With Aqib Talib serving his one game suspension, Bradley Roby is more likely penciled in as the starter opposite of Chris Harris Jr. This will be Roby’s first NFL start. So all eyes will be on him.
Remember that he returned the fumble for the game winning touchdown against the Chiefs in the last meeting, so he does have a knack for making some huge plays when needed. He made some last season and he will look to make some more this season.
I believe that he will be up to the task of starting for the veteran while he sits out of the game. Just keep an eye out and play your game.
There was some good vibes around Demaryius Thomas this week as his mother was released on Tuesday. Even though she will not be able to see him in person this weekend, I can see Thomas having a big game this weekend.
In the last meeting against the Chiefs, he recorded over 100 yards receiving. Half of them came on the final drive of the game. It would not surprise me at all if Manning went to him late if the situation called for it.
I am hoping that Thomas brings the heat against the Chiefs this week. With his mother released, I am going to make one of my bold predictions now and say that he goes over 200 yards receiving for the game and three touchdowns. This would be the game to do so.
