Five reasons to believe better days are coming soon for the Denver Broncos.

With two close losses, a ton of injuries, and the obstacles they have faced with the NFL’s COVID protocols, it’s been a tougher 1-3 start than usual for the Denver Broncos.

It’s never easy when the Broncos are losing games in general, but it’s definitely worse when so many key players are unable to contribute, and fans are left wondering what could have been.

Although there are many reasons for the Broncos to be disgruntled over the fact that their game with the New England Patriots was pushed back a week, there are also plenty of reasons for them to be thankful. Not the least of which is the fact that the team is slowly but surely getting healthy.

In the NFL, it almost feels like the healthiest teams at the end of the year are the ones that prevail and do well in the postseason, and the Broncos have taken some kill shots when it comes to injuries of the season-ending variety.

Although Von Miller has set a target date of December 13 to potentially return to the field, he will miss the majority of the 2020 season and Courtland Sutton will have missed all but a handful of snaps with a shoulder injury and torn ACL and MCL.

Even with those two substantial injuries affecting the Broncos greatly, there are other key players who were injured early on that will soon return to the field and have a major impact on the way the rest of the season looks for Denver.

In addition to getting healthier, there are a number of reasons to believe that better days are not far off for the Denver Broncos. Let’s take a look through a few of them.
