The Denver Broncos held a joint practice session with the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday and it was a bit chippy by both sides. Denver “won” the scrimmage, but it was clear they came out with a little more intensity and eagerness to prove something against the visiting team that day.
It is unlikely to be a much of a game between the two clubs starting units as head coach Nathaniel Hackett made it clear that he views preseason games more as an evaluation tool for the back end of the roster.
“Nothing is like playing true football, tackling and all that stuff,” Hackett said on Wednesday. “But again, is preseason true football? It doesn’t count. It is, and it’s a great evaluation for us and to watch guys have that kind of opportunity to do it. I’ll keep coming back to that risk reward factor.”
That mentality is fine by me. There will likely be one preseason game where we’ll see the starters out there for a couple of series, but that’s probably about it there. Week 1 is rapidly approaching anyway.

Broncos-Cowboys Betting Odds
According to DraftKings Sportsbook, the Broncos are a mere three-point favorite at home against the Cowboys this week. I mean, it is a preseason game and those are notoriously hard to predict. The over/under is set at a paltry 31.5 points.
Fun fact: the Broncos have not lost to the Cowboys in a regular season matchup since 1995. A seven-game win streak. However, they have dropped three preseason games since 1995 holding a 6-3 record in those games that don’t count.
We’ve made some big changes to the podcast lineup this season. If you have been listening, you will have noticed a change. We have a lot of new voices around and I think we’ll begin to hit a good stride by Week 1. Here is a few full length podcasts from our team this week.
