It is only week four in the NFL, and the Broncos find themselves in a must-win situation. After roaring out of the gates in week one and winning a big game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Broncos have stumbled the last two weeks, and thanks to sluggish starts and a porous defense, they find themselves sitting at 1-2. For any player wearing the orange and blue, they should not have a difficult time getting emotionally ready for this week’s contest, because it not only opens up divisional play, it brings the arch-rival Oakland Raiders to Denver. No doubt, fans always put an asterisk on this game, regardless of what the Broncos’ record is or what has happened in the season thus far. Given what has occurred the last two weeks with the Broncos, they obviously need to bounce back and perform well for all four quarters – I can’t think of a better team to rally against than the black-and-silver. Fans of the Broncos, and the players as well, better be ready because you know the Raiders feel the same way about us as we do about them.

Good luck Broncos! Enjoy the game Bronco Country!
