Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos play their fourth of five prime-time, nationally televised games this weekend when they host Drew Brees and the disappointing New Orleans Saints on Sunday Night Football.

Manning, a New Orleans native, plays the team his father starred with for the first time as a member of the Broncos. Manning has a 2-3 career record agains the Saints, the last of which came in Super Bowl XLIV.

Denver (3-3) is tied with the San Diego Chargers for first place in the AFC West. The Broncos were off in Week 7 after coming from 24 points behind to beat the Chargers 35-24 on Monday Night Football in Week 6.
