For the third straight season, the Denver Broncos will finish the season under .500. They also won’t play any January football for the fourth straight year.
There was not a lot of hope this season for the Denver Broncos. Broncos Country fans knew that this season was going to be tough with all the first year players and coaches. Through the first three quarters of the season, it was a roller coaster ride of ups and downs.
Sadly, the last downward track results in a season where the Broncos will be playing their final game of the season in December. It was a long shot to get back into the postseason, but now it is official.
The Denver Broncos still have been unable to figure out the Kansas City Chiefs. They have not been able to figure them out for nine games now. But the Broncos have a lot of promise going into the 2020 offseason.
If there is one thing that the Denver Broncos need to work on, it is covering a tight end. Travis Kelce was able to fire on all cylinders the entire game. Denver was torched for 142 yards on 11 receptions from the Chiefs tight end. At one point in the game, he had more yards than the whole Broncos team combined.
Denver was outscored by the Chiefs 53-9 this season. The first step for the Broncos if they are going to get back into the postseason is figuring out how to stop their offense and get some points on the board.
Hopefully that will come with time. But let us just hope that Broncos Country can enjoy these last two games of the season. The good part is that there is no more traveling as Denver will be home for their final two games of the season.
But still, three straight losing seasons for the first time since the early 1970s is going to be really tough to swallow for the fans of Broncos Country. Greener pastures are ahead. Just need to piece together a few more parts.
