Las Vegas oddsmakers are expecting a close game between the Atlanta Falcons and Denver Broncos. The Falcons opened as 3.5-point favorites, though that line has moved a bit and they're now 3-point favorites.

Both teams looked good in Week 1 wins. The Falcons defeated the Chiefs, 40-24, behind a fantastic performance from quarterback Matt Ryan, who accounted for four touchdowns. The Broncos beat the Steelers, 31-19, in Peyton Manning's first game back from a neck injury. Those two players figure to be the focal points in Monday night's game, but there are plenty of other interesting storylines, including the matchup between Atlanta's wide receivers and Denver's secondary.
