What a treat for the Denver Broncos.  It’s not often you get to play professional football in front of 27,000 (if they sell out) indifferent fans.

That’s exactly the incredible wave of opposition the Broncos will be up against in Los Angeles, though.

It is delicious that the city of Los Angeles never threw any support behind NFL franchises when they were there and owners decided to drop not one but two teams into the market.

The Rams are good and their home games draw fewer fans than Broncos training-camp practices.

The Chargers?  On offense their offseason play was to “get another year older”.  The defense remains largely unchanged.  The Chargers need to hope for continued good health for Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram or risk eroding the almost 25,000 fans (probably half of them Chargers fans) the team currently draws.

Prediction:  Broncos (8-2,2-1) 19-11
