If you are seeing BLUE in your region in the map above, then you will get the Broncos-Vikings game on your local CBS affiliate. The game will not be broadcast in Alaska and Hawaii this week. Kevin Harlan will call the game with Rich Gannon as the analyst and Jay Feely doing the sideline reporting.
The Denver Broncos chances in this game will flow through the arm of Brandon Allen, who is coming off his first start. He played rather well, but the offense did not show it could make sustained drives and the time of possession disadvantage in their win was significant.
Against a team like the Minnesota Vikings, that is not a recipe for success. Head Coach Vic Fangio thought Allen played well, but also noted there were a lot of missed opportunities in that game as well.
“Better play,” Fangio said of what he hoped to see from Allen this week. “I think he can play better than he played in the last game. He missed some throws that I think he can make. When you’re playing a team as good as the Vikings all around, we can’t be missing throws that he’s got to make. He’s got to make the throws that are makeable and not miss any. He missed a few the first day.”
If Allen can come out and be efficient and make the plays he missed in their last game, the Broncos could keep this game close enough to have it go either way. If he doesn’t, the Broncos could end up facing a wave of Vikings offense late that could turn a close game into a blowout loss.
Kickoff is set for Sunday, November 17, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. Mile High time at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
