit for the victory over the Seahawks because they were without All-Pro Safety Kam Chancellor.
The Broncos must generate some offensive production to defeat the Packers in this contest. If Peyton Manning and the Broncos fail to do so, the Packers will make them pay for it. The Packers can defeat an opposing ball club in some many different ways. If the passing game is not on its A-game, they can run the football successfully with Eddie Lacy and James Starks.
Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning cannot turn the ball over to the Packers defense in this ball game, because unlike the other teams the Broncos faced, the Packers know how to capitalize on an opposing quarterback mistakes. Even though he is having a down year in regards to statistics, I still believe Peyton Manning can still put fear into opposing defenses. Expect Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers to dial-up the pressure on Peyton Manning this Sunday.
If his strategy is successful, the Packers will have a chance to win this football game. The Packers have the personnel to rattle Manning in linebacker Clay Matthews, outside linebacker Julius Peppers and safety HaHa Clinton-Dix. My prediction for this football game is that the Packers keep it close, but Aaron Rodgers will make that one mistake that will catapult the Broncos to their seventh victory of the season.
