Faces a very tough Seattle defense, but he is Peyton Manning. Could be his one down game of the year. But do you have the cajones to sit him? We wouldn't either.
If Brian Hoyer can look like solid against the Steelers, Newton will be a stud! He played well against the Lions in Week 2. Expect another solid game against Pittsburgh in Week 3.

Hawks are brutal at home but I can't see Peyton being bad in this much anticipated rematch.
At home and Pitt D not really the elite unit we're used to seeing, although Cam still getting barrings here.

What can you say other than it's not a good matchup and it's in Seattle. One can imagine that Peyton studied the tape from last year's Super Bowl plenty, so he should fare a little better this time around.

Manning is still a QB1 this week and I do not expect him to look as bad as he did in the Super Bowl this year. Seattle is a tough place to play, I do not think he will be a high QB1 in this brutal matchup.
