(Sporting Alert) — The two remaining undefeated sides left this season will both be in action in Week 7 of the NFL campaign on Sunday, but there is no doubt that one of these fixtures will be more emotional than the other.
Live coverage of every game will be broadcast on CBS, FOX and NBC, which will also stream the late game online as well.
Denver Broncos (6-0) and the Kansas City Chiefs (6-0), have won all six of their opening games so far and will be looking to build on those records against challenging opponents Sunday evening.
The league’s leading quarterback Peyton Manning will lead the Broncos inside the Lucas Oil Stadium, where he’ll face his former club Indianapolis Colts (4-2).
“I don’t play there anymore, but I’ve continued to communicate and I’ve enjoyed those times when I see someone from Indiana in a hotel or an ’18’ Colts jersey out here at practice,” Manning said. “There’s always a connection there.”
Manning comes up against the quarterback that replaced him, in Andrew Luck, while this contest comes on the back of recent comments made by the Colts’ owner Jim Irsay, who commented that the team’s playoff record during the Manning era was a failure, after the team Colts lost their first playoff game seven times from 11 tries.
Many believe Irsay comments were unnecessary, but Manning is paying no attention to it.
“I’ve learned that in life you need to be at peace with other people’s decisions that affect you that you have no control over,” he said. “That’s good advice I’ve had over the years and it’s certainly served me well in this particular scenario.”
Another undefeated side, Kansas City, will be hoping to remain perfect on Sunday when they host the Houston Texans (2-4) at Arrowhead Stadium.
While the Kansas City Chiefs are looking for its seventh win this season, the Texans are desperate to stop the bleed and end a four game losing streak.
Gary Kubiak, whose Houston team was 5-1 at this point last season, believes that the biggest letdown to this term are the number of turnovers his team has committed.
“Turnovers get you beat in this league and they’re getting us beat on a consistent basis,” Gary Kubiak.
The New England Patriots (5-1) handed the New Orleans Saints their first defeat of thelast week to bounce back from their own dropped game against the Cincinnati Bengals the week before, and this weekend they will take on the New York Jets (3-3) hoping to start another long winning streak.
Also on Sunday, the struggling Jacksonville Jaguars (0-6) look for their first win of theagainst the San Diego Chargers (3-3) at EverBank Field, the San Francisco 49ers (4-2) travel to take on the Tennessee Titans (3-3) at LP Field, looking for their fourth win in a row.
The Dallas Cowboy (3-3) will play the Philadelphia Eagles (3-3) at Lincoln Financial Field, the Chicago Bears (4-2) are at the Washington Redskins (1-4), while the Cincinnati Bengals (4-2) are at Detroit Lions (4-2) and the Miami Dolphins host the Buffalo Bills at Sun Life Stadium.
