Detroit Lions vs Denver Broncos NFL Week 8
Detroit Lions @ Denver Broncos Sun. Oct. 30, 2011 4:05 p.m. EST
Tim Tebow mania has struck the Mile High City as everyone Denver Broncos fan has seemingly bought into their new starting quarterback after he was able to lead a thrilling come-from-behind victory over the lowly Miami Dolphins. Even though Tebow was able to lead the team to 15 unanswered points against Miami last weekend, the fact is that the Dolphins are probably the worst team in the league.
With that being said, the Denver Broncos and their new starting quarterback Tim Tebow will have their hands full this weekend in the Mile High City as they will host the up-and-coming Detroit Lions. This will be an interesting matchup to say the least as all eyes will be on Tim Tebow once again to see if he is as good as people are making him out to be and whether or not he can get his second straight win as a starter this season.
The problem is that the Denver Broncos will be going up against a very good Detroit Lions squad that is looking to bounce back from two straight losses to the San Francisco 49ers and the Atlanta Falcons after starting the season 5-0.
The big question mark in this game right now is the health of quarterback Matthew Stafford. After injuring his ankle in the loss the Falcons, Stafford’s playing status has been in doubt for Week 8, but early reports have him suiting up against the Broncos this Sunday.
As of right now, the Detroit Lions are the favorites to get the win in Week 8 over the Denver Broncos with a -3 point spread. In my opinion, this spread is incredibly low if Stafford is go-to-go and taking the Lions is a no-brainer.
