Five Intriguing Storylines for 2019 Denver Broncos Season
Week One: Brandon Marshall faces his old team
In Week One, the Denver Broncos go on the road for the first time since 2010. Denver has enjoyed the last eight seasons playing in front of their home fans for so long in early September. But now, they must go into hostile territory for the first game.
But the bigger story here is seeing a familiar face. Not only will the Broncos have to deal with Derek Carr and Antonio Brown in Week One, they will go up against a former teammate in Brandon Marshall. Not the wide out, but the linebacker.
After spending six seasons with the Broncos, Marhsall was let go in free agency and after a long wait he got a one year deal to play with the Raiders. While it is sad to see a big part of their defense go, he was looking for a fresh start. Hopefully he will get that in Oakland.
Having a former player face Denver in the first game of the year will add on to that excitement of the season opener.
