I am wary of rooting too hard for teams that Denver might play later on. 97 Jags and 2005 Pittsburgh taught me that.
They have a lot going on. Pagano is taking the reigns again. That might affect procedure and general game-day stuff a bit. On top of that they're an inexperienced team that didn't play particularly well last week. This is a chance to work-out some hiccups and gain confidence (at home) against a upper-tier team.
Makes sense to me.
