  • Snow and sub zero temperatures for the KC game

    The weather forecast for Denver this Sunday is for snow and temperatures of around -7C / 19F at kick off time.

    It will be interesting to see how this affects the game.

    Snow and cold did nothing to stop the Chefs in our game against them last December, that's for sure.

      Sounds like Denver and KC will play two consecutive snow games. The last one was snowing with snow on the field and the Broncos were wearing white uniforms. We'll see what it looks like on Sunday. Denver has been balanced on the season, so far. They will be ready to do whatever it takes on offense, and their defense is starting to feel it.

      I hope the whole State of Colorado gets at least a foot of the wettest snow possible as soon as possible, because they desperately need it.

        I think visibility was an issue.

          Just what we need for our young offense that is still having chemistry issues and drops from our receivers. Hopefully our running game is really strong and the defense plays twice as well against KC than it did against the Pats.

          Meanwhile, my local forecast says it should be mid 80s on Sunday. Should move the game to Arizona.

                I guess we could do a pats thing, and lose all their heaters on the sidelines.



                Seriously I am not sure it is a benefit to either team. I do feel like Denver is harder on opponents than many other locations, due to altitude. But Mahomes and company will prepare accordingly, and I believe we will as well. It may lower the projected score, and the ground games/short passing design will potentially dominate, but even so, a good receiver has an edge on defenders in less than wonderful weather. When I played receiver in "potentially" slippery/slick conditions, one good move and I could get open much easier than on regular turf.

                      Like that guy in a red shirt catching the ball in the EZ?

                        That's certainly true and goes way beyond sports. The entire Southwest has been in a drought, record high temps this year with unseasonal forest fires and we need as much precipitation (and snowpack in the high country) as possible.

                        That's true. Hopefully our team can play in these conditions this Sunday as well as or better than the stinkin' Chefs have. We really need the ball to bounce our way, or the defense to force turnovers and give us the momentum for most of the game.

                            Last year's snow game in KC was 3-23. I'm looking forward to watching this game for two reasons: to cheer the Broncos; and, to cheer the snow.

                            P.S. Don't forget the cleat wrench and the long cleats!

                              I may be crazy, but I see Denver winning this one. I think Fant and Jeudy go off in the wintry conditions. And Lock gets to use that cannon. And I have a feeling the defense plays lights out and is inspired by playing in the elements. Fingers crossed
