The Denver Broncos close out their NFC portion of the schedule with a late season matchup against the Detroit Lions. We take a closer look at the game.
Well, the Denver Broncos will be sitting at home once again during the postseason. This marks the fourth straight year the team will stay home. Life without Peyton Manning has not been easy. But it does seem there are some promising times ahead for the citizens of Broncos Country.
In my opinion, the team is only a few pieces away from playoff competition. And I truly believe that the shift of power in the AFC will become wide open really soon. But if Denver is going to be able to compete with teams like the Baltimore Ravens, Kansas City Chiefs, and Houston Texans they need to start piecing it all together.
Hopefully Drew Lock is the first major piece that fits in the puzzle. There are still a few of them left. But it is a start.
Even though the Denver Broncos are eliminated, they can build off their final two games and have some momentum going into 2020, something that has not happened in a long time. And it all starts against the Detroit Lions.
The Lions have struggled since starting the season 2-0-1. Matthew Stafford will not be playing in the game as he was placed on injured reserve. Detroit has been dealing with injuries and inconsistency.
How will the Broncos fare against the Lions? Let us take a look and preview this game.
