Broncos say they're not underestimating Giants' banged-up offense

The NFL can not flex a Sunday night game so early in the season.

Like so many football fans, the star Denver Broncos cornerback was eager for his marquee matchup with Odell Beckham Jr. before the Giants star receiver broke his left ankle against the Chargers last week.

Sunday, 8:30 p.m. ET, Sports Authority Field at Mile High. I'll be live blogging it here at so check back and follow along.

One of those resources mentioned was rookie tight end Evan Engram, whose raw athletic ability has already produced results in his rookie season with the Giants. Anderson has 585 scrimmage yards (97.5 per game) and six TDs (four rushing) in his past six games vs. the NFC. The Giants were seen as a playoff or Super Bowl contender.

Let's start with the slick back haired elephant in the room. Both coach Ben McAdoo and general manager Jerry Reese have been targets of criticism, and how this team responds to the latest round of adversity could be a factor in their fates at season's end.

When asked last season about the difficulties of being a rookie coach, McAdoo confessed it was hard to constantly be dealing with "dumpster fires". He's a dead man walking. Obviously, this is probably my fifth interview and every single one-it's insane how me and Demaryius haven't said anything about we want the ball or anything of that sort. This team is a mess. Teams have also punished Big Blue on third downs, converting at better than 42 percent, including 12 of 34 when the situation is third-and-6 or more yards. The Giants will also be without Brandon Marshall and Dwayne Harris for the rest of the campaign. That means Manning will be throwing to the likes of Roger Lewis, Tavarres King, Travis Rudolph and Ed Eagan. "When you start getting brand new guys who are new to the system, that's when it's tough". Rodgers-Cromartie was suspended indefinitely from the team after leaving the team's practice earlier in the week. Their injury report is loaded up, with Jonathan Cassillas, Landon Collins, Romeo Okwara, and Olivier Vernon all out. I don't see him playing. The Broncos have to play with emotion and focus. Away Team Denver has an atrocious offense, they turn the ball over and has a quarterback in Trevor Siemian that seems in way over his head.

This would ordinarily be a massive game between two teams competing for their respective division titles.

He's caught a healthy 19 passes for 200 yards and a touchdown in 2017. After limiting Chargers tight ends Antonio Gates and Hunter Henry to just 17 yards on two receptions in Week 1, the Broncos have surrendered 228 yards and two touchdowns on 22 receptions to tight ends in the last three games. Those are the players who have to lead the way in this one.

I don't know what the Giants' offense is going to look like, but I know I'm going to hate watching it.

"I lick my chops every week", Miller said.
