    Check Google Earth.

    Invesco Field rests at 5190 feet - 90 feet short of a mile.

    :D

    It may be a myth. However, no matter if it's a mile high or a sea level, home field advantage is not a myth. Having said that, I'm very confident today that we will win.

    You are right.

    The difference in oxygen levels between 5190 and 5280 feet is quite significant. The Pats got nothing to worry about. All these stories about the air being thin and it being hard for the players to breath? Nuttin but a myth!

    Within 1.7%. Close enough for government work!

    East Denver? Oh, troll smell. Same smell, maybe?

    There might be something to that thin air thing...

    Lack of oxygen in Denver would certainly explain the poor intelligence demonstrated by the majority of Broncos fans posting here
