Will the Broncos prove they’re for real against Baltimore?

One thing we do know is that Broncos Country is going to be amped up to help the Broncos to get to 4-0.

Good morning, Broncos Country!

It’s no secret the last four seasons have been rough.

The Denver Broncos haven’t been good and, as a result, the excitement has been forced.

Now comes Sunday against Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens. This anticipation is very real. Regardless of how the game unfolds, it’s great to have this feeling again. Yes, I know, the Broncos are more than this but when you haven’t experienced something in a while it’s nice to do so again. Actually looking forward to a game? What is this? What’s happening?

And the rest of Broncos Country probably feels the same way. In the winners/losers from the New York Jets game, I dropped the ball not mentioning the fans as a “winner.” Though as well as they brought the Rocky Mountain Thunder for the home opener, today that’ll get amped to 11. It’s going to be incredibly loud at Mile High today, which will make it a skosh more difficult for Jackson and the Ravens.

As for the game, I have a good feeling about how Denver will play but that means absolutely nothing. And I could be way off. If the Broncos come out on the losing end, the fact the excitement isn’t forced is a welcome sight.

Go Broncos.
