There’s always a danger when you look too far ahead.
You have to focus on the here and now. Such is the life for the Denver Broncos. That doesn’t apply here for us, however. We laid out the keys to Sunday night’s game against the New York Giants on Wednesday, and we were all in agreement that Denver needs to dominate. Win the game on the practice field, focus on the details, play a complete game, control the line of scrimmage and destroy the Giants’ will.
As Adam Malnati and I said on the latest Mile High Report Radio Podcast, they need this game because of what looms in the schedule: Three-straight road games, two of them in the AFC West. That makes Sunday’s game even more crucial for the Broncos. Don’t just get the confidence of a win but the added boost of a complete game as they prepare for the Los Angeles Chargers.
It’s tough to win on the road. That gets even steeper when the games are in the division. You never know what to expect let alone how to predict what will happen. The old cliche, “you can throw the records out” is true. After Sunday’s game, 11 games remain and only four at Mile High Stadium.
Yes, the Broncos should win this game for obvious reasons ... the biggest is that New York is a hot mess and this shouldn’t be close. Denver also needs to win this game for what lies ahead; a brutal stretch that starts with three-straight road games.
