Broncos destroy Packers to remain undefeated!

The Denver Broncos (7-0) scored a huge 29-10 home victory over the previously undefeated Green Bay Packers (6-1) on last night’s edition of Sunday Night Football.

The victory improved Denver’s regular season record to a perfect 7-0, which marks the first time since 1998 (when they last won the Super Bowl) that the Broncos have started a regular season with seven-straight wins.

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning put to rest any talks that he could no longer throw the ‘deep ball’, as he was able to connect with wideout Demaryius Thomas for 8 catches totaling 168 yards.

Although Manning did not throw any TD’s, the 39-year-old did complete 21 of 29 pass attempts for 340 yards.

Denver was able to run all over the Green Bay’s defense last night at Mile High Stadium.

C.J. Anderson carried the ball 14 times for 101 yards and a touchdown, while Ronnie Hillman added 60 yards on 19 carries plus 2 touchdown scores.

The Broncos defense proved to be the league’s best yesterday evening, frustrating Aaron Rodgers for the full 60 minutes while allowing just 10 points.

With the victory, Denver joins Cincinnati, Carolina and New England as the only undefeated teams left in the NFL.

The Green Bay Packers lost one of their best players yesterday evening in Pittsburgh.

First-team All-pro wide receiver Jordy Nelson suffered what is now confirmed to be a torn ACL in the first quarter of the Packers 24-19 pre-season loss to the Steelers.

Nelson is coming off a career-best season in 2014, which saw him catch 98 receptions for 1,519 yards and 13 touchdowns.

The Packers will now rely on Randall Cobb and second-year wideout Davante Adams to haul-in passes from quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Green Bay also boasts some talented young rookie receivers in the form of seventh-round pick Jeff Janis and training-camp standout Ty Montgomery.

Still, the loss of Jordy Nelson is a significant blow to the Packer’s  Super Bowl aspirations.

Randall Cobb will remain a Green Bay Packer.

The talented wideout has agreed to a four-year deal with the Packers worth $40 million, with $17 million in guaranteed money.

NFL media insider Ian Rapoport reported that Cobb had been offered more money to go elsewhere, but elected to remain in Green Bay.

The signing ensures that quarterback Aaron Rodgers will have both Cobb and Jordy Nelson to throw to through the 2018 year.

Randall Cobb caught 91 receptions for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns last season with the Packers.

The Green Bay Packers will invade CenturyLink Field on Sunday afternoon to battle the defending Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks.

Green Bay is coming off a 26-21 home victory which they earned last weekend over the Dallas Cowboys.

Packers star quarterback Aaron Rodgers was visibly limping the entire game due to his torn left calf muscle, but that didn’t stop the former NFL MVP from throwing for 316 yards and 3 touchdown scores.

Whether or not Rodgers will be able to find similar success against the always dangerous Seattle defense remains to be seen.

In order to defeat the Seahawks, Rodgers will have to perform at his very best while getting solid performances from his supporting cast.

Green Bay running back Eddie Lacy will need to help move the ball on the ground if the Packers have any hope of finding success through the air.

Packers receivers Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb will be in tough against the “Legion of Boom”, but I still think they can put up some decent numbers offensively.

On the defensive side of the ball, Green Bay will have to focus on stopping “The Beast” that is Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch.

If Clay Mathews and company can keep Russell Wilson from utilizing his read-option plays, then the Packers will definitely have a chance to win.

Meanwhile, the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks rolled over the Carolina Panthers this past weekend, earning a 31-17 home victory.

The Seahawks have gone 27-3 in their past 30 games at CenturyLink Field.

Russell Wilson passed for 268 yards and 3 touchdown passes in last weekend’s win over Carolina.

The Seahawks defense has given up an unprecedented 57 total points in their past 7 games.

Marshawn Lynch will be looking to have another “Beast Mode” type of performance against a Green Bay defense who has struggled against the run this season.

Las Vegas currently has Seattle pegged as a -7 point home favorite, with the over/under set at 47 points.

If Rodgers was at full health, I would give Green Bay a legitimate shot at coming away with the win.

Unfortunately for Packers fans, that is not the case.

I predict that Seattle wins and covers the spread, defeating Green Bay by a final score of 31-20.
