There are 4 Sunday afternoon games listed on the 2013 NFL Schedule Week 2. The biggest game in this grouping will be when the Denver Broncos (1-0) take on the New York Giants (1-0) in MetLife Stadium at 4:25 PM. It is always an exciting game when Peyton Manning takes on his younger brother Eli Manning and this match up will live up to the hype. Peyton is coming off a huge opening game against the Ravens, throwing for 7 touchdowns in the 49-27 blow-out win against the defending Super Bowl champions. Eli’s Giants squad fell to Dallas on Sunday Night Football last week in Cowboys Stadium. While the younger Manning put up epic passing yards (450) for 4 touchdowns, he threw 3 interceptions. The current NFL odds makers have this game off the board, we will update the point spread and total once it has been posted, but we think the betting lines will show the Broncos -7 point road favorites against the Giants with the Total set at 44 points once live.
The NBC Sunday Night Football game will feature the San Francisco 49ers (1-0) heading north to take on NFC West rival Seattle Seahawks (1-0) at 8:30 PM.

The ESPN Monday Night Football game will be a AFC North battle when the Pittsburgh Steelers (0-1) taken on the Cincinnati Bengals (0-1) at 8:40 PM EST. Both teams will be looking to get their first win of the season after struggling in their season openers. The Steelers lost Maurkice Pouncey for the season after the Pro-Bowl center torn ligaments in his right knee in their 16-9 loss to the Tennessee Titans. It was very costly loss which included Linebacker Larry Foote rupturing his right bicep too. Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton threw for 282 yards, 2 touchdowns and 2 interceptions in their 24-21 loss to the Bears. The current NFL betting odds have the Bengals -6.5 point favorites against the Steelers with the Total set at 40.5 points.
