ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The last time the Denver Broncos and Los Angeles Rams met, it was under drastically different circumstances.
Not only was the game played in St. Louis — the two team’s starting quarterbacks were Shaun Hill and Peyton Manning.
Oh, what a difference four years makes.
Currently, the Broncos are riding a three-game losing streak, while the Rams are arguably the hottest team in football, sitting atop the NFL with an unblemished 5-0 record.
Back in 2014 when Hill and Manning squared off, the Broncos were 9.5-point favorites on the road, yet were stunned as the home team went on to beat them 22-7 in a game in which Denver ran the ball only 10 times.
On Sunday, the home team is yet again a heavy underdog — seven points to be exact — but this time it’s the Rams that are favored.
Can the Broncos be the team with the massive upset this Sunday?
