Good Morning, Broncos fans! After Thursday's explosive opener, the players are off today and tomorrow; John Fox provided no injury updates on Friday.
Opening at home on a Thursday, despite not having won the Super Bowl, is one of several gifts given the Broncos by the NFL's schedule makers (and the Orioles). Here are the others:
- Their bye week perfectly divides the season in two.
- Every team will have to play a Thursday after a Sunday, but in Denver's case, both games are at home. This is a tremendous advantage.
- Two of their road games come in the season's last two weeks, when they may have nothing to play for
Whatever the Broncos make of their 2013, don't ever forget how luck factors into it; their scheduling is part of that.
Here's what Fox had to say.
