Manning is going to be playing in what I presume to be rather cold conditions (and he can look pedestrian in bitter conditions), against a very very good defensive group. I could argue that their defenders are much better than the offensive skill set players (the weather if bad is going to help a ground n pound squad with a beast defense). Going to be a great game!
I am not even sure what is going to happen in this game. I can see Manning being stymied for two and a half QTRS or so, and suddenly catching hot and making a nice statistical day for himself despite being hampered for the vast portion. I can also see him having a monster game. A lot of experience on Mannings side.
Agree. If its sloppy, the Hawks can pound Skittles all day long. Manning is great no doubt, but that Hawks D is clicking on all cylinders right now. I can't see him throwing for 300 plus.
