Monday night marked the start of the Denver Broncos 2020 season. Expectations were high despite Denver’s Pro-Bowl linebacker Von Miller being out due to a potential season ending injury which happened at the end of practice last Tuesday. Miller underwent surgery over the weekend to repair a tendon and despite initial reports that his 2020 season was done Miller is looking to make a return this season.

Additionally, Denver’s top receiver Courtland Sutton was missing in Monday night’s game. That left a whole lot of youth on the field with little veteran leadership on both sides of the ball.

The Denver Broncos hosted the Tennessee Titans in front of a crowd of 500, mostly friends and family. It was a strange sight not to see fans in the stands but because COVID-19 this may be the norm for some time. Aside from the new norm, fans at home were excited to see what Drew Lock and his young offense had to offer. Lock was 22 of 33 for 216 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions. The offensive line held up fairly well not giving up any sacks giving Lock plenty of time to get rid of the ball.

While Denver’s offensive line held up nicely, they did have troubles that were apparent which may have been a result of youth or rust. Denver’s number 1 pick in the 2020 draft Jerry Juedy dropped a couple of passes that could have extened stalled drives. Additionally, running back Melvin Gordon who took a majority of Denver’s carries over hometown favorite, Phillip Lindsay and even coughed up the ball resulting in a touchdown on the ensuing drive.

Despite the Titans missing 3 field goals and an extra point, they managed to kick the game winning field goal giving them a 10-7 win on the road.

In other sports the Denver Nuggets forced a game 7 with the L.A. Clippers after overcoming a 16 point Clippers lead. The Nuggets are becoming a post-season darlings after overcoming a 3-1 deficit against the Utah Jazz and now the L.A. Clippers. Game 7 had not been played by the time of this writing.

The Colorado Rockies were swept by the San Diego Padres in a three-game series last week and lost two of three against the L.A. Angels over the weekend. Colorado begins a two-game series with the Oakland A’s this week before starting a four game series with the L.A. Dodgers later this week.
