Scenario 1: Tank
Just because this is the worst (and hopefully least likely) scenario, let’s get it right out of the way.
The worst case scenario from this point out for the Broncos would be a full on tank, and I don’t mean on purpose. This would mean the Broncos going out and just flat out getting beat in every game the rest of the season, going 0-5 the rest of the way and looking like total garbage.
This team has lost five (or more) games in a row before, but this would be a particular disappointment given the Broncos are expected to go up against Jeff Driskel and Nick Mullens over the next two weeks.
Even the most pessimistic Broncos supporter would agree this seems like an unlikely scenario. At worst, it feels like the Broncos will win seven games but going 0-for-5 in their final five games would be a colossal disappointment.
That would likely end Vance Joseph’s time as head coach of the team, and Denver would be back to the drawing board this offseason trying to figure out what they are going to do next and how they are going to build from the foundation that has been set by the 2018 rookie class.
