The Squeeze: Game day and 'The Underdog'

Good morning, #BroncosCountry –

It's game day! The Broncos are in Kansas City getting ready for the game – where will you be at game time? While you're waiting, here are three things you should catch up on, starting with 'The Underdog.'

1. Don't call Harris underrated

Broncos' cornerback Chris Harris Jr. has seen his fair share of ups and downs as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Kansas.

But all those ups and downs have made him stronger, and he talked to the Players Tribune about those experiences.

This season, Harris was ranked No. 4 on Pro Football Focus' Top -100 players, a list that is completely based off of stats.

But on the NFL's top-100 list, a list that is voted on by players rather than based off of facts, Harris didn't even make this list.

"And I didn't give up a single play over 22 yards. Zero and zero. If I was a pitcher in baseball, I'd have pitched a shutout — for an entire season," wrote Harris. "Remembered by facts and forgotten by opinions: That's the life of the undrafted underdog in the NFL."

2. Broncos are ready to go

WR Bennie Fowler keeps it short and sweet

* S Omar Bolden is ready to play under that sunshine!*

* OLB DeMarcus Ware knows it's a beautiful day to play ball*
