Denver Broncos stock report after victory over Panthers.

Although it was too close for comfort, the Denver Broncos came away with the victory early on Sunday, defeating the Carolina Panthers 32-27. The game came down to the wire at the end, and really, the Panthers were given too many opportunities to get back into the game.

Regardless, the Broncos were able to seal the deal with a De’Vante Bausby stop to force the Panthers to a turnover on downs, and the Broncos took their fourth straight win over the Panthers.

Even better, Broncos Country was able to not only enjoy the rest of their Sunday but got a full day of celebrating the win.

Although the Broncos are not looking at the playoffs, by getting their fifth win, at worst, the Denver Broncos could finish 5-11, avoiding tying their worst regular season finish of 4-12 in 2010, or the worst regular season finish for the Broncos since a 16 game regular season was implemented.

Let’s jump back to the present, and break down this week’s stock report.

Stock Up

Netane Muti, RG

In what was rookie Netane Muti’s first career start in the NFL, he impressed as the offensive line did a solid job keeping Drew Lock upright in the Denver Broncos’ win over the Panthers on Sunday.

Although Muti was held responsible for half of a sack and two pressures to Lock, he played well for his first-ever start, especially considering he was starting in the place of Graham Glasgow. If Glasgow is unavailable for Saturday’s game against the Bills as well, we will get another sample of Muti’s blocking.

In a phone interview with the Denver Post Wednesday, Muti expressed his nerves were high but faded once he started playing. If Glasgow cannot go, hopefully, we will see more of the Netane Muti we saw on Sunday.
