Of the four games after the bye, three straight are on the road. No matter who you are, that’s a tough stretch.

It seems like yesterday we couldn’t wait for the season to start, and now we’re four games into the season. When the Denver Broncos start 3-1, that no doubt aids in how fast the time goes.

On the latest Mile High Report Radio Podcast, Adam Malnati and I hit rewind and then fast-forward on the Broncos season as the team enters its bye. Adam pushed the rewind button on Wednesday when he looked at the surprises from the first quarter of the season. I’ll take a look into the future.

Before we go any farther, Denver sent out its weekly release and an interesting note was included. As it stands right now in the NFL, the earliest teams have their bye is Week Five. This is only the fifth time in franchise history they have had their bye in Week Five or earlier. As those who listen to the show know, Adam and I occasionally go off on tangents. Anywho, back on track.

As John Fox would say, the next quarter of the season is the most crucial for Denver. Unlike Fox, hopefully this team has a plan and isn’t caught off guard. Of those four games, three straight are on the road. No matter who you are, that’s a tough stretch. When you throw in the cross-country travel, that gets even tougher. Those three road games are against the Los Angeles ChargersKansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles.

For the first game out of the bye, they host the as-of-now winless New York Giants on Sunday Night Football. The Broncos need Eli Manning and New York to beat the Chargers this Sunday for no reason other than you don’t want to play an 0-5 team.
