Match Preview:
The Broncos had a blinder last week against the Titans, schooling little brother in true title contender fashion. The Warriors were blindsided by the young guns from the Panthers and usually the Warriors do well during the Origin period, but this year they have been able to stay in the top eight. 

Key Matchup:
Battle of the halves. The Warriors rely on Johnson to provide the spark and if he does then the Warriors should ignite and win. The main problem there is Kodi Nikorima from the Broncos who brings the confidence of last weeks win over the Titans. Whoever can gain the upper hand in game control and creativity will surely win the game for their team

Jeremy's Prediction:Broncos by 4. It will be a very close game, The Broncos and Warriors usually have heavy intense battles against each other.
