How can I watch Broncos games not on TV? Also, the Manning Effect described in detail

Hi everyone, I had a question about games that aren't nationally televised. They didn't show the Broncos game in our region. Therefore, I was wondering if anyone knew of a halfway-credible site that I could watch it on. Direct TV isn't really an option since I'm a college student and that's a little pricey.

On a side note, it feels great to be a Broncos fan. I am one of the followers that came over this season. Before, I was a Colts fan from Indiana my entire life. To hopefully dispose of the "bandwagon" claims, I would like to share some insight as to why myself and others possibly made the switch. To begin, I was a Colts fan before Manning. When I was a kid, Harbaugh was the QB. My other favorite teams are the Cubs, Flyers, Pacers, and Purdue Boilermakers. Hopefully the Cubs alone prove this point that we all aren't bandwagon fans here.

During 18's long tenure in Indy, I began to get really frustrated with the Colts. I saw the best QB of all time constantly being surrounded by superior teams. Year after year, the Colts refused to ever spend any money and surround him with a decent running game, offensive line, or defense. I honestly can't remember one major acquisition they made in free agency. The Colts could have won at least 3 super bowls with a decent supporting cast. So obviously I grew more frustrated each year. Then came the decision when our owner got rid of Manning. We felt betrayed. Despite his refusal to spend money, Peyton carried him for over a decade and essentially built Lucas Oil Stadium. Isray also showed him no respect leading up to the release. This treatment to players and coaches had been going on for years. I felt as if Jim Isray was no better than his dad who moved the Colts from Baltimore without any warning to their fans.

Then came Manning's decision to play for a new team.

I was really happy for him when he chose Denver. I have always admired how the Broncos were ran and it just felt right. On that day, I suddenly felt a strong allegiance to the Mile High city. Some might call that questionable loyalty but this instance is a very special one. The Broncos are a classy organization that I've already grown to love and I look forward to what Osweiler can do after Peyton retires. It's going to be a great ride and this team will improve exponentially as the season goes on. However, not a bad start for a team with a ridiculous schedule and a new QB that hasn't played in over a year.
