Joshua: You’re a Broncos follower who knows more about how the weather and atmosphere affects opponents. What can Titans fans expect from that thinner air?

Kim: The effects of Mile High’s thin air are the real deal. Denver sits at 5,280 feet, and within a few snaps, drawing air into the lungs feels impossible for visiting players. Breathing becomes faster in order to bring a greater volume of air into the lungs, and the heart also has to beat faster in order to move more oxygen carrying cells past the muscle cells.

With that said, the Broncos’ offense really tries to wear visiting defenses out early with the no huddle. Fourteen weeks into the season, conditioning isn’t so much an issue, but bodies are really worn out.
