Denver Broncos: Predominantly Orange’s week six primer
Los Angeles Rams @ Denver Broncos
I hate to have to do this, but if you saw the Denver Broncos take on the New York Jets on Sunday, you understand. 2018 is beginning to feel a lot like 2017, and the Denver Broncos are about to get embarrassed at home against arguably the best team in the league. Maybe that will result in this so-called “change” that Vance Joseph was preaching earlier this week.
The one shining bright spot is that the Rams will be without Aqib Talib, but they still possess the rest of their talented defense.
Offensively, Jared Goff has a number of weapons that will easily torch the Denver Broncos terrible secondary. With Bradley Roby playing terrible this season, only Chris Harris Jr should be a considered a concern for the Rams. Whoever Harris has been covering this season has been bad news for that player. Against the Chiefs, he shut down Travis Kelce for the first half (until they moved Brandon Marshall on him), and against the Jets, he shut down the Jet’s leading receiver Quincy Enunwa the entire day.
To be honest, I’ll just be happy if the Denver Broncos could keep this close, but this feels a lot like last season. In the midst of last year’s eight-game losing streak, Denver’s second game at home in that streak was against the Patriots. They got blown out 41-16.
I hope it’s not like that, but it sure as heck could be.
Line: Rams +7
