So the Broncos are going to play their Week 11 game with the San Diego Chargers at 6:30 p.m. MDT — making them and the Chargers the second coupling of teams to have their slate affected by the NFL’s new flexible-scheduling policy for NBC’s prime-time broadcasts.
The Broncos will play one-third of their divisional schedule within a span of under 100 hours beginning on Nov. 19 at 6:15 p.m. MST and ending four nights later at approximately 9:15 p.m. MST. In between, the Broncos will have to practice, prepare and game-plan for the Chiefs, in addition to traveling to Kansas City.
Last year, the Broncos had a similar schedule when they played on Thanksgiving, playing at 2:15 p.m. MST on Sunday against the Jets and traveling to play Dallas 96 hours later … of course, those weren’t divisional opponents.
What do you think of having a rescheduled night game followed by a short week? Will this impact the Broncos in their quest to win the AFC West again?
