Broncos Play Out The String Sunday Against Raiders
The Denver Broncos Are Forced To Play Out the String Sunday Against the Oakland Raiders. No chance at the playoffs exists.
Sunday, all the Denver Broncos can do is play out the string as they host the Oakland Raiders.
As of late Christmas night, the Broncos knew their season was, for all intents and purposes, over.
The 33-10 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs confirmed many of the Broncos’ problems in 2016.
The inability to run the ball in key situations and the lack of balance on offense is appalling.
Even the vaunted defense was too exhausted in the 4th Quarter Sunday, with nothing left to give.
The Broncos’ inability to play complementary football has been a problem all season.
Denver is 29th in the NFL in 2016 in possession time. Only the Giants, Browns and 49ers have possessed the ball less than the Broncos.
This is why, as I stated in my column earlier this week, I expect changes to occur.
Despite this, head coach Gary Kubiak is saying Trevor Siemian gets the start at QB. If reserve Paxton Lynch plays at all, it will be in the second half.
Executive of football operations/general manager John Elway will do many things to improve.
Denver sportscaster Vic Lombardi believes a ’50-50-chance’ exists Kubiak does not return.
As for Sunday’s game, here’s the injury report from San Francisco Chronicle Raiders beat writer Vic Tafur.
In a show of pathos, Wolfe showed his disappointment on Twitter.
Despite the pall of no playoffs, the weather will still be good Sunday.
Our awesome friend, meteorologist Lauren Whitney of CBS 4 Denver has the forecast here.
