It’s a short week for the Denver Broncos with them having to play a game on Saturday. It’s especially short because they have to travel to the east coast for this one. That’s why John Fox and his coaching staff aren’t dwelling on yesterday’s 41-23 loss to the New England Patriots.
The coaching staff doesn’t see Sunday’s loss as a huge downslide. If anything it’s more of a learning opportunity before they hit their stride going into the playoffs.
“I thought we came out of the blocks a little faster,” Fox said. “I thought that was a positive. There’s positives and negatives about every game. Not just the losses.”
With that statement, the Broncos are ready to move on to their next opponent – the Buffalo Bills. The team is treating Monday like a Tuesday. They had the day off and they will resume preparations for the Bills on Tuesday.
“In this league you’ve got to have a short memory, and we’ve got to forget about it and get on to Buffalo,” Fox said. “We’ve said that after every game, win or lose.”
If there’s a team in this league that’s capable of getting back on track, it’s the Broncos. They started the season 1-4 and looked destined to be locked in for a high first round pick in the draft. They’ve gone 7-2 since the rough start.
“We’ve had a pretty resilient group and I think that won’t be a problem moving forward,” Fox said of his team’s mindset as the regular season ends.
The Bills have lost seven straight after surprising everybody and winning their first five of seven games. Buffalo is a good place to roam to nowadays.
