That Peyton Manning fellow is pretty good eh?
The Broncos QB threw an NFL record tying 7 touchdowns in last night’s NFL season opener, leading the Broncos to a 49-27 win over the Ravens.
Pretty nice payback for Denver, after they lost to Baltimore in a crazy overtime game in last year’s playoffs, and then watched the Ravens go all the way and win the Super Bowl.
Speaking of payback, the Ticats entertain the Lions tomorrow afternoon in Guelph, with plans of rebounding from last week’s loss in B.C.
The two keys in this game for Hamilton will be the 1st quarter and the run game.
Starting on the right foot, unlike what they did in Vancouver when they couldn’t record a 1st down in the opening period, is important for the Cats.
Making the Lions, or any team, play from behind is a key element to controlling the game.
And not only limiting the Lions’ ground attack, which they did nicely in B.C., but establishing a run game early in the contest will open up Hamilton’s playbook.
This is definitely a winnable game for the Cats, and another chance to grab a share of the lead in the CFL’s East Division.
