The San Francisco 49ers come to town this Sunday night to take on the Denver Broncos.

Both teams are on hot streaks. Both teams are Super Bowl contenders.

Does it get any better than this?

Nevertheless, Sunday’s excitement does raise some questions, as extra efforts will need to be made on both sides of the ball in order for Denver to improve their winning streak to three games.

In such a prominent matchup, players not named Peyton Manning or Demaryius Thomas will have to step up. Last Sunday, guys like Ronnie Hillman defied the football Gods and clearly surprised the New York Jets.

Who will emerge from the shadows this time to help lift the Broncos to victory?
