The Denver Broncos (3-3) enter Sunday Night's matchup with the New Orleans Saints (2-4) at Sports Authority Field at Mile High coming off a 35-24 victory over the San Diego Chargers followed by a bye week. The Saints enter this road game in Denver having won their past two games, including a 35-28 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last Sunday. The Broncos are currently tied on top of their division in the AFC West, while the Saints are jockeying for playoff position in a tight NFC playoff race.
