The Broncos are eight point favorites at home, bumping up from the original line of seven points.
Because it matters so much, I’ll give you my official score prediction for this game:
I think the Cardinals, while worthy of the respect of the Broncos with a 3-0 record, are going to run out of a bit of luck with Drew Stanton starting at quarterback. This is a very good team coming into Denver, and they shouldn’t be discounted by any means. But Peyton Manning is unbeaten after bye weeks, and the Broncos are simply the better team here playing at home.

I think Arizona can keep it close for a while, but I see the Broncos absolutely running with this one in the end. We’ll see what happens.
- Peyton Manning needs just one touchdown to reach 500 for his career. Terrance Knighton would like to catch it.
- The Broncos are fully healthy going into this game. Every player on the active roster practiced at some point or another this week.
- Linebacker Danny Trevathan will start at LB, but could be on a ‘pitch count’ of sorts coming off of a knee injury
