Fanatics of the orange and blue, we have finally made it! We are just hours away from the Denver Broncos kicking off their 2021 season, opening their season with a battle against the New York Giants.
Both of these teams come into the season with a common goal in mind–to make a playoff push after some time away.
For the Denver Broncos, that looks like finally posting a winning record for the first time since the 2016 season, and earning their first playoff berth since Super Bowl 50. After five straight seasons of disappointment, Broncos Country is ready for playoff football to return to the Mile High City, and with a revamped defensive unit and a young and promising offensive unit, this may finally be the year.
As for the New York Giants, they will look for their first playoff appearance since 2016, which ended swiftly in a Wild Card round loss to the Green Bay Packers. Young quarterback Daniel Jones still is looking to find his footing as an NFL franchise quarterback.. will this be the year?
There are unanswered questions for both franchises as we kick the season off, and we will make progress toward answering them beginning with this Week 1 contest.
Let’s preview the game.
