Week 15. Just those words are frightening. We’re officially three weeks from the edge of the regular season, meaning the endless void of the offseason is creeping nearer.
And that’s why I fully plan on watching this awful, meaningless football game that shouldn’t even be played on this day of the week.
The Denver Broncos and Indianapolis Colts have seen their respective seasons come to an early end due to unfortunate quarterback situations. For the Broncos, it’s their own doing, failing to upgrade from last year’s disaster of Trevor Siemian. For some reason Denver thought Brock Osweiler was a good idea, and here they are at 4-9.
The Colts were a little less lucky, no pun intended. Andrew Luck and his shoulder issue have persisted for much longer than anyone anticipated and the Colts season has suffered for it. Jacoby Brissett has seen some improvement throughout the season, but his performance has been anything but Luck-ish.
Anyways, the point is I’m still going to watch this garbage game for two reasons:
- It’s football
- SKYCAM, BABY!
Here’s how you can watch along with me.
