NFL Schedule 2012 Week 2: Monday Night Showdown Between Falcons and Broncos Highlights Week

Peyton Manning, fresh from a Sunday night victory to open his first season with the Denver Broncos, will visit the Atlanta Falcons on Monday night in one of Week 2s key matchups.

The Falcons looked more than prepared for their opening week showdown with the Kansas City Chiefs, as Atlanta throttled the Chiefs, 40-24 behind quarterback Matt Ryan's three touchdown passes.

Other key games in the NFC South include:

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New York Giants, Sunday Sept. 16, 1 p.m. EST

After the defending Super Bowl champion Giants came out somewhat rusty against the Cowboys to open the 2012 season, they'll look to top the reinvigorated looking Bucs.

New Orleans Saints at Carolina Panthers, Sunday Sept. 16, 1 p.m. EST

After dropping their opener to the Buccaneers, the Panthers will look to rebound against the Saints, also looking to rebound from an opening week loss to the Washington Redskins.
