The Denver Broncos kick off their 2018 campaign on Sunday afternoon. How will the season go? The Predominantly Orange staff make their predictions.
Denver is looking to improve from their 5-11 record in 2017. Last season was by far the worst season since 2010. But the team appears to have improved quite a bit over the offseason. They added a quarterback in Case Keenum, who should improve the position.
The team also went and drafted Bradley Chubb. He is a player that should make a huge impact on the defense. The team lacked a sure fire pass rusher since the retirement of Demarcus Ware. With Von Miller getting double teamed, that gave quarterbacks more time to get the football to the wide outs.
The running game, offensive line, and Bradley Roby will have to answer most of the questions that are set on this team. The backs are young, but have a lot of potential. Can the offensive line protect Case Keeunm? And can Bradley Roby fill in some big shoes left by Aqib Talib in a contract year?
With the season kicking off on Sunday, now would be the perfect time to talk about season predictions. There is no doubt that this team has improved quite a bit. But will that show when it comes to wins and losses?
Denver’s schedule to start out is pretty challenging. However, it may not be as daunting as we think. Only three teams on the schedule were in the playoffs last year. (Los Angeles Rams, Pittsburgh Steelers, and Kansas City Chiefs x2)
How do we see the season shaking out? Let’s ask some of the staff here at Predominantly Orange.
