“Broncos @ Giants – Peyton Manning versus Eli Manning. The huge New York television market. According to sources, it will be a “major upset” if this is not the SNF opener. (…)
“While the plan for opening weekend is still being finalized, one game on the Broncos schedule is all but set in stone. Denver will be playing on Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 28) in Dallas. “It’s a lock,” said a league source.”
So, Denver is expected to open against the Giants and are a lock to play the Cowboys on Thanksgiving. With Manning’s rating history, expect the NFL to schedule many prime-time games for the Broncos in 2013.
