Oh intangibles handicappers will love this one. Former Broncos QB Jay Cutler returns to his lovelorn team. It marks the home debut of head coach Josh McDaniels who jilted Cutler and Kyle Orton, his replacement. Pro Bowl WR Brandon Marshall has been suspended for acting like a jackass. Last year he has 104 receptions. Denver has zero takeaways and six turnovers in the preseason so far.
The Bears will be facing a 3-4 defense when they open against Green Bay, so this game is the perfect dress rehearsal for them at it’s the same scheme employed by Denver.
Look for Chicago to air it out as offensive coordinator Ron Turner admitted he will call plays to learn who will win the No. 3 and 5 receiver spots.
New Broncos S Brian Dawkins will get his first action of the year. Dawk is a seven-time Pro Bowler. Broncos regulars will play into the third quarter.
For Denver, RBsLaMont Jordan and Knowshown Moreno both missed practice time, so Correll Buckhalter and Peyton Hills will be their top running backs.
Chicago has allowed a generous 121 rushing yards per game in the preseason so far, but Denver has gotten just 3.5 yards per carry.
