The Denver Broncos Host the New York Giants Tonight on NBC’s ‘Sunday Night Football’

NBC Sports’ presentation of “Sunday Night Football” continues this weekend as Super Bowl 50 MVP Von Miller and the Denver Broncos host two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning and the New York Giants at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Coverage begins with “Football Night in America” tonight, October 15, at 7 p.m. ET on NBC.

The Broncos (3-1) are coming off a bye week, and last defeated division rival Oakland 16-10 in Week 4, as the league’s No. 1 defense held Marshawn Lynch to just 12 yards on nine carries. QB Trevor Siemian, who has thrown for 1,485 yards with 12 touchdowns and four interceptions in his last six games at home, aims for his fifth consecutive home game with a 90+ passer rating.

New York enters tonight’s game aiming for its first win of the season following a Week 5 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, 27-22, in the final minutes. The Giants’ last three losses have come by a combined 10 points.

New York and Denver last played during the regular season in 2013, a Week 2 Manning vs. Manning QB matchup in which Peyton Manning led the Broncos to a 41-23 victory over his younger brother and the Giants at MetLife Stadium. The Broncos lead the series overall, 6-5.

Calling Giants-Broncos are seven-time Emmy Award-winner Al Michaels (play-by-play), in his record 32nd season as the voice of the NFL’s premier primetime package; 16-time Emmy Award-winner Cris Collinsworth; and two-time Emmy Award-winning sideline reporter Michele Tafoya.
