Peyton Manning was critical of the way the Denver offense looked this week in practice. But it’s hard not to have liked how Julius Thomas and Co. looked last week, when they throttled the 49ers 34-0 on the road.

This is one of the biggest lines of the week, but it’s one of the best teams in the league at home against one of the worst. Give us the Broncos by double digits.

Heavy’s Pick: Broncos 34, Texans 20


SUNDAY, AUGUST 24

San Diego Chargers (+6) at San Francisco 49ers, 4 p.m., Fox

The Gold Rush, San Francisco’s cheerleading squad, didn’t have a whole lot to cheer about last week against the Broncos. But Colin Kaepernick and Co. will bounce back and cover against a Chargers team that’s also coming off a blowout loss.

Heavy’s Pick: 49ers 27, Chargers 17


Cincinnati Bengals (+2) at Arizona Cardinals, 8 p.m., NBC

Cincinnati’s offense has been impressive in each of the Bengals’ first two games, and that will continue in the dessert. We’ll take the Cardinals to eek out a win, but Andy Dalton and Co. to pull out the cover.

Heavy’s Pick: Cardinals 30, Bengals 29
