I know for a fact I am not going to sugar coat this. But this just seems like a game that Denver could very well lose. The only real positives that Denver have going for them is that the game is at home, weather could slow down the Rams offense, and that Aqib Talib is not on the other side of the field.
But those are minor positives. Everything else, the Rams have in their favor. I mean, they are a seven point favorite on the road. It is not often you see a road team favored by that much on the road. But it’s understandable why that is the case.
If there is anything that I can say to give Broncos Country any kind of hope, there are two keys that they can execute. Little to no turnovers, hopefully none. Another is keeping the high powered Rams offense in check by limiting the big plays.
I’m hoping we see a significant dose of Von Miller and Bradley Chubb in this game. But with how poor the pass rush has been the last few games, you just never know.
I will be in attendance for this game. As a matter of fact, I am en route to Denver as I type this. My heart is hoping that the Broncos win. But my head is telling me otherwise. I will have faith in the Broncos from opening kickoff to the final horn. Big prayers that Denver can pull off a big upset.
I am going to try a new trick that can hopefully change fortunes. I have been doing these previews for years. And for the first time, I am going to pick against the Broncos.
