Follow along with us here at Predominantly Orange as we get you set for the Broncos vs. Titans in the last 11 AM MST game of the season.
This week, it was widely believed that Broncos’ QB Trevor Siemian would be a no-go Sunday at Tennessee.
However, this news broke Saturday.
After his strong performance against the Chiefs November 29 (20 of 34, 368 yards, 3 TD's), Siemian was playing his best football before spraining his foot.
The Titans' defense isn't necessarily strong against the pass either. In fact, it is 26th in the NFL, giving up 270.3 yards per game in 2016.
If Siemian can get in a rhythm, the Broncos offense could have a big game at Tennessee in Week 14.
This season, Siemian has thrown for 15 touchdowns against 7 interceptions for 2,396 yards. He also completes 60 percent of his passes. All things considered, this is good for a quarterback having his first NFL experience.
Anyway, the weather also promises to be comfortable, 51 degrees and overcast. This report is from my new Twitter friend, Nashville meteorologist Danielle Breezy (yes that is her real name).
The Titans have a lot on the line in this one. They are 6-6 and tied for first in the AFC South with Indianapolis and Houston.
Per this injury report from Jim Wyatt of titansonline.com, Tennessee is relatively healthy.
With the Titans having their bye last week, it's easy to see why this is the case.
Thus, the Titans have all things going for them except for immense pressure on their shoulders.
Quarterback Marcus Mariota has quietly become one of the best signal-callers in the NFL as well.

The second-year QB out of Oregon has completed 64.3 percent of his passes for 29 touchdowns and 8 interceptions on the season.
Beyond this, tailback DeMarco Murray has 1,352 scrimmage yards on the season for the Titans. This puts him at just under 113 yards of total offense per week.
Still, the Broncos' defense appears to have risen to another level.
Despite the offense going three and out seven times, the defense and punter Riley Dixon rose to the occasion. The 17-10 win at Jacksonville may yet prove to be big in the grand scheme of things.
Speaking of Dixon, his 45.9 yards per average is the greatest for a rookie in NFL history. Of course, as a collegian at Syracuse, Dixon learned to rep the orange well in his youth.
In any event, this is your game thread, so use it wisely. If any Titans fans happen upon us, treat them kindly. GO BRONCOS!!!
