The Denver Broncos (2-3) are in a full-on tailspin after suffering a blow out loss last week and have now lost three-straight games. With the NFC juggernaut Los Angeles Rams (5-0) coming to town, hope of a rebound is slim at best.
If you see ORANGE in your area in the map below, then you will get the Broncos-Rams game on your local FOX station.
A cold snap has gripped the Mountain West and there will be snow in the forecast on Sunday, which could help the Broncos level out the playing field against that high-octane Sean McVay offense the Rams will bring.
To do that they will need to score points - a lot of points. Head Coach Vance Joseph noted that his offense just isn’t getting the job done in the red zone and the focus will be on setting up more manageable third down situations in that area of the field.
“It’s third downs,” Joseph said on Wednesday. “Every drive in the red zone week or even in the scoring zone, have been third-and-longs, so we settle for field goals or we get pushed back with penalties and had to punt. It’s more about converting third downs and keeping third downs more manageable.”
A casual observer may recall that the Broncos do tend to throw more on early downs in the red zone and it just hasn’t worked out for them in any consistent way. That mentality may be shifting finally in this game.
The game will be called by Dick Stockton (play-by-play), Mark Schlereth (analyst), and Jennifer Hale (sideline reporting). Kickoff is set for Sunday, October 14, 2018 at 2:05 p.m. Mile High time at Broncos Stadium at Mile High in Denver, Colorado.
