The Broncos home opener against the Chargers will include several special events to honor fans.
“MILE HIGH” SALUTE
Today’s game will be dedicated to current and former members of the U.S. Military Forces. Representatives from the four branches of the Military (Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines) will be honored during the pregame ceremony immediately before the National Anthem, which will be performed by the Air Force Academy Band – Blue Steel. A B-2 Bomber will perform a fly over during the anthem.
To celebrate and acknowledge the passion of the 25,362 fans seated in the upper level, the Broncos have deemed the 5th level of INVESCO Field at Mile High be officially recognized as “Thunder, Colorado.”
“We appreciate the passion and energy of all of our fans but wanted to especially recognize those in the upper level for helping us provide our team with a home field advantage and making INVESCO Field at Mile High one of the loudest stadiums in the NFL,” said Greg Carney, Vice President of Marketing for the Broncos.
On Sunday, ticket holders in Thunder, CO, will be involved in a card stunt saluting the military. After the Anthem is concluded, season ticket holders will flip the cards over to show all fans in the stadium the new name of the upper deck.
DARRELL JACKSON DOWNGRADED
On Saturday the Broncos added a calf injury to wide receiver Darrell Jackson on the team’s injury report and downgraded his status for today’s game to questionable. The remainder of the Broncos injury report remained the same as Friday.
