Lets talk Titans
 
I think it's great that it's gonna be cold (said from the comfort of Sunny South Carolina). We all know that this passing offense is unstoppable in warm weather but I'm sure we all have doubts how that translates when the thermometer drops - specifically Mannings arm strength with the nerve thing.

This is a great opportunity for Manning and the Broncos to not only practice in frigid conditions but to compete against a competent defense at home.

Tennessee is giving up 7.1 yards per attempt (15th), and a composite QB rating of 79.0 (8th). They have 31 sacks (16th), and have allowed just 8 passing TD's (1st), but have just 10 ints (20th). The most passing yards they have given up all season was 280, 46 of which came in OT.

rushing wise, they give up 4.1 yards per attempt (14th), but have surrendered 16 rushing TDs (31st)

Overall, they are the #11 scoring defense and #9 yards defense.

Their defense is decent but not great. This is a perfect tune-up opportunity for the playoffs.

Ryan Fitzpatrick. Game over.

He's good for a turnover or two at terrible times....

They're a pretty good road team - 3-3 on the road, and they were in all of those games. They have a below average offense. So if we can get a few scores, we should be ok. Their defense can play well enough to let them hang around. They're a dangerous team, but they are in the middle of a tough road trip coming off a big loss, so we got them at a good time.

they are a tough team to finish off.

That seems like a tall order for the 2013 Broncos.

Should I start Monte Ball on my fantasy team? Or will it go back to Knowshon?

Do the opposite of what your better senses indicate. Like yesterday people sat Decker...

Ball is fun to watch run. I hope he is over the dropsies, he could be really exciting and headaches for a Defense for the 7-8 years.

cmhargrove 12-02-2013 07:51 AM

I could definitely see this one being close at the half, but hopefully we remain true to form and pull out the stops in the second half. I'm not taking this team for granted, and certainly think that you have to respect their talent at RB, even if Chris Johnson is having a down year. I don't want to be the team he goes off on.

manning has averaged around 2 TO over the last 4 games too.
BTW, the ONLY good time for a turnover is a hail mary at the end of the half.

Will what go back to Knowshon?

I think we are going to continue to see both RB's used from now on. We need to keep Knowshon fresh as much as we can. He will still get his touches, But Ball is going to get 10-15 as well. I have both on my team in 1 of my leagues, I started both yesterday... along with Decker and Manning. My team goes as Denver goes.

Jesterhole 12-02-2013 08:14 AM

Dogfight. Will be close all game.

WolfpackGuy 12-02-2013 08:21 AM

Tougher game than most people think.

Denver needs to jump on them early and put the game in Fitzpatrick's hands.

Rabb 12-02-2013 08:39 AM

Their QB went to a smart school, we have no chance.

Irish Stout 12-02-2013 08:49 AM

The radar shows purple over Denver, we have no chance.

mwill07 12-02-2013 09:00 AM

Their QB's beard will keep his chin warm, we have no chance?

Unfortunately "practice" isn't going to help Manning with his sub freezing temperature issues.

He can light you up if you let him. He can throw the Defense gifts too. He is a wildcard for sure.

DAN_BRONCO_FAN 12-02-2013 09:32 AM

thank god this isnt the mighty chiefs we are playing aka the 2nd only to the 2000 ravens team.

I still don't understand why people point to the cold as the main reason we lost against Baltimore and NE. Yes, we are not AS GOOD in the cold, but its not THE REASON we lost. Its such a simple man's argument.

cutthemdown 12-02-2013 09:43 AM

I think this is a tougher game then the Chiefs. Titans defense is better then people think and they have some young talent at WR. Without big Broncos mistakes they can't win but it might not be a huge blowout.
