This has been dubbed the dreaded “trap game.”
“Don’t sleep on the St. Louis Rams and head coach Jeff Fischer. He will put out every trick play in the book on the Denver Broncos.”
That’s fine but that defense has to stop Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos offense. Trick plays only work in close games against teams that don’t have an offense.
And don’t rule out the benefit of playing this game in a dome, where there will be no effects of the weather or the elements. If anything, the offense will be even faster.
If you watched PFM and his offense against the Oakland Raiders when they scored five touchdowns in what felt like the span of 30 seconds, that should get you excited.
Given what happened two weeks ago in Foxborough, Denver doesn’t have the luxury of letting up. Not when home field advantage is up for grabs and the New England Patriots face the toughest stretch of their schedule.
With kickoff a few hours away, here are the five Broncos (7-2) to watch against St. Louis (3-6).
