Best bet on the Tube

 

Matt Ryan was in seventh grade when Peyton Manning was the top overall pick in 1998. Now, two elite quarterbacks from different football generations will be on the same field, facing off in a most intriguing Monday night matchup (5:30, ESPN). There’s Ryan, on the cusp of establishing himself as one of the best at his position for the Atlanta Falcons (1-0). There’s Manning, his legacy secure but still with something to prove as he jump-starts his career for the Denver Broncos (1-0). Despite a most successful debut in the Mile High City, Manning keeps insisting that he’s still learning the ropes with a new team and it may take all year to truly find his comfort zone. – AP
