KC-Denver games cannot be Flexed. CBS reserves both games.

Kind of wished our home game had been flexed, I love night games. But pretty cool that we're in the game so important that CBS is already protecting it.

How many games can they protect? Can the Patriots game be flexed?

Edit: NM it already is on SNF.

That has to be a factor for flexing KC game too. Can teams play back to back sunday night games?

I wouldn't want it, especially against a division rival. In fact the only thing good about the four game stretch coming out of the bye is that it is coming out of the bye.

@ Chargers
Chiefs
@New England
@Chiefs

Then we come home to a very physical Titans team and it's Chargers, @Texans, @Raiders. Thankfully the Texans appear to be in free-fall.

Yet every single year people make pre-season predictions based on schedule strength. Our once cake walk schedule doesnt seem so easy any longer.

I hope CBS flexes the at KC game to the late game timeslot. I hate missing church for a Bronco game, but I won't miss a minute of that one.

Well, the NFC East was pretty bad this year. That held up to the prediction of an easy schedule.

Selfishly I hate night games.

I can't stay up for 01:30am KO's and then expect to be civil to people at work the next day!!

Recordings just don't do it for me

"So I jump ship in Hong Kong and make my way over to Tibet, and I get on as a looper at a course over in the Himalayas. A looper, you know, a caddy, a looper, a jock. So, I tell them I'm a pro jock, and who do you think they give me? The Dalai Lama, himself. Twelfth son of the Lama. The flowing robes, the grace, bald... striking. So, I'm on the first tee with him. I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one - big hitter, the Lama - long, into a ten-thousand foot crevasse, right at the base of this glacier. Do you know what the Lama says? Gunga galunga... gunga, gunga-galunga. So we finish the 18th and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice."

I swear a lot of people were saying we had a hard schedule in the preseason. The games people thought would be cake walks were the division games.

This is good news for Denver, I think. Would rather not play a night game at Arrowhead.

This old guy likes afternoon November games too instead of a colder night game. I'm still thawing out from the Ravens playoff game ...

It doesn't seem that hard either. KC has gotten better but the Texans and Pats haven't gotten worse. I know those games are on the road but none the less, they're not the same teams from last year and 2 years ago.

In both of those games I honestly believe we can only beat ourselves. I'm not worried about this offense putting up 30+ points on either of those defenses. And with Miller and Champ back, I like our defense to hold them in the 20's. I just don't think many people realize how big of an impact a rusher like Miller makes. He disrupts alot of things. Not only on his sacks, his hurries will account for many incompleted passes as well as his run disrupting pressure. Champ will help also, of course, but Miller is almost unblockable 1 on 1.

Broncos already have the maximum of 5 prime time games this year, no more flex options for any of the games.

I thought it was 5 scheduled with a max of 6 (meaning 1 flex available)
