Update: Broncos lost 15-13 to the Colts on a last second field goal by Adam Vinatieri.
What a difference four days makes in the NFL.
On the Sunday the Denver Broncos shutout the Tennessee Titans, fans were riding high that things were finally turning a corner. Then four days later on national television against the Patrick Mahomes-less Kansas City Chiefs, Denver was curb stomped back into oblivion.
Now they are on the road against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 8 as underdogs having just traded away Emmanuel Sanders for the future. Quarterback Joe Flacco thinks the offense just needs to do what they do.
“We’re going to do what we do,” Flacco said on Wednesday. “Obviously, it’ll change a little bit for us and maybe how teams attack us, but other than that, we’re going to do what we do. Listen, Emmanuel is obviously a really dynamic player, so anytime you lose somebody like that, you’re going to at least feel the effects out at practice and things like that. I’m sad to see him go from that standpoint. I think it’s a good opportunity for him. I think he’s going to a good place where he’ll have fun and be able to be a big part of it. As a former teammate, I’m also excited for him to have a new chapter.”
Doing what the offense does. We sure hope that doesn’t include continuing to lead the league in three and outs and lack of third down conversions.
Kickoff is set for Sunday, October 17, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. Mile High time at Empower Field at Mile High in Denver, Colorado and will air on NFL Network. If you are looking for an online stream, fuboTV will be streaming this game.
