Bal@Den would be a rematch of last season's divisional round playoff game that went to double OT and could have gone either way, deciding the Super Bowl champion. Plenty of "story" there.
Yes, but there are several other playoff rematch storyline games that will probably make it to SNF during the season. Not as unique a storyline as, say, Peyton and Eli playing what'll probably be their last game against each other or Peyton returning to Indy or Shanahan returning to Denver. So many Denver games with storylines like that this season, and they can't put them all on NBC.
