When the Broncos take the field for tonight’s season-opener vs. Oakland, expect an electric atmosphere within Sports Authority Field at Mile High. In addition to the game being played in front of a national audience on ESPN, the team will be wearing its alternate orange jerseys.
Players notice the extra energy that the orange uniforms seem to create.
“You think about the color, you get excited,” linebacker Mario Haggan said. “We get excited to wear that orange. When we walk in the stadium and see it oranged out, it sends some emotion through the players’ veins and I think that will a lot to do with how we play on Monday night.”
