2 units on Arizona PICK () (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: LOSS
Peyton Manning looked great (finally) last week as he went 10-for-12 for 122 yards and two touchdowns vs. the starting 49ers defense which was ranked 2nd in the league last season allowing just 14.3 points per game. That performance takes any pressure off John Fox to play Manning here for any extended period. Despite his performance, Denver dropped to 1-2 SU and ATS as John Fox dropped to 18-21 for his preseason career. Unlike the Broncos, Arizona still has a QB controversy. But, Ken Wisenhunt has said neither Kevin Kolb nor John Skelton will play in this game. No matter as neither has been impressive at all. Ryan Lindley who secured the #3 position should see significant action. John Fox is just 4-13 ATS in the preseason following an ATS loss. If he didn't care about winning last game vs. San Francisco with the starters playing, he isn't going to care here. Take the Cards.
