NFL Game Watching Tips: Broncos Versus the Jets

It’s onto Week Five in the grand Denver Broncos and Russell Wilson Revival Tour or disaster excursion.  Buy your tickets at your prime and favorite Teller sports bar, while they last.

Game time is 2:25  for this Sunday (Oct. 8) showdown, as the Broncos host the New York Jets at Empower Field at Mile High.  Finally, we have a good time for a Sunday afternoon football square-off between two teams that have quite a storied history against each other.

Both the Broncos and Jets have struggled this year.  The expectations for a high drama affair were earlier muted somewhat, when Aaron Rodgers suffered a season-ending injury. Prior to that, trash talk between both teams escalated due to an interview Broncos Head Skipper Sean Payton did in pre-season, when he lashed out at the free-for-all practices of former coach Nathaniel Hackett.  Rodgers was clearly not happy with Payton’s comments, and told him to quit criticizing his coach (Hackett now serves as an offensive coordinator for the Jets.). In fact, Rodgers went as far as saying that Payton was setting himself up for a probable failed season due to his comments against Hackett.

This is a hearty rivalry, with the two teams squaring off 40 times in the past, with Denver on the winning side for 22 times, including a playoff bout.

Most oddsmakers are favoring the Broncos, but contend this game could be a toss-up.

If you are looking for a great and fun place to check out the action, don’t forget McGinty’s Wood Oven Pub in Divide, the “The Center of the Known Universe,” the sponsor of our fine NFL Football page and Bronco previews and a slew of predictions.

McGinty’s, with its sports bar setup and winner of many Best Of awards in the High Country, offers a prime opportunity to view nearly all of the NFL games and partake in some great game food and drink specials. For Broncos’ games, they are offering great deals on Coors draft beers and Bloody Mary’s.

And don’t forget  Thursday night games, with McGinty’s emerging as a prime local spot for these games that are increasingly difficult for fans to watch on TV, unless they have the NFL package or prime video, or want to waste their time screening games…very boring. In other words, you need to take in this action at your favorite sports bar.

College Showdowns

If the Broncos game doesn’t fit your schedule and college pigskin is your thing,  you are in definite luck. CU, which is still the talk of the nation, travels to Arizona State on Saturday, with game time at 4:30 p.m. A win here would get CU back on track and make appearances of Mr. “Prime Time” (Coach Deion Sanders) more worthwhile.   Air Force gets a bye this week, but on Oct. 14, the Cadets will host Wyoming at 5 p.m.

McGinty’s is a great spot for college ball.
