This game features two teams desperate for a win will take place in London on a neutral field. Both teams need a victory here in order to keep their playoff hopes alive. The Broncos have been bitten by the injury bug this season and that has really derailed what may have been an otherwise decent Broncos team, while Orton is having a great year not many others are and adjustments are going to have to be made after getting blown out by the Raiders. The 49ers are still holding on to their playoff hopes despite only having one win through 7 weeks. If they hope to keep that small possibility alive then Sunday is a must win, Singletary has decided to start Troy Smith with Alex Smith injured for the next 2-3 weeks so hopefully they can win this and keep their playoff hopes alive. Game is set to start 1:00 PM EST

The Broncos are in trouble and I don’t see things getting much better, they can’t run the football and they can’t stop the run which are the two things you have to be able to do in the NFL if you are going to win games. Orton will continue to have a very nice year, but with very little help elsewhere he simply is not the type of QB capable of putting a team on his back and carrying them to victory like Peyton Manning could. The pass defense is solid with Champ Bailey and Dawkins in the secondary, but other than that the defense is poor. The team overall just hasn’t played good football and that will prevent you from winning the NFL every time. There is time for the Broncos to turn things around and rip off a bunch of wins in a row, but unless they get things turned around this week, it could be a very long season.
Singletary made another bold statement by saying he still believes his team can make the playoffs and on paper they probably should, but games in the NFL aren’t played on paper. Troy Smith will be going into this game as the starter as the 49ers are just trying anything to get on the winning track. The Defense of the 49ers has been average not great, but certainly not bad and they look to shut down the passing attack of the Broncos on Sunday. The 49ers have to win this week to keep any shot of having an average season alive. This 49ers team is the epitome of an underachieving team and will look to put an end to their losing ways. There is potential here and if they can run the ball effectively with Gore which shouldn’t be a problem and get some pressure on Orton that can only help secure them a win this week.

Broncos vs 49ers Prediction for Week Eight Betting:
Spread Prediction (Top Play): Since 1992 the 49ers are 3-2 ATS against the Broncos. With that being said the Broncos are coming off an embarrassing loss to the Raiders and I am sure they are looking to come out strong this week. The problem is I don’t think they have the talent or ability to dominate any team and I think the 49ers have too much talent to lose to this Broncos team. Troy Smith gives the 49ers a multi dimensional weapon who can beat you running and throwing the football, Gore is a running back who can catch very well and can be a weapon out of the backfield, Davis is a weapon at Tight End, and this is a Singletary Defense so they won’ be afraid to dial up pressure if needed. I just can’t see the Broncos able to keep up for 60 minutes in a game that could be won on Offense.
Game Total: Both of these teams have an Offense capable of scoring points, even though they may not have thus far into the season. I think both teams will score, Orton has proven he can throw the ball and capable of moving his team up the field, my problems with the Broncos is the Defense has not shown up this season and hasn’t made the plays you have to make. The 49ers are a good Offense that can move the football and I think Smith will do well in his first start as QB of the 49ers and he will put a good number of points on the board. Since 1992 3 of the 5 games have gone Over as well is as good a reason as any to take the Over here. Both teams will score and put up their share of points.
