The 3-1 Denver Broncos will host the 0-5 New York Giants on Sunday Night Football. It will be their second primetime game of 2017, having beaten the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday Night Football in Week 1.
The game will air on NBC’s Sunday Night Football, with the kick off at 6:30 p.m. Mile High time. Al Michael will do the play-by-play, Cris Collinsworth is the color analyst, and Michele Tafoya will be on the sideline.
Having lost most of the wide receivers to injury last week, the Giants could be on the verge of imploding. The Broncos need this win too, because a three-game road trip begins the following week in a brutal stretch where they will face the Chargers, the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football, and the Philadelphia Eagles. All before a home matchup against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots on Sunday Night Football in Week 10.
If the Broncos can take this game and go at least 2-2 in this stretch, they will still be in good position to make the playoffs at 6-3. It’s a make or break four-game stretch that would get a whole lot harder if they choke away a win against this languishing Giants team.
