NFL Week 2 Picks Analysis: Atlanta looked sharp in their win over a weak Chiefs team but the Broncos have been branded by Peyton Manning’s brilliance. The bookies still are not convinced that the comebacking Manning is still an MVP level player if you consider that the Falcons are being shaded as the favorites by a field goal in a game that should be a Pick’em. Manning’s surrounding cast is better than he had in Indy for sometime and he appears to be at least 90% of where he was. The Falcons run D will have to deal with undeerated Broncos RB Willis McGahee who is playing at a high level. The Falcons run game is ordinary with RB Michael Turner in decline and the Broncos pass-rush should be able to pin their ears back and help their playmaking secondary create turnovers. Denver Broncos vs Atlanta Falcons Odds Total is at 52.0 points.
Play a well-balanced Broncos team against a Falcons squad that is being given too much credit for their dominat week 1 win over the Chiefs. Peyton Manning is a master in the huddle and he will find ways to dissect a Falcons defense that can be hit for big plays.
