Week 7: vs San Francisco 49ers

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Peyton Manning slowed down from his break-neck pace vs. Arizona (31/47 for 479 yards passing, four TDs and two interceptions) to throw an efficient 22/33 for 237 yards, three TDs and zero interceptions at MetLife Stadium last week. Demaryius Thomas continues his resurgence with 12 targets for 10/124/1 receiving to his credit last weekend, while Julius Thomas caught some more TDs (five for 4/51/2), and Emmanuel Sanders helped move the chains (six for 3/38/0). In short, it was another multi-TD day for Manning that led to a 31-17 'W'. The Broncos' passing attack remains one of the most productive in the NFL. The 49ers' pass D ranks second in the NFL averaging 207.3 net passing yards allowed per game, with nine passing scores given up over six games vs. seven interceptions (tied for fifth in the NFL) and 10 sacks (tied for 19th) generated to date. Austin Davis was sacked five times for -20 yards on the way to 21/42 for 216 net yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown on Monday Night Football; Alex Smith wasn't sacked at all but only managed 16/30 for 158 net yards, one TD and one interception thrown at San Francisco two weeks ago. Manning and company have been automatic this season, so you can't sit him unless you are loaded at quarterback, but this is definitely a tough matchup for the Broncos on Sunday Night Football.
