Quick Take: Surging Broncos visit Cincy

More Columns > and NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport has his thoughts on the game:

Why this game is intriguing: Remember when we thought Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos would take a while to become contenders? Seems funny now. Fresh off a demolition of the Saints, the Broncos are in prime position to take control of their division. The opportunity is there against a Cincinnati Bengals team that has lost three straight. Yet, this matchup is a little odd. It's at Cincinnati, for one. And the Bengals have the third-most sacks in the NFL, with a vicious pass rush led by big Geno Atkins, who applies pressure up the middle. That doesn't bode well for Manning's comfort. However, few teams boast as stifling a combination of defensive pressure and coverage as Denver. Will Cincy quarterback Andy Dalton get enough time to find electric wideout A.J. Green?
