If you are seeing BLUE in your region in the map above, you will get the Broncos-Buccaneers game on your local FOX affiliate. If you live in Alaska or Hawaii, however, you will get cut out to watch the Dallas Cowboys lose to the Seattle Seahawks.
The Denver Broncos are on the ropes after just two games as they deal with a slew of injuries to their best players. Head Coach Vic Fangio was asked this week how he balances game preparation with injury risk and his answer really shows how much of a crapshoot that can be.
“It’s a fine line that you always have to manage,” Fangio said. “When you get the short weeks in there, you have to adjust also. We adjusted last week. We had less practice reps on our short week last week. We’ll have to adjust next week even more, but it’s a fine line there. Some people think part of the reason there are more injuries is because the lack of a normal training camp and length—less people in camp and lack of preseason games. Maybe the guys didn’t get callused enough to be ready to play NFL football. On one hand, you want to keep them healthy. It’s easy to keep them healthy during the week—just don’t practice. One the other hand, guys have to get callused and be ready to play.”
At the end of the day, it is what it is. The Broncos will have to come out and compete against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with the players they have ready to play.
Kickoff is set for 2:25 p.m. Mile High time on Sunday, September 27, 2020 at Empower Field at Mile High in Denver, Colorado. You can watch the live stream of the game through FuboTV or on your local FOX station.
