Denver Broncos: Week 12 power rankings roundup
Denver Broncos Week 12 Power Rankings roundup
ESPN (This Week: 21st; Last Week: 23rd): Jeff Legwold of ESPN acknowledges that while the Broncos won’t get a merit badge, this team has worked extremely hard to overcome the issues that have come up, such as the injury bug and COVID-19 bug.
Sports Illustrated (26th this week): The Dolphins are a ‘border-line top-10’ team. The Broncos beat the Dolphins last week. The difference between last week is that the Dolphins are the Dolphins, and the Saints are the Saints. While Vic Fangio’s defense confused Tua Tagovailoa, will that be the case with Taysom Hill?
CBS Sports (This Week: 19th; Last Week: 22nd): There are similarities between Tagovailoa and Hill, who the Broncos will face back-to-back. Can they figure out a way to stop the Saints’ offense that will be without Drew Brees but with Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara?
NFL.com (This Week: 22nd; Last Week: 25th): As Dan Hanzus of NFL.com said in his week 12 power rankings section on the Broncos, the Broncos’ plan was to rattle Tagovailoa to force the Dolphins to make a change. Now, are they up to the task of rattling other young quarterbacks? Maybe not to the point where those quarterbacks get benched, but enough to get a win, maybe.
