Three key match-ups in week three’s ‘Game of the Week’

Peyton Manning vs The 12th Man

Redemption is the name of the game this week as Peyton Manning’s Broncos ride into ‘The Clink’ to face a Seattle team who, even after a (somewhat) surprising loss last week at the hands of the San Diego Chargers (with the help of an almost unfathomable temperature), will enter week 3 as clear favourites, though the current spread line of -4.5 will be less of a handicap than we will be likely to see for the rest of their home games this season. The re-match of Super Bowl XLVIII will be filled with key match-ups in every conceivable area, but none will be as paramount as the one between the veteran Denver quarterback, and the Seattle crowd.

Dropping like flies: A look at week 3 in Fantasy Land

Fantasy NFL

It is that time again already, for another delving into my strategy for this weeks fantasy football match ups. How was week 2 for you? For me it was a mixed bag, with a win in two leagues and a loss in the other (yes one of those wins was in the League of Gridiron Gentlemen). I apologise if you listened to some of my advice last week and feel you lost out. If you somehow had Jordy Nelson and Aaron Rodgers, then well done, you were laughing all the way. Now I live in Scotland so of course Thursday is an important night, yes that is right, it’s going to rain and so grateful that it’s Thursday night football and Week 3 fantasy line up starts again! More football! Great!
