Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning will be without a couple of skill-position players in tonight’s game against the Atlanta Falcons. Third round running back Ronnie Hillman did not appear on the Broncos’ injury report this week, but is still not ready to make his NFL debut and will miss a second consecutive game. Also inactive for the Broncos is wide receiver Andre Caldwell, who was signed to a two-year, $1.8 million contract in March but has been unable to crack the 46-man game day roster. Quarterback Caleb Hanie is also inactive for the Broncos, which means second round pick Brock Osweiler will be the No. 2 behind Manning. There were not surprises among tonight’s inactives for the Falcons. Starting right tackle Tyson Clabo and outside linebacker Sean Weatherspoon, who were both listed as “questionable” on Saturday’s injury report, are active and will play on Monday night. Denver : QB Caleb Hanie, RB Ronnie Hillman, WR Andre Caldwell, G Chris Kuper, OC Philip Blake, DT Sealver Siliga, CB Chris Harris Atlanta : QB Dominique Davis, OT Lamar Holmes, OC Joe Hawley, DE Cliff Matthews, DE Jonathan Massaquoi, CB Terrence Johnson, S Charles Mitchell

With just hours remaining until the Atlanta Falcons and Denver Broncos kickoff on Monday Night Football, now is the time to look at the injury reports for both teams. Earlier this week, we learned that the Falcons were going to have to be without cornerback Brent Grimes for the rest of the season after a week one Achilles injury sidelined him. What other injuries should fans of both squads keep an eye on?

The Chiefs and Raiders not only failed to bounce back from Week One losses, but looked miserable in Week Two blowouts. The Chargers, without Ryan Mathews and Antonio Gates, rolled past the Titans to advance to 2-0. The Broncos continue their gauntlet of an opening schedule with a Monday night game against the Falcons.

On Sunday I watched my New York Giants knock off the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 41-34. Eli Manning threw for 510 yards and three touchdowns. I can’t tell you how happy I was to witness this phenomenon. My Giants recorded their first win of the season and they did it in dramatic fashion.

Week three of NFL action is already here and the NFC South teams have already flexed their collective muscles. Every single team in the South has at least one huge win except for the powerful New Orleans Saints and you have to figure that is only a matter of time. This is the first week that all the teams are playing outside of the South at the same time. For once, we don’t have to beat up on each other. As a huge Carolina Panthers fan, I keep close tabs on all the NFC South teams. Here is how I see this weeks games shaking down:
