At 4-8, the Denver Broncos are going to miss the playoffs… again.
There are four games left in the season and much like last year at this time, the Broncos will have to use the month of December to see what positives can be taken into 2021. That worked out well for the team last season as Drew Lock performed quite well in December.
That gave the team plenty of hope coming into this season but none of that ever came to fruition. So what can that be chalked up to? Do we use the usual excuses of there being too many injuries or the fact that the offseason was far from typical?
Or do we expect the team to make wholesale changes going into the coming season?
Those questions could be answered, at least in part, by what we see over these final four games. The Broncos don’t have a very favorable schedule and the way they have played this year, it’s going to be tough to predict how these games will shake out.
But that’s what I’ll be attempting to do here. Each of the final four games will be predicted in depth and using ESPN’s Playoff Machine, the winners of each game of each week for the rest of the league will be predicted as well.
That will leave us with a predicted first-round draft slot for the Broncos. Where do they end up? Read on to find out.
