A matchup like this is a rare treat.  If this game meets expectations, it could end up as the best game of the 2015 NFL regular season.

Green Bay Packers (6-0)

Aaron Rodgers leads his team into Denver with an undefeated record, good for first place in the NFC North.  Teddy Bridgewater and the Minnesota Vikings are closing in with a 4-2 record, but we don't want to get sidetracked with disgruntled "woulda, coulda, shoulda" rants about quarterbacks the Houston Texans passed over in the 2014 NFL Draft.  I mean, to get leap-frogged like that just makes me want to....never mind.

The Packers are playing very complimentary football and seem poised to make a deep run in the playoffs in search of another championship.

Denver Broncos (6-0)

Peyton Manning has struggled at times this season with signs of physical decline, but the Broncos keep finding a way to win.  They remain undefeated and enjoy a commanding lead in first place in the AFC West.

The Oakland Raiders are in second place and are starting to look like a truly competitive team, but they are still three games behind Denver.  Derek Carr looks like the real deal, but I don't want to draw too much attention to that, because there is nothing healthy about pointing out how foolish it was for Houston to avoid drafting this player based on his surname.  I mean, if he's an NFL franchise quarterback, it doesn't matter what his last name is, especially if you are deep in the bowels of quarterback h....ugh, never mind.

Where was I?  Oh yeah, tonight's game between two of the best teams in the league.  Someday perhaps we can say the same about the Houston Texans....someday.

Here is the stats comparison of the two teams from NFL.com:
