Default Finally...a big game!

It's official. I'm pumped. Next Sunday will be the biggest single game this Franchise has seen in nearly six years. It's a must win game with a victory meaning the Broncos:

* Bury the Chargers.
* Likely pull even with the Raiders
* Improve our divisional record to 3-2 with only a home-date with the Chiefs remaining. A 4-2 record would likely mean we win any tie-breaker.

If you can't get excited about this game... well find another past time.

GO BRONCOS!!

Definitely excited. Six years though? Niners game to end the season in 07. Bills game, Panthers game, and Chuggers games in 08.

At least for me, I more dreaded those games than anything else. At least this time I feel like we're headed in the right direction, rather than desperately hanging on.

Jeromey Clary. He might be the only RT in the league worse than Barry Richardson and Wayne Hunter

Well it looks like McNeil (LT) is out for the season. I wonder who will playing at LT for them?

I think they have a really good ground game and their passing game is always dangerous. The reason that the Chuggers have lost 6 games is because of their costly turnovers.

Which means........we have to win the turnover battle. We cannot allow them to play mistake free football, or it will be very difficult for us to win.

9-7 and we walk away with the west no problem.

8-8 and we likely need the tie breaker over SD/Oak

The post season really does hinge on this game!

This! Coming from 1-4 and feeling like we were just horrible....then getting blown out by Detroit(for sure we suck), to stringing together some wins, to now talking about a possibility of winning the division and headed to the playoffs!

Totally mind-blowing! AND, loving every minute of it!!

This will probably be the Sunday Night Football game, if it gets flexed.

Don't they need to do that a certain amount of time ahead of time? I don't know the rules for sure, but I think that already would have happened if it was going to.

Anyways, this thread got me into a panic. I'm going back home for Thanksgiving, and have a mid-day flight home on Sunday, which was stupid of me to book in the first place. Luckily, my flight touches back down at DIA at 1 PM, and I should be back at my place in time for kick off.

Crisis averted people, go back to your Sunday night.

The thought of Miller and Doom tag-teaming Rivers into submission... I'll be in my bunk.

I don't like hoping that another human being gets hurt, but a part of me wants Miller to knock Phyllis Rivers out.

The guy's name is Dumbowsky or something and, if I recall correctly from the game a couple weeks ago when McNeill went down, his biggest weakness is speed rushers. Reminded me a lot of Flozell Adams in the later years.

Now we just have to see if we have any speed rushers to match up against him.

Rivers deserves every single bit of what's coming his way.

A flexible scheduling move would be announced at least 12 days before the game. For Week 17, the change will be announced no later than six days before the game. The schedule does not list a Sunday night game in Week 17, but an afternoon game with playoff implications will be moved to that time slot to conclude the season.

Broncos would be ahead of Oakland cuz the division & conference records would be better. But the Broncos have to go to SD & face a really pissed off team - Bolts haven't lost 6 in a row since 2001. Raiders have a chance @home cuz the Bears have to break in their backup QB. The division lead ain't quite in the bag just yet....
