Broncos Power Rankings Around the Web: Week 7

Broncos Power Rankings Around the Web: Week 7

The Broncos tumble after embarrassing themselves on Sunday night football. Predictably, the Broncos took a hit in the various power rankings after falling flat vs the Giants this weekend. Some sites penalized them more than others, some offering the benefit of the doubt while others pointed toward a very difficult month of games coming up next. Here are the Broncos’ Week 7 power rankings around the web: Mile High Report: 7. Denver Broncos Last Week: 2 (-5) A rookie head coach letting his team fall into a trap game the first time one comes around? That’s understandable, if not ideal....

Horse Tracks: Broncos embark on challenging three game road journey

Horse Tracks: Broncos embark on challenging three game road journey

The Denver Broncos embark on a three game road trip starting with the Los Angeles Chargers this weekend. How they fair over the course of the next three weeks will determine if they are playoff contenders or pretenders. Good morning, Broncos Country. The Denver Broncos embarrassed themselves on national television with their sound defeat against the New York Giants on Sunday Night Football. With their meltdown at Mile High, the Broncos are now two games behind the Kansas City Chiefs in the race for the AFC West crown. It’s not an insurmountable obstacle to overcome, but it is a...

Justin Simmons says Broncos need to learn from mistakes and focus on beating Chargers

Justin Simmons says Broncos need to learn from mistakes and focus on beating Chargers

Justin Simmons and the Denver Broncos can only watch tape and try to correct their mistakes. The focus now is 100% on beating the Los Angeles Chargers. The Denver Broncos lost in the ugliest way to the New York Giants, but Justin Simmons told Eric Goodman and Les Shapiro from The Afternoon Drive that all they can do is watch the tape and try to learn from it and focus on going 3-0 in the division with a win over the Los Angeles Chargers next week. That’s the right mindset to have, because dwelling on the ugliness of the loss is what us fans do. The players need to analyze and adjust to...

Broncos-Chargers odds Week 7: Denver underdogs heading into Los Angeles

Broncos-Chargers odds Week 7: Denver underdogs heading into Los Angeles

After opening slight favorites, the Denver Broncos are now underdogs against the Los Angeles Chargers. The Denver Broncos had opened 2.5 point favorites over the Los Angeles Chargers last week, but after an impressive comeback win over the Oakland Raiders by Los Angeles and an impressive choke job by Denver at home to the lowly New York Giants, the script has flipped. Denver is now a 1.5 point underdog to the Chargers. Frankly, that is fine by me. This team tends to thrive when they are underdogs and struggles as favorites. The Broncos knocked the Chargers on the heels early in their Week...

Play of the Week: A dagger of a pick six

Play of the Week: A dagger of a pick six

Trevor Siemian’s pick six all but sealed the Denver Broncos fate against the New York Giants. Each week I try to find the one make or break play for the Denver Broncos that really set the tone of the outcome of their game. Unfortunately, this game was put away by the New York Giants on this Janoris Jenkins pick six off Trevor Siemian. I didn’t think it was a terrible throw at first, but if you watch the replay you can see it from Siemian’s vantage point. It was a ball he should have never thrown and I can’t for the life of me figure out what he was seeing. The throw...

Vance Joseph: Broncos offense woes fall on the coaches and players; not just Siemian

Vance Joseph: Broncos offense woes fall on the coaches and players; not just Siemian

Trevor Siemian is getting a lot of the blame, but Vance Joseph is adamant that the blame game rests on the shoulders of the coaches and players. There has been plenty of blood letting in Broncos Country since Sunday after a woeful offensive performance from Denver against a New York Giants team on the ropes. Trevor Siemian threw the ball all day long and could only muster 3-points until the waning minutes of the game. But it was not his fault. At least according to head coach Vance Joseph. “It falls on the coaches and the players,” Joseph said of the offense. “Not just Trevor, but...

Broncos 3rd & Long: Embarrassing

Broncos 3rd & Long: Embarrassing

I’m not going to say much about the game outside on my two main topics. There is already a host of discussion happening. First down run defense The Broncos D was gashed for first time this season on first down. The Giants ran the ball 18 times for 102 yards on first down (5.67 ypc) which 47 of that coming on one run. Generally the they were not ripping off chunks yardage against us on first down (or any down) with the exception of that long run until late in the game with the defense was gassed (that when they get the 14 and 15 yard runs on first down). Those three runs accounted for 76...

Broncos vs Giants: The No Bull Review

Broncos vs Giants: The No Bull Review

The Denver Broncos lost in bad fashion to the New York Giants. Here are my thoughts, analysis, and opinions on the game. This is the point of the season where you start getting to the meat of what a team’s identity is. The next couple of games are going to really paint a good picture of who many teams in the NFL are. Yes, anything can happen. Late season runs are a thing. But we’re starting to see who the 2017 Denver Broncos are and the picture is coming in clearer week after week. For those of you who read my stuff regularly, please forgive my diversion. Usually I really like to hone...

NFL Power Rankings Week 7: Topsy Turvy Edition

NFL Power Rankings Week 7: Topsy Turvy Edition

Good teams mostly lost. Bad teams mostly won. Yet another weird week of NFL football. Forgive me if you don’t agree with everything you see below. Of the top 16 teams in my power rankings from last week, only 3 came away with victories during the Week 6 games. That makes for a tough time ordering teams and a few teams rising or falling further, or not as far, as they usually might. The Broncos’ loss was easily the most embarrassing, but they were by no means the only strong unit that went home with reason for regrets this week. Conversely, a lot of bad teams won this week, and then...

Good Morning Broncos Country! It was reported early Monday morning by ESPN’s Adam Schefter that Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian will likely undergo an MRI on his shoulder and that they fear he suffered another AC-joint injury.

Can this Broncos’ offense do enough going forward...or is it time for a change?

Can this Broncos’ offense do enough going forward...or is it time for a change?

The Afternoon Drive hosts subtly suggest Vance Joseph may have a QB question to answer if the offense can’t turn it around against the Chargers. The hand-wringing is in full force after a stunning loss to the Giants at Mile High on prime time Sunday, and Broncos Country is trying to figure out just what to make of this Broncos team. They struggled in Week 1 against the Chargers before gaining some momentum and a little luck to pull out the win, but then the Broncos completely dominated the Cowboys at home, giving promise to being a contender not just in the AFC West but the whole NFL. A...

Colts at Titans - Monday Night Football Live Blog

A game that looked like a meaningless game between mediocre teams now looks like a game of significance with the winner getting into the thick of the AFC playoff picture. The Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans look to capitalize on a slew of losses by AFC playoff contenders in Week 6. The winner of this game will move to .500 and keep pace with a big chunk of the conference. Marcus Mariota will play in this game, which should give the Titans a slight edge at home. The wild card will be Jacoby Brissett who could be a big factor for the Colts if they are to win this game. Colts vs....
