The Denver Broncos (6-3) head south to face the red hot New Orleans Saints (4-4). Denver is struggling, having lost three of their last five, so it could spell disaster if they drop this game. What’s worse, is they will be down two critical defenders in Derek Wolfe and Aqib Talib.

Kickoff is at 11:00 a.m. Mile High time and will air on KCNC-TV (CBS 4) locally with Jim Nantz (play-by-play), Phil Simms (color analyst), and Tracy Wolfson (sideline reporting) covering the game.
The big question in this game is the Broncos’ rushing attack.
“Obviously we’re trying and doing a little bit of everything,” head coach Gary Kubiak said of the running game. “We have to get it going. We also know the key to getting it going is staying on the field and running plays. We’re looking for snaps and the only way you’re going to get snaps is making first downs and time of possession. That’s the thing that’s going to help us get back to it. That’s our focus, more so than a play or two. Our focus is trying to stay on the field.”
That is a good focus to have, but can the players execute?
