2012 Game-By-Game: Week 8

Posted Jul 12, 2012

In Week 8 of the 2012 season, the Broncos welcome the New Orleans Saints to Denver for a Sunday Night matchup on NBC.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Over the next few weeks, DenverBroncos.com will take a look at the team's 2012 schedule week-by-week, including a look at the last time the teams faced off, what to watch for this season and more.

Below is a closer look at the Broncos' Week 8 matchup with the New Orleans Saints on Sunday Night Football.

Week 8: vs. New Orleans Saints
Opponent • DATE: Sunday, October 28
• TIME: 6:20 p.m. MDT
• LOCATION: Sports Authority Field at Mile High
• TELEVISION: NBC (NTL)
• OPP. 2011 RECORD: 13-3

THE LAST TIME: Denver improved to 3-0 with a 34-32 win over the Saints in Week 3 of the 2008 season. The Broncos were outgained 502-369 in total yards, but a missed 43-yard field goal by the Saints' Martin Gramatica with 1:55 remaining allowed Denver to hang on for the victory.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR: Broncos cornerback Tracy Porter welcomes a number of his teammates from his days as a Saint to the Mile High City for a nationally televised Week 8 showdown. Porter, who snared key interceptions of Brett Favre in the NFC Championship game and Peyton Manning in the Super Bowl during New Orleans' 2010 run to a championship, will look to slow down a potent group of Saints pass catchers highlighted by tight end Jimmy Graham and wide receiver Marques Colston.

KEY MATCHUP: Peyton Manning vs. Drew Brees
Two of the best quarterbacks in the league, Manning and Brees squared off in Super Bowl XLIV with the Saints coming out on top. The rematch under the lights at Sports Authority Field at Mile High should provide plenty of fireworks.

NOTES: The first Broncos-Saints contest since 2008... Denver will be fresh off its Week 7 bye and playing on national television for the fourth time in its first seven games of the 2012 season... Denver's all-time record in games coming off of the bye week is 17-6... The Broncos have scored at least 28 points in each of the last four matchups with New Orleans, dating all the way back to 1994.
