When two future first-ballot Hall of Famers meet head-to-head, it is definitely a must watch game. That is probably what the decision makers at NBC were thinking when the schedule was released showing Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints visiting Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos in late October. The Broncos defense may rise up in similar fashion to the San Diego game, but I am not going to count on it. In addition to a lot of points scored, I would expect many passing yards to be accumulated by both teams, making two particular owners in every Fantasy Football League very happy. If passing yards were fireworks, I would expect to see a very grand show.
