2012 Game-by-Game: Week 2

Posted Jun 28, 2012

In week two of the 2012 season, the Broncos travel to Atlanta to take on the Falcons on Monday Night Football.

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 2 matchup with the Atlanta Falcons on Monday Night Football.

THE LAST TIME: In Week 11 of the 2008 season, the Broncos came away with a 24-20 victory in Atlanta. The win, which came despite the absences of injured cornerback Champ Bailey and all of the team's starting linebackers, moved Denver to 6-4. It was Atlanta's first home loss of the season.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR: Matt Ryan and the Falcons have won 23 regular-season games over the past two seasons, but suffered setbacks in the first round of the playoffs in both 2010 and 2011. The Week 2 trip to Atlanta will be a crucial early-season matchup between a pair of teams with lofty goals.
 
KEY MATCHUP: Willis McGahee and Co. vs. Atlanta's front seven
The Falcons fielded one of the NFL's stingiest run defenses a year ago, giving up just 97 yards per game on the ground. In a game played on national television in a hostile environment, Denver will need to pick up yards on the ground to keep pass rushers like Atlanta's 13th-year vet John Abraham guessing on third down.
 
NOTES: The first regular-season Broncos-Falcons matchup since 2008…Both teams made the playoffs a year ago…This marks the 21st consecutive season the Broncos have played on Monday Night Football, extending the longest active streak in the NFL. It is the second-longest such streak all-time…It will be the first time in franchise history the Broncos have opened the season with primetime games in back-to-back weeks.
