It's gameday! Week 3 of the NFL preseason is here, which means the starters for the Denver Broncos will play at least half the game and maybe three quarters of it. This is as close as it gets to the regular season in August folks, so you can validate being excited. I've taken note of some pre game Twitter chatter that I thought might get you geared up for this matchup. More after the jump.
Lindsay Jones has the weather all lined up for the game.

The temperature is very warm at the Stadium.
Broncos playing rare preseason day game--played one in New England, one in Denver vs Cowboys in 1978....
Austin Schindel, the SBNation blog winner, is at the game.
Two hours before kickoff, Keith Brooking and Mike Mohamed doing conditioning drills w/ a strength coach. Neither of the LBs will play today.— Lindsay Jones (@PostBroncos) August 26, 2012
DT Kevin Vickerson, who missed most of the week recovering from a concussion, going through warmups. Looks like he'll at least dress today.— Lindsay Jones (@PostBroncos) August 26, 2012
We fully expect Ronnie Hillman to play today. Practiced all week with no setbacks.— Lindsay Jones (@PostBroncos) August 26, 2012

@maioccocsn: Did not travel: LaMichael James, Brandon Jacobs, Joe Hastings, K.Brown, Culliver, Fleming, Hampton, Mario Manningham.
Terrell Owens has also made it known that he has been waived from the Seahawks, joining Chad Ochocinco Johnson in the unemployment line. Next up is Randy Moss, who we will see today. Will he accompany his fellow old timers?
Alot will be riding on this game for the bubble players. All NFL teams will have to cut their rosters to 75 players by tomorrow afternoon.
This should be a very good test to see how the Broncos have progressed this offseason. Let's just hope our team stays healthy.
