DENVER, CO. (WWLP) – The Patriots are in Denver, and so is 22News!
Some fans were concerned that the Patriots wouldn’t make it out before the snowstorm, but they arrived Friday night!
There is, however, still concern with their health. This past week, the team was expected to be the healthiest they’ve been in a while with few to no injuries reported.
The game status report came out Friday. 16 players are listed as questionable for Sunday’s game, including Danny Amendola, Julien Edelman and Rob Gronkowski.
Denver has no players listed as questionable.
Throughout the city, blue and orange ribbons are hanging from trees, buildings, even on cars.
22News was hoping to find some Pats fans at a rally downtown Friday, but it was a sea of orange.
We found something even better at Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium. There were several Pats fans from all over the country who just had to come see this game.
They said they weren’t allowed to buy their tickets directly, because they didn’t live in the Rocky Mountain region, but they bought them second-hand for a little more money.
Both Broncos and Patriots fans we spoke with said they expect a very close game, with the winning team clinching the victory in the last quarter by one touchdown.
We found pats fans in town also catching their first glimpse of Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium, which they won’t be able to see until Sunday.
Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium holds 76,125 people. Those seats are all expected to be filled for the AFC Championship game on Sunday.
On Saturday morning, the price for a ticket on the secondary market ranges from $250 to $6,000.
