0-0, T-1st AFC West
The Broncos really struggled last season and that was due to Drew Lock’s poor play and injuries. Drew Lock severely regressed in his development, which really pigeon holed what the Broncos could do on offense. They added Teddy Bridgewater this offseason to compete for the starting job and with important guys like Von Miller, Bradley Chubb, and Courtland Sutton returning from injury this season, the Broncos could be a serious problem in the AFC. Phillip Lindsay is gone, so now it is up to Melvin Gordon to carry a bulk of the rushing game load. Young explosive receivers like K.J. Hamler and Jerry Jeudy are also back with a dynamic receiving tight end in Noah Fant to make this Broncos offense something special if the right quarterback is playing. The defense should be good as always as it’s hard to have a bad defense when you have guys like Von Miller, Bradley Chubb, Justin Simmons, Kareem Jackson, and free agent signee Kyle Fuller.
