One of the big storylines from yesterday, and it would have been ever bigger if they lost, was how the Denver Broncos (specifically Peyton Manning) would play in a heavy, gusting wind.
Manning was on yesterday, no one will debate that. The likely MVP didn’t put up gaudy stats, but he finished with a couple of touchdown passes and picked up two huge third down conversions to seal the game late.
Still, in an ideal world, Broncos fans don’t want the team to play in the wind, cold or snow. Luckily, the early weather outlook for the AFC Championship Game on Sunday doesn’t look like it’ll feature any of those things.
Keep in mind too the Broncos are the “early” game, kicking at 1:00 p.m., and in theory finishing before sunset. Maybe God is a Broncos fan like those bumper stickers say.
The Broncos got bad news on cornerback Chris Harris JR. on Monday.
