The St. Louis Rams landed in Denver on Friday, all prepped and ready to go for a third preseason game, this one against the Broncos and Peyton Manning ... or at least Peyton Manning for a little while.
Nevertheless, the third preseason game is a little more involved than the others. Head coach Jeff Fisher acknowledged this week that there would be at least some game planning for this outing.
"It's going to be a great challenge for us," Fisher said. "Again, we're going to just watch them play, let them play. This is kind of a matchup game for us. We'll do a few things but you don't fool him. He knows where to go with the football. I've faced him a lot of times, and he's very, very competitive whether it's the third preseason game or whether it's the AFC Championship game."
But it is still a preseason game, a chance for the Rams to get ready for the regular season.
