The Denver Broncos have proven they can compete against the best of the best, but how can they finally start closing and winning games?
The Denver Broncos’ 2-0 start to the 2018 season now seems like a very distant memory and four straight losses heading into a Thursday Night Football matchup against the Arizona Cardinals have fans already looking at a top five draft pick in 2019.
In the NFL, you are what your record says you are and the Broncos right now have the seventh-worst record in the league, but it’s still really early in the season. Things still have the chance to get a lot better, but unfortunately, it can also get worse.
So what are the Broncos supposed to do? They’re not going to roll over at this point in the season. Vance Joseph and his staff are coaching not only for their jobs in Denver but for future jobs in the NFL if things don’t work out with the Broncos.
The Broncos’ first loss of the season came against the Baltimore Ravens on the road and under Vance Joseph, they have been one of the worst teams in the NFL playing on the road.
As a matter of fact, the only game the Broncos have won on the road with Joseph as the head coach was a Thursday night game against the Indianapolis Colts in 2017. The Colts were obviously just as bad as the Broncos were last year, and the Cardinals are at least as bad as the Broncos right now, if not worse.
What has to change starting Thursday night for the Broncos to really turn around the season as a whole? Here are five areas that, if addressed, could save the Broncos’ season and save some jobs in the process.
