Denver Broncos (2-0)

The Broncos are 2-0, but just barely.  Their season opener against Baltimore showed that Peyton Manning looks to be near the end of his career as he struggled with accuracy in his throws, and Denver just edged the Ravens 19-13.  Last week, on Thursday Night Football, Denver's division rival Chiefs made huge errors late in the game, and the Broncos capitalized with two touchdowns to win a game they should have lost by a final score of 31-24.  Gary Kubiak's team has a strong defense, but a lot of issues to correct on offense if they want to return to the postseason and make a run for a championship.

Detroit Lions (0-2)

The Lions lost their season opener to the San Diego Chargers 28-33, and then lost last week to the division rival Minnesota Vikings 16-26.  Tonight they play their first home game of the year and they're looking for their first win of the season against a very uncertain team from Denver.  The Lions' defense is showing severe weakness after losing Ndamukong Suh to the Miami Dolphins in free agency, and Matthew Stafford can't seem to make any big plays down the field.
