If you see BLUE in your area on the map above, yoYou will get the Broncos-Eagles game at your local CBS affiliate. If you live in Alaska or Hawaii, you won’t have a Broncos game again this week.
For a young team trying to find their identity, you could easily see these Denver Broncos fail against the Philadelphia Eagles just a week after a huge upset victory. It’s something seasoned executives like Teddy Bridgewater are trying to prevent this week as they prepare. He made some poignant remarks about how guys can stay focused on the task at hand.
“You just have to respect the game, respect your opponent and never forget this dark place we were in a few weeks ago,” Bridgewater said on Wednesday. “It’s a time in sport where it can be dangerous. Just a few weeks ago you’d hear, ‘Ah, you suck. Get rid of that person and swap that guy. Then you win a game or two and you’re like, “Oh, you’re the best. You have to ignore everything because in this game there will be ups and downs. I think when you go through these times when you lose it tests your character. With us, it was a test of our character during these four weeks where we did not come away with a victory. Coming away with two consecutive wins also tests your character. How are you going to respond? Are you going to feel like you’ve arrived, or are you going to approach her like, Hey man, our job isn’t done. We still need to focus on this game and then several more games after that. You just have to respect the game and respect your opponent.
I left the entire quote in there because it showed how, if you listen to the noise of the moment, it can distract you from the task in front of you. Even though these eagles are correct a 3-6 football team, this game is arguably the most important game of the season for these Broncos to date. Win here and the momentum continues into the second half of the season. Get lost here and the road ahead becomes infinitely more difficult.
Kick-off is set for 2:25 p.m. Mile High time on Sunday, November 14, 2021 at Empower Field at Mile High in Denver, Colorado. You can watch the match live stream via FuboTV or on your local CBS station.
