It’s game day nation. The Raiders and Broncos are preparing to square off in primetime so that means we’ve only got a few precious hours to get you ready for the game.
Luckily FanSided boasts the most comprehensive coverage of the rival Broncos to be found on the net. Kim Constantinesco’s work over at Predominantly Orange makes her an expert on all things Denver and she’s always a sport when it comes to playing along with our unique line of questioning.
So sit back, relax and let JBB get you ready for the game with our patented 5 quirky questions.
Q: From Tim Tebow Magic to Peyton Manning Brilliance, it’s like that rare instance when the sequel is better than the original. If the Tebow to Peyton era were a film franchise which would it be and why?
A: Superman comes to mind here. Tebow came in and saved the Broncos’ last season, but unfortunately New England and passing were his kryptonite. It was a good show with plenty of thrilling scenes and reasons to clap, but the ending never really hit home. SuperMan II was the better version which brings us to Manning. With more experience and quarterback talent, this “character change” has saved the Broncos again. We’re in the middle of this movie, so you can ask me about the ending later.
Q: If John Fox took Dennis Allen out for drinks at a local dive bar what would the conversation be?
A: Who would win in a caged wrestling match? The coaches of the AFC West or the coaches of the NFC South?
Q: Von Miller sacks or Darren McFadden’s yards-per-carry: Which will be greater on Thursday?
A: McFadden’s yards per carry by .2, but Miller will have three more sacks than the Raiders’ entire defense this year when the night is over.
Q: By 2014 which will be greater: Number of John Elway sold cars on the road or Peyton Manning pizzas being delivered on any given day in Denver?
A: Except a partnership between Papa John’s pizza delivery drivers and the John Elway dealership. Team work makes the dream work.
And finally the most important question of all…
Q: Denver Defense/Special Teams: Start or Sit?
A: Start them. The Broncos held the Raiders to zero second half points and just two field goals in week 4. They’ve gelled even more since.
