But so long as it can still put up 7TDs against the Ravens in the Dark, I'd say the spotlight is a big positive for us when it comes to the never-been Chefs.

Chiefs won't win this one. Brokebacks will open all the play book and play like it's their SB.

Man, you guys are slow. I wasn't referring to illumination. Sept nighttime is considerably warmer then Nov nighttime.

Was his best game ever in the cold?

I'm not sure where you're getting this so I went back 10 years and looked.

In the past 10 years the Broncos are 8-5 on SNF games. Before Fox was here we were 5-4 and the Scores were: 21-52*, 31-28, 17-7, 13-3, 35-27*, 23-20*, 34-10*, 34-24, 30-10 (All losses will have an asterisk.) There were two games we laid an egg. The Dolphins and the Chargers the final game of the infamous three game lead blow. In all our wins but one we won by double digits. In the rest of our loses besides those two big loses we lost by one score.

More recently we are 3-1 in SNF since Fox came to town. Our scores have been 31-19, 34-14, 27-49 and 33-39*, with the sole loss being Indy. We've basically blown the door off of every opponent we've faced except one on the road.

Just for funsies I looked at Manning's career record on SNF before being a Bronco (really NBC games because one of them was a season opener on Thursday).

Peyton Manning is 17-5 all time as a colt on SNF. Has never beaten the Chargers on SNF. His five losses are the Bears, the Titans, the Patriots (only loss to Patriots on SNF, he has beaten them four other times) and twice to the Chargers. 38-14, 27-24, 36-14*, 31-10, 31-9, 34-35, 29-13*, 18-15, 41-10, 21-23*, 44-20, 16-10*, 26-21, 27-20, 45-21, 24-07, 24-27*, 9-6, 28-25, 45-24, 27-14, 14-31. Manning seems to play his best football on Sunday night, even in losses. The only time he's played poorly was in games against the Chargers for some reason.

John Fox is 2-3 all time before coming to the Broncos on SNF. Is that what you mean?

Given that the Broncos history before this year is pretty even, and all those loses were on the road, and that we rarely do poorly even in losses, and Manning historically does very well in prime time, and that the game is at home, I fail to see where you're getting that we tend to "lay a huge egg" on SNF. There's no evidence to support that statement, assuming of course laying a huge egg = playing like complete garbage.

If Manning can't start a game and be productive 4 hours later this time of the year due to the temp drop then we have problems.

So is this based on our 7-2 record for night games dating back to the 2012 season? Or just an over exaggeration because we lost last week?

Chiefs won't win because they're frauds. Alex Smith will show his true colors before seasons end.

And Jamaal Charles is breaking down already... Chiefs fans will eventually go back to their incest ways...going back to your own family forums and **** around over there.

Nice attempt to shove that shoe on the other foot, KCSausageJockey, but we all know who will open the play book as if it's their SB. It's an annual tradition with you SisterLovers.

I was referring to night games and I was thinking the Atlanta & Indy games. Wasn't focusing so much on the home aspect only, though the Ravens would be the good one. This is in the Manning era and I was thinking about "big" games, not the Raiders. I wasn't thinking back 10 years, because who cares about Griese, Plummer, et al.
So we have had 3 "big" night games with Manning and, as far as I'm concerned, two sucked ass. I let you debate the implications of the laying an egg phraseology.
Just my feelings on those games. No need to run to the research machine, it's not that serious.
Also, maybe I just remember the losses more , because of the hurting and what not

Also interesting, that -1 was last year in a 30-17 loss.

That trend will continue.

Ah, so it's because we lose 2 night games out of the many we've played... we're now considered a team that lays eggs on night games.

Yup, the typical omane over exaggeration syndrome.

Mile High kicks it up a notch for night games. Not sure why, or what it is. It's just different. And it'll only increase the pressure on the Cheaps. That kind of environment will be completely foreign to them.

Broncos are a bad match up for the Chiefs. We're extreme stout against the run and we'll knock around your QB.

Kevin Vickerson gives Alex Smith a nice shot and he'll be ****tin in his pants for the rest of the game.

Chiefs will be ****ed if Broncos take a 14+ point lead.
