Honestly , I think the Broncos will go 5-0 to finish the season 10-6.
Case Keenum is limiting mistakes (basically what he did in Minnesota) and Phillip Lindsay is a F’ing badass!!! How is this dude not even in the top 5 RBs for fan voting in the Pro Bowl? For shame Broncos Country, for shame!!! Get him in there!Part of me wants to fly out to Cincy to watch this beatdown, but honestly, I need to pack. I haven’t even started yet. Thank Jared Veldheer Jersey goodness I’m a party of one and don’t have a lot of stuff. But fear not, predictions and power rankings will continue. Last week I nailed a few good games but honestly, who saw Baker Mayfield going off on Cincy? And you know what? If Baker can do it, can’t Keenum and the Broncos? I tell you one thing, they’ll need to get Courtland Sutton more involved. But I love how the Broncos are trending. It feels great to be a fan again. I was finding myself emotionally checking out for a while there, but I’m back baby! And so should you!For the last few weeks, I’ve touched on the topic of our coaching staff and why Vance Joseph might be worth retaining. Let me pose this question to you: Something changed these last few weeks. We went from losing a few close games to winning the games. Something happened. Something clicked. What is that something? Could it maybe be our coaching staff gaining the experience we say players need to gain by playing? Could it be our coaching staff getting better at their jobs? Could it be our coaching staff pulling this team together and getting them hungry again? Because if that’s what happened, then is that not worth retaining and building on instead of blowing up? Maybe Vance Joseph simply needed time on the job and experience. Players need time and experience, and I’d argue that coaches do as well. What would another offseason with the same coaches and coordinators look like in 2019? From the dumpster fire sh*t show of a team we saw last year, we are about to double our wins. Going from a 5-11 team to a *hopefully* 10-6 team. That’s what continuity and familiarity and growth looks like. So what if we keep this train going? Could we be an 11-13 win team next year? I’ve said for years with rookie players (such as QBs) that you need to play them, because you’re gonna have pain, and it can either be growing pains or just pain. So lets make it growing pains so we see if we can be good. Well, that’s what this looks like with our coaches. It looks like we went through growing pains and we just might be seeing some real growth for current and future success. That’s what the plan needs to be for every franchise. It’s just that Elway seemed to be far too “knee jerk, instant gratification” for his and our own good. I guess that’s what Peyton Manning will do for you when he falls in your lap. But now that we are living in the real world again, Elway needs to chill out (as do the fans) and realize that growing pains are real and that the players and coaches should be given that chance. Again, Peyton Manning was both a tremendous blessing and an amazing curse. The blessings were everything we witnessed, the curse was the last 3 years as it created a false expectation of how good the team was ran and coached. We’ve suffered that pain for two years. So let’s start seeing the growth from that pain and not blow it up. Something good is happening right now, let’s keep it going and see how much better we can be after yet another year together!Last Week: 11-4Overall: 109-64-2New Orleans Saints (10-1) at Dallas Cowboys (6-5) 6:20pm FOX/NFLN TNFThe Cowboys are surging and heading in the right direction. Amari Cooper is meshing just fine in Dallas, and win, lose, or draw, they’ll exit the week leading the NFC East, meaning they just might make the playoffs. Meanwhile Drew Brees, Alvin Kamara, and Michael Thomas are shredding defenses up like it’s nobody’s business. Hell, Thomas already has over 1,000 yards and they’ve only played 11 games! I’ll stop gushing about the Saints long enough to take a breath and get a prediction out, I promise. Prediction: Cowboys 19, Saints 37Baltimore Ravens (6-5) at Atlanta Falcons (4-7) 11:00am CBSLamar Jackson isn’t exactly lighting the NFL world on fire, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that he’s undefeated (2-0) as the starter. Meanwhile the Falcons are a hot mess who I just don’t trust to do much of anything whether at home or on the road. Prediction: Ravens 17, Falcons 20Denver Broncos (5-6) at Cincinnati Bengals (5-6)11:00am CBSThese two teams have the same record but are going in the opposite direction. The Bengals are pretty awful, and the Broncos seem to be finding themselves. Their offense is starting to make some noise, and their defense is bending but not breaking, which is almost all you can ask for anymore in today’s NFL where every single rule is made to cripple defenses. Emmanual Sanders Connor McGovern Color Rush Jersey , Phillip Lindsay, Von Miller, Bradley Chubb, and Chris Harris Jr. are anchoring this team and straight willing the Broncos to victory. Special shout out to the Broncos Offensive Line. Who’d have thought that all the backups and third stringers were the answer? The only bad thing is that this is an early game on the east coast, which is kryptonite to the Broncos. Prediction: Broncos 27, Bengals 9Los Angeles Rams (10-1) at Detroit Lions (4-7) 11:00am FOXFresh off their bye week and looking to dominate. They might not be fully healthy (Talib), but they’re getting there. Who’s their next victim? The Detroit “try hard, but only kinda” Lions. Prediction: Rams 24, Lions 10Arizona Cardinals (2-9) at Green Bay Packers (4-6-1) 11:00am FOXThe Cardinals are possibly the worst team in the NFL. Actually, they are the worst team in the NFL. They try to win but loose while a few other bottom feeders are trying to lose yet win every once in a blue moon. Meanwhile the Packers are just awful. Will they actually finish dead last in their division? I’m so tired of picking them simply because of Aaron Rogers, but dammit, the Cardinals are just that bad. Prediction: Cardinals 13, Packers 27Cleveland Browns (4-6-1) at Houston Texans (8-3) 11:00amCBSWho’d have ever thought that the Cleveland Browns would have the same exact record as the Green Bay Packers while Aaron Rogers is still in his prime? Baker Mayfield straight lit it up last week and just reminds me how badly I wanted him the entire offseason and how I was so crushed when he went #1. Anyways, the Texans are gonna win. Their offense is too good and the addition of Demaryius Thomas seems to be working out nicely for them. Prediction: Browns 20, Texans 27Indianapolis Colts (6-5) at Jacksonville Jaguars (3-8) 11:00amCBSTalk about two teams heading in opposite directions! Andrew Luck and his cast of characters are out scoring their opponents (because their defense still sucks), and the Jaguars just benched their best, I mean worst QB. Where is all this “Jags will make it to the Super Bowl” picks now? Step up and own this crap! Prediction: Colts 27, Jaguars 19Buffalo Bills (4-7) at Miami Dolphins (5-6) 11:00am CBSJosh Allen and the Bills pulled out an impressive victory last week and Ryan Tannehill and the Dolphins confirmed that they are paper tigers. But this is in Miami and the Bills just still look like they are confused by the game of football a lot of the time. I have no faith in Miami, but I have even less faith in Buffalo. Prediction: Bills 17, Dolphins 23Chicago Bears (8-3) at New York Giants (3-8) 11:00am FOXI keep catching hell from people for having the Bears ranked so high (3rd highest in NFC), yet they’re 8-3 and soon to be 9-3. All they have to ever say is “yeah, but they haven’t beaten anybody!” Guess what suck wads? The Patriots have 5 rings having “not beaten anybody” in their last 19 seasons! So honestly, stop with your ridiculous narrative. They’re beating the teams they’re suppose to beat. What more can be asked of them? Oh yeah, the Giants are playing. I forgot they were even an NFL team anymore. Prediction: Bears 32, Giants 17Carolina Panthers (6-5) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-7)11:00am FOXThe Panthers need a slump buster badly, which is fortunate because the Bucs are ugly, real real ugly. Consider this an early Christmas present. Prediction: Panthers 31, Bucs 27Kansas City Chiefs (9-2) at Oakland Raiders (2-9) 2:05PM CBSIt isn’t like the Chiefs needed any help to go into Oakland and beat the Raiders by double digits, but they are fresh off their bye week and rested and healthy. Division game be damned, this is gonna be embarrassing. Prediction: Chiefs 34, Raiders 17New York Jets (3-8) at Tennessee Titans (5-6) 2:05pm CBSThe Titans really aren’t all that good or that impressive, but the Jets flat out suck. Maybe Tennessee can look like they’re trying this week for a change? Maybe put their stamp on the lower back of New York? Prediction: Jets 17, Titans 20Minnesota Vikings (6-4-1) at New England Patriots (8-3) 2:25pm FOXThis one is EASY to pick... Kirk Cousins can’t beat a winner, and last I checked, the Patriots were a winning team. Whether it’s home or away, Cousins will guarantee money his way to a loss when the competition is .500 or better. Losers gonna lose, and cheaters gonna cheat. L+C carry the 2b https://www.broncosfanstore.com , minus 4k and you get... Prediction: Vikings 23, Patriots 34San Francisco 49ers (2-9) at Seattle Seahawks (6-5) 2:25pm FOXThis really shouldn’t be a contest at all, but some how, some way, Seattle will let the 49ers hang around far too long. The crowd will be hopped up on coffee because alcohol for tailgating is illegal, which is the real reason they are a loud bunch. It isn’t because they’re actual fans. Real fans stick with their team through thick and thin, not jump on the bandwagon as soon as they have success (right “Patriot Fans”)? Prediction: Niners 17, Seahawks 24Los Angeles Chargers (8-3) at Pittsburgh Steelers (7-3-1) 6:20pm NBC SNFThis really should be a good game because they are both good teams. But Phillip Rivers will have to carry the Chargers on his own with Melvin Gordon out, and the Steelers are so much better at home than on the road. Roethlisberger should have about 350 yards and 4 TD’s. What will Rivers have? Less than that of course. Prediction: Chargers 27, Steelers 35Washington Redskins (6-5) at Philadelphia Eagles (5-6) 6:15pm ESPN MNFEven with the Cowboys losing at home and the Eagles playing a team without a real QB, they still won’t be in first place thanks to them getting slapped around a few weeks ago by the Cowboys. Focus Pete, Redskins vs Eagles. Ok, well, this game is in December, in Philly, so I’m sure the fans will be in all their a-hole glory. Keep it classy Philly! Prediction: Redskins 9, Eagles 24 There is something ominous about a must-win game in Week Five.That’s where the Denver Broncos sit as they head east to face the New York Jets on Sunday. Yes, there’s that sense for the game, but also for what lies ahead; especially if Denver loses. After New York, in two of the next three games the Broncos host the Los Angeles Rams and are on the road for the Kansas City Chiefs.As Adam Malnati and I talked about on the latest MHR Radio Podcast, if Denver (2-2) gets back on track against the Jets (1-3), it doesn’t guarantee squat, but it’s a heck of a lot better than the alternative. If the Broncos lose, they’re staring down a four-game losing streak, and, in the best case scenario, will win one of six games. Not to compound that ominous sentiment, but Denver’s lack of success on the road doesn’t help. In the last six games played in the East Coast, the Broncos are 1-5. Overall, in the last nine road games they’re 1-8 and 4-13 in the last 17. Buckle up, Broncos Country.Offensive RankingsDenver: Thirteenth in overall offense (383.3 yards), third in rushing (148.3), 19th in passing (235.0) and 25th in points (21.0).New York Jets: Twenty-ninth in overall offense (289.3 yards), tied for 25th in rushing (88.0), 27th in passing (201.3) and 21st in points (22.3).Defense RankingsDenver: Seventeenth in overall defense (366.8 yards), eighth in rushing (93.8), 20th in passing (273.0) and 17th in points (24.3).New York Jets: Thirteenth in overall defense (355.5 yards) Denver Broncos Customized Jerseys , 16th in rushing (108.3), 14th in passing (247.3) and 13th in points (22.3).Here are our keys to the game. Run. The. Damn. Ball If you read MHR after the loss to the Chiefs, it seemed all of our stories hammered Bill Musgrave for the lack of running game, play calling and whom he had on the field in key situations. There’s a reason for that — the Broncos offensive coordinator played a major role in their loss. For the life of me, over two days later, I still can’t wrap my head around calling 22 run plays and rookie Royce Freeman gets only eight. Eight freaking carries for a guy Kansas City still hasn’t tackled. And he wasn’t on the field in the most crucial drive of the game midway through the fourth quarter. That has to change on Sunday. As the stats show, it’s what Denver does well and the Jets can’t stop. Run the damn ball, and get Freeman 15-20 carries. — Ian St. Clair Take advantage of matchups Sign up for FanPulse, our weekly Broncos survey.When the Broncos do pass, Keenum needs to find crossers over the middle of the field. The Jets are an elite pass defense on the boundaries but their backers are exploitable in coverage. I talk about this in GIF Horse, but the Jacksonville Jaguars did this masterfully. — Just_JoRoPaging Von Miller The Broncos need a bounce back game, and their star linebacker is taking a little flack from fans right now. Miller is supposed to be a game changer, but the last two games have seen him vanish a little. With a rookie quarterback under center for the Jets, this seems like the type of game that Miller could tar over. With the lack of turnovers created by the defense, pressure on the QB could lead to a few picks, and strip sacks. Miller needs to be a true game wrecker, and the defense needs to grab some turnovers. — Adam MalnatiPete Trifecta First: Cut Devonte Booker. Any playing time he has is stolen playing time from Freeman and Phillip Lindsay, who I have watched pass block plenty well.Second: Feast on a rookie QB. Listen to Chris Harris Jr and stay aggressive. Don’t give up the easy plays.Third: Start Chad Kelly. Guess what? Last I checked, he hits receivers/tight ends running free down the sideline in stride for touchdowns. He doesn’t overthrow them by a country mile. — Pete Baron Utilize Courtland Sutton One pleasant surprise we got from Monday Night’s loss to the Chiefs was the rookie receiver. He showed us the unique ability to maintain focus on passes, even when wearing defenders as a blanket. This isn’t new to those who have been watching him since training camp, but it is something that should continue. He’s big and strong, and knows how to make plays. I feel like whomever is throwing to him just has to get the ball within his radius and you will get the effort it takes to make the catch. I look for the second- and third-string players to be more impactful this week. There’s too much talent not to take advantage of it. — Casey Barrett Calm the f@$k down! This is for players, coaches and fans. Focus on playing mistake-free football. No hook-and-ladders, no end-arounds (well, OK, one of those with Emmanuel Sanders scoring a touchdown is fine), no putting Shaquil Barrett in coverage downfield. Play aggressive pass-rush defense with the Orange Rush and utilize the playmakers on offense. I know it’s trendy in here to call for more Freeman, and I’m not against that, but mostly I would do anything that takes advantage of Andy Janovich’s talent because he’s the true hero in that rush attack and apparently is damn good catching 32-yard passes too. — Laurie Lattimore-Volkmann The MHR Radio Podcast is now on iTunes, Google Play, Spotify, Stitcher and TuneIn.
