Key Matchups Abound in Week 11
It’s onto Week 11 in the NFL. And believe it or not, the Denver Broncos/Russell Wilson Comeback Tour is still showing signs of renewed life.
For the second week in a row, the Broncos have hit Prime Time stage, and host the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday night. This caps a two-week central stage appearance for the Broncs, who played the Buffalo Bills for the previous Monday night game.
(The results of that Bills contest weren’t available as of press time. At the time of this writing, the Broncos sported a 3-5 record, while the Minnesota Vikings held a 5-4 mark.)
The Broncos are still upbeat from their earlier victory against the Super Bowl champs (KC Chiefs) but they face another surmountable opponent this week.
Game time for the Nov. 19 prime time showdown is 6:15. Just in time to grab a cold one and hearty Monday night meal at your favorite sports bar/hangout and enjoy the hearty pigskin entertainment.
The game should actually be pretty evenly matched. A number of weeks ago, the Vikes would have definitely had the edge, but then they lost star quarterback Kirk Cousins. However, second-in-command, Joshua Dobbs, has filled in pretty well.
All in all, it should be a good game. Both teams are flawed but have a bit of a hot streak when they are on their game.
As for other hot games this week, all football eyes will be watching the rematch of last year’s Super Bowl, match, as the KC Chiefs host the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night football. And on Sunday morning, there is the great inter-league rivalry between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cleveland Browns (no love between these teams and their respective communities), or the Packs versus the Chargers. For Sunday afternoon fun times, check out the Seahawks versus the Rams.
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.
They offer a prime spot also for Thursday night games, which are almost impossible to view these days, unless by streaming. This Thursday’s game pits the Bengals against the Ravens.
If college pigskin is more to your liking, you are in definite luck. The humbler Air Force Falcons (thanks to their “chokesville” disastrous outing against Army) will host UNLV on Saturday, with a game time of 1:30 p.m. Air Force is still experiencing one of their best seasons in recent history and is in the hunt for a good Bowl Game. Our Prime Time CU Buffs will host Washington State on Friday night, with a game time of 8:30 p.m. CU has experienced some hiccups, following their amazing start. It seems the theatrics of Coach Prime Time, Deion Sanders, have generated more attention; and with that comes a lot more pressure and expectations. Still, their improvements from last year’s team, are quite impressive. Meanwhile, CSU will host the Nevada Wolf Pack at on Saturday at 1 p.m.
McGinty’s is a great viewing spot and hangout for college ball.
