Preseason Week 2 Story Lines
Andrew Luck in Primetime
Andrew Luck will look to follow up his impressive first performance as his Colts head into Pittsburgh for Sunday Night Football.
It is still only the preseason, but Luck’s play will be suggestiveof how he will do throughout the season. He showed how great of a quarterback he is last week, and he must continue to play at the level of a top pick for the Colts to have any chance of competing this year.
Battle of New York
The Giants and Jets will square off on Saturday night in what is technically a home game for the Jets.
The Jets are possibly the most nationally covered team by the media, and they must show a reason for all of this coverage.
Tim Tebow will not be used in any special formations as they will be hidden to opponents until the season begins.
Peyton’s First Home Game in Denver
Peyton Manning will make his debut in Denver on Saturday night as his Broncos take on the Seahawks.
He will likely see limited action, but fans will surely come out in full to support their new quarterback.
