That's a quality cut and paste right there.
Six(!!!) 11am games. I can't believe that. That's almost an unreal number. Six.
Two Monday nighters and the Thanksgiving tilt with the Jints they announced earlier. Three prime-time games is down from years past. You've got former QB, uniform number six to thank for that.
The real problem though, is weeks 4-12. Denver could lose seven of those eight weeks. See if you can spot the week we don't lose.
They'll probably take at least a couple of those games, but that's a pretty tough stretch. Drawing the AFC North and NFC East in the rota doesn't make the rebuild go any smoother.
Best case, 9-7. Worst case, 4-12
