Denver vs Detroit: Broncos And Lions Meet in The Motor City

Denver vs Detroit: Broncos And Lions Meet in The Motor City

Denver Broncos: Fortunate to be AFC West leaders

Following one of the worst coached games in NFL history, Denver escaped Kansas City with a 31-24 victory over the Chiefs during Thursday Night Football action in Week 2. With that win, plus a rather lackluster 19-13 victory over the Baltimore Ravens at home in Week 1, the Broncos have to be feeling fortunate that they are still undefeated. As mentioned previously, we aren’t ready to write of the career of QB Peyton Manning just yet but he has certainly lost some zip on his passes. Denver's defense, and in particular the Broncos top rated secondary, may be the star of this contest today.

Detroit Lions: Slow start has the Cats looking for answers in Motown

After looking like world-beaters, when they were up 21-3 on the road in San Diego during NFL Week 1 action, not much has gone right since for Detroit. The Lions have been outscored 49-23 over their last six quarters and the results have been a 33-28 loss to the Chargers and a 26-16 mauling in Minnesota by Adrian Peterson and the Vikings last weekend. The tide turned on the Cats after Matthew Stafford was crushed by Chargers LB Mevin Ingram as the Lions pivot is now dealing with arm, wrist and chest injuries. There's not much behind Stafford and the Lions appear headed for another long season.

Lions vs Broncos NFL Week 3 Prediction: Denver looks to get their lethargic running game on track as the Broncos have rushed for just 130 yards in their first two games. Detroit has allowed 147.5 rushing yards per game so C. J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman should both do some damage here. Detroit’s running game is even worse at 107 total yards as rookie RB Ameer Abdullah is having a tough start to his career. The Lions will need a rushing attack as the Broncos pass defense has not allowed a touchdown, they have seven sacks and have given up a league low 267 passing yards during their first two games. Give us the Broncos with a 500 unit wager on the spread posted at the TopBet sportsbook.
