The Match-up

This week's BGS game features two of the remaining six undefeated teams, pitting the Green Bay Packers against the Denver Broncos. Although many had written off the Broncos before the season started due to Manning's aging arm, they have managed to rattle off six straight wins to begin the season. The Packers, on the other hand, are doing exactly what people thought they would up to this point. Behind the arm of MVP Aaron Rodgers, the Packers are looking to make another trip to the Super Bowl this year. Although the game will be close, I think the Packers will prevail in this matchup. 

The Prediction

Green Bay Packers - 24
Denver Broncos - 16

Cute Guy Watch 

Normally I'm searching online for someone to feature for days. DAYS! I was pleasantly surprised a few minutes ago when I typed in, "Broncos wide receiver," and Emmanuel Sanders popped up. Again from very limited research, it seems Sanders is recovering from an injury but should be able to play in the Big Game on Sunday night. Even if he isn't playing, I hope they show him at some point in his uniform since football pants are THE BEST pants. ... Oh yeah.

Mascot Match-up

The mascot lacking Packers take on the Broncos this week. I won't say much about the Packers since my vent at the beginning of the season when I complained about... Well, their lack of mascot. I don't think there are many other mascots out there that could get past the fierce bucking and speed of the bronco so I'm picking them for the win this week. I'll reconsider the Packers for a potential win when they implement a mascot.
