It's going to be a White Christmas in Buffalo in all likelihood, with a 60 percent chance of snow Friday and 30 percent on game day.

It will also be in the low 30s as far as temperature, meaning this is likely the coldest-weather game in which quarterback Tim Tebow has ever participated.

--Turnovers will always be a killer, and were in last Sunday's loss.

--But just as responsible for Denver's loss to the Patriots were busted coverages and missed tackles that added up to 41 points allowed.

--New England had 15 completions of 10-plus yards, including gains of 46, 33, 25, 21, 38 and 22 four of those coming from tight ends.

--After the game, cornerback Champ Bailey lit into his mates in the secondary in not-so-subtle fashion.

--All three of Denver's blowout losses have come while facing some of the league's premier passers. Matt Stafford threw for 267 yards and three touchdowns. Aaron Rodgers put up 408 yards and four scoring passes, before Brady's strong output Sunday.

--Even with three sacks allowed last week vs. Miami, the Bills are tied for the fewest sacks allowed in the league at 20.

--Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has been forced into mistakes, throwing a league-high 19-interceptions, and is just 1-6 since signing a $59 million contract extension.



SERIES HISTORY: 35th regular-season meeting. Broncos lead series, 15-18-1. Denver's last game in Buffalo was one of the most memorable in recent seasons ending on a scramble to get the field goal unit onto the field in a 15-14 decision in the 2007 opener. But the last meeting with the Bills was among the least memorable, too, for Broncos fans. Denver on Dec. 21, 2008 lost 30-23 at home as part of a three-game season ending losing streak that ended up costing the franchise its first AFC West title since 2005.

"It affects you, But this is a professional football league. You've got to find a way to do it. Young guys have to step up. We shouldn't miss Dawkins that much, but unfortunately, we did."-Champ Bailey

""I guess I haven't had to play in too many of them since I played at Florida, but we play outside here. I know it's not quite as cold as Buffalo, but I should be OK"-Tim Tebow


"We said from Day 1 that we've got a lot of growth to do on this defense. And we continue to have a lot of growth. We still have a lot of young players that are playing for us, and we've got to continue to get them better. We'll eventually be where we want to be. We're just not quite there yet."Dennis Allen

"This week we know going to Buffalo is obviously a tough venue, but we're going to put on our hard hats and put on our business suits for this business trip and try to play our best ball again."- Brian Dawkins

"I can't predict that. He's (Tebow) gotten better every week. Six or seven weeks ago, people said he couldn't hit the broad side of a barn. He does that. I think he can do that." -John Fox

Dear Santa,

I only want two things for Christmas this year -- A Broncos win and a Raiders loss today.

Oh, and world peace. Sorry, make that three things.

This is gonna be a great game. If we win the turnover battle, we win the war.

The Broncos became famous under Shannyham and McStalin for end-of-season meltdowns and letdowns. Tomorrow, we'll embark on an new era! Let the momentum begin!

Happy Holidays, Happy Hanukkah, and Merry Christmas to all.

Pretty much every game Broncos play is scary. They just aren't explosive enough to feel like games will be easy.

Enjoy the games guys, due to a hair appointment and the fact that the damned game is not televised in Arizona, but instead the Cardinals are being shown, I will not see today's game...yes...I know, links, but am at the parents house and don't believe in messing with other people's equipment. At any rate I am sure I will catch the highlights tonight.

Here's to a very Merry Christmas for our boys and for everyone, whether you celebrate the actual holiday or not or Festivus, just have a wonderful gameday.

It's been rough. I got to see the MNF 1st week of the season (got 4 hours of sleep for work), and then I got the TNF game. I had to go to the bar every other week (even last week ...... stupid eagles). Thank you CBS for an early Christmas present. Sucks being a Bronco fan in PA.

Fairly confident that Denver takes this one--predicted 21-13 Broncos in another thread. While the ground game should prevail, I've got a hunch the Bill's defense won't key on Decker and he'll break out from a slump with some big pass plays.

We've done poorly at Buffalo in years past.
Tough close games.
The Tebow mojo will have a positive effect for us this time around
Go Broncos!!!

This is a game where if Denver can win convincingly, they send a message that they are a contender. If it's close or of course if they lose, welook like an overhyped team with no luck left.

Todays game is a statement of who we are. We come off a loss to a superior team late in the season. With all the media coverage and the Bills out of it, they will be motivated to knockoff the Broncos to gain something out of a very disappointing season. Buffalo Playoff Game. We have destiny in our hands just like any good team wants to have with the Chargers finally starting to play like we expected them to and coming up fast. Beware of a team that has nothing to play for but their pride.

We are about to find out who we are.
