Broncos double-digit favorites on Sunday night vs. winless, depleted Giants

Broncos double-digit favorites on Sunday night vs. winless, depleted Giants

Injuries and a tough schedule are two reasons why things could get much worse for NY before they get better.

Allowing only 260.8 total yards per game, the Broncos have the best total defense in the NFL.

Eli Manning will attempt to avoid the second 0-6 start of his career. So, if the Broncos get a big lead that will force more Giants passes, or the Giants simply choose to keep the same run-pass ratio, the Broncos have to predict where Manning will try to deliver the ball. Beckham Jr. would undergo surgery Monday night, effectively ending his season. Sterling Shepard hasn't practised and won't play this week because of an ankle injury. The Giants will also be without Brandon Marshall and Dwayne Harris for the rest of the campaign. Not the most encouraging group of pass catchers. The Giants will play with a reconstructed corps of wideouts that includes Roger Lewis, Jr., Tavarres King, Travis Rudolph and Ed Eagan. They will face a nightmare matchup this week against Denver's "No Fly Zone" defence. If Denver doesn't clean up some of the glaring issues they've shown so far this season and play up to the level we've seen in the first three wins, things could get hairy. While NFC teams are a combined 1-10 SU on the road against Denver since 2012, the Giants are a solid 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games against the AFC. As a result, expect to see the Broncos use a combination of players to defend Engram (safeties Justin Simmons and Will Parks, and cornerbacks Aqib Talib and Bradley Roby immediately come to mind). Meanwhile, there isn't one running back on New York's roster that has reached 70 yards rushing in a game this season.

The Giants are 28th in the National Football League with an average of 16.4 points a game, prompting McAdoo to field a question about why he believes the Giants can score without Beckham.

The lack of a run threat will allow linebackers Von Miller and Shaquil Barrett to key in on Manning and generate pressure against one of the worst offensive lines in the league. And New York's defense, which held the team up many times past year, has been a liability.

Unless the Broncos stop themselves, they should be able to grind out a workmanlike win.

Site to get 'more aggressive' policing tweets — Twitter's Dorsey
An individual's (mostly women) skin colour has become progressively more targeted in the recent years. Twitter's top executive appears to have gotten the message from the #WomenBoycottTwitter movement.

Siemian has struggled when facing pressure.

While Trevor Siemian's played well this year, we saw against the Bills that if he's down and under duress, he's not afraid to force a throw.

Broncos: Denver is averaging 143 yards per game with C.J. Anderson and Jamaal Charles leading the way. "And I think we have a good football team".

Landon Collins said the entire team was completely surprised by the events that unfolded.

The Giants still have one of the NFL's craftiest quarterbacks in Eli Manning and he can make teams pay for not being focused. NY was a co-favourite to win the NFC East just one month ago.

Giants travel to Denver for the first time since '09, a 26-6 Sunday night loss. If they don't like Webb, they will have a very high pick in the 2018 draft to select a future quarterback. With a trip to Denver coming this week, followed by a visit from the Seahawks, and Kansas City coming to town a few weeks later, it doesn't seem like the Giants record will get much better anytime soon.
