DENVER — The game-time temperature for the Broncos’ victory over the Oakland Raiders was 92 degrees, the hottest home game in team history.
The warm temperatures did not keep the fans away as it was the 375th consecutive home sellout dating to 1970.
To accommodate fans, the Broncos set up several hydration stations throughout the parking lots and encouraged fans to drink lots of water.
