Week 4 of the NFL season has the Jacksonville Jaguars travel to Colorado and Mile High Stadium for the game against the Denver Broncos.
The Jacksonville Jaguars and Denver Broncos meet on Sunday with plenty on the line for both NFL teams.
For the Broncos, it is a chance to win their first game of the season. Denver has a new head coach in Vic Fangio and a feared pass rush that hasn’t been particularly intimidating. The Broncos do have a run game the Jaguars are aware of and will focus on in the high altitude out west.
The Jaguars, with Calais Campbell leading the way on defense and Gardner Minshew once again performing magic under center, got their first win of the season last week at home. After a 10-day layoff can the team ride yet another wave of emotions this week and pick up their second win in a row and make some noise in the AFC South.

The Jaguars are 5-5 all-time against the Broncos in the regular season, including 2-3 on the road. A win Sunday would mark the Jaguars’ first win in Denver since Oct. 12, 2008 (24-17).
What are your impressions of Vic Fangio so far as the Broncos head coach? I like how gutsy he has been with some of his play calling. I know the record does not show, but he could make an impact for the Denver Broncos. When you have almost all new starters and a new coaching staff, it will take some time to adjust.
Is Joe Flacco the right quarterback in Denver? Would you have brought in another signal-caller? For the time being, he is. He has played pretty well this season despite all that has gone on in the three games. The team just needs to protect him a bit better and limit the turnovers.
Bradley Chubb and Von Miller are imposing pass rushers. How do the Jaguars prepare for them? From what I have seen on film, just hope that Garner Minshew can get the football out in time. Quick passes are perhaps the only option. It has worked for Derek Carr, Mitch Trubisky, and Aaron Rodgers so far this season.
Which player needs to have a huge game this week? Von Miller and Bradley Chubb need to get to the quarterback. Denver has no sacks or takeaways this season. Something has to change. And they are the two guys to do it.
The Broncos win on Sunday if … They limit turnovers, force some of their own, and get to the quarterback. And limit, if not reduce to zero, the drive-killing penalties. If they can do that, they should win on Sunday.
