Bucky Brooks from NFL Network asked current players and coaches where the toughest place to play in the NFL was and put together a top five list based on the results.
The Broncos came in third, in front of Green Bay and division rival Kansas City. Much to the chagrin of Broncos fans everywhere, the only teams that ranked above Denver was New England and Seattle.
Bucky had this to say about Sports Authority Field at Mile High:
The prospect of facing a healthy Peyton Manning on his home turf is already a daunting task, but dealing with the five-time MVP in high altitude routinely forces opponents to tap out before the closing bell. The Broncos sport a 22-2 record at home over the past three regular seasons, thanks in large part to a high-octane offense that puts opponents on their heels with a warp-speed tempo and flawless execution. In addition, Denver’s hard-hitting defense suffocates opponents, as the ferocious pass rush feeds off a boisterous crowd that disrupts offensive communication.
