I think Denver will get their 35 points in the first half and rest Manning. They might not cover the spread.

The Jags are going to be atomized.

Has an NFL team ever scored 50+ in three straight weeks? May not happen if the Jags don't score a couple times and Denver calls off the dogs. Then again, you can try to grind out the clock against Jacksonville to be classy and still ended up being gifted 21 points off turnovers by whatever warm body they have under center.

Anger v. Holliday will be a real battle to watch...

Nope, the Broncos became the 4th team to do it back to back weeks (Seahawks last year are the only other post-merger to do it)

What's the line at? Rumor was we were going to open 28 point favorites.

That's a huge spread. Seriously that's like an Alabama versus Georgia State type spread. And with the defensive fail we showed, I am not surprised people are taking the Jags to cover.

Biggest spread in NFL history.

Good chance to rest some starters this week.

Vegas' goal is to set the spread so exactly half of the money is on each side of the line. When you bet, you don't quite get 2:1 odds (more like 1.9:1, so you bet $100 to win $90 approximately) so Vegas eats up that ~10%.

NFL is different from college because all you need to do is win, there is not a ranking scheme. BCS requires great teams to absolutely blow out poor teams or you drop in ranking. I would be very surprised to see the Broncos cover the spread with John Fox as our coach instead of Carrol/Belichek.

If the game literally started with the jags up 28-0 I'd love to bet the Broncos. But after yesterday and with Indy coming, we just treat this with a get out with a comfortable win and hope no one gets hurt mentality. We can really choose what we want the score to be. But I think 35-10 or 17 is pretty likely. Bad bad bad betting game.

I'd pass on this one.

Jags are obviously pretty crap, but if we are resting guys on D, they can probably score a few too. I think the broncos win easily, but im wouldnt feel comfortable spotting 28

I would take the points. 28 is a lot of points. If Jax scores 17 points they could cover easily.

Agreed. How many points a teams scores is not necessarily dictated on how bad the opponent is, but by HOW MUCH you're winning by.

We scored 51 yesterday because we had to.

We won't need nearly that many points this week vs. the Jagwads.

I could see a 37-10 win......we'll take our proverbial foot off the gas, whereas yesterday we could not.

I am probably alone in this, but I get nervous about crap like this. Big spread, everyone predicting a blowout against a horrible team, etc.

I just don't want the team treating this game any different than any other game. Stomp on them, and rest if you get the chance but don't overlook anyone. Can't **** with karma.

10 points is a huge spread on most days in the NFL.....that spread is going to shrink all week

I dont think the Broncos will treat this as a bye week like fans are. I think the defense will have something to prove.

And even if karma was a real thing, this wouldnt apply.

Comparing this year's Jags team with one that made the playoffs and was led by a 3 time probowl QB? We could have Brock QB this one and field our entire practice squad and we'd still be favored by 10.

This isn't Shanahan/Cutler/Plummer/Whoever, this is Manning. They might not drop 40 on them because they don't have to, but they're not losing this game.

I hope you're right

Edit: Jesus Christ people I am not saying I think we lose. I am saying, it would be foolish for the team to overlook any team.
