3. Keep building chemistry among the young players

The Broncos entered the 2020 season with the youngest offense, and it showed all season. Many games were won and lost due to the Broncos’ inexperience on the offense.

Despite an abbreviated offseason, the Broncos’ young nucleus on offense has shown flashes throughout the season. Consistency will be the key to elevating the entire offense, and a normal offseason will help the Broncos find the consistency they so desperately need.

The connection between Lock and his young targets has appeared slightly off all season, but on Sunday the issues rose to the surface. Jerry Jeudy experienced his worst nightmare, with several key drops on the day.

While Jeudy will likely never experience a day like that again, it is partially a product of the limited snaps the offense received due to COVID protocols in training camp. A full offseason of work between Lock and all of his young playmakers will help the drops, as well as the chemistry between the offense.

The Broncos have a promising young core on offense, and given time they could grow into a potent group. The Broncos need to show trust in their young core, and allow them to build their chemistry over the offseason leading into the 2021 season.
