With the lackluster performance against the Buffalo Bills, the Denver Broncos have now guaranteed that they won’t finish with a winning season once again.
For the third straight season, the Denver Broncos are guaranteed to finish with no less than eight losses. Another loss and it will be the first time in the Pat Bowlen era that the team will finish with three consecutive losing seasons.
Is there any hope for the future of this franchise? It just amazes me how much this team has fallen flat since winning Super Bowl 50. From the start of their game against the Buffalo Bills, they seemed unmotivated and unwilling to win the game.
In fact, the Denver Broncos only had 134 total yards on the day. And they went the final 25 minutes of the game without a first down. It is straight up embarrassing. Brandon Allen had a 32.4 quarterback rating. I do not think there was one moment during that game that gave any of Broncos Country any hope, minus the Justin Simmons interception.
The big question now is will Drew Lock be activated from injured reserve before the Los Angeles Chargers game at home? Well, Vic Fangio did state after the game that he did not think much on it. So, it will be a story worth monitoring as the team prepares for their AFC West rival.
If we are being honest however, I do not think at this point switching the quarterback would be helpful. Yes, we want to see what the team can get out of Drew Lock. If it were to happen, next week would be the time. But if the head coach is still indecisive on his plan, then we may have to go another week without him on the field.
It was said at the beginning that there might be a chance that Drew Lock does not play at all this season. But it seems with every loss the Broncos suffer, the more likely he takes the field. We shall see what happens when the Chargers come to town.
