The Denver Broncos are feeling good on a victory Monday, and rightfully so. But there are still some concerns coming out of this win.
Everyone in Broncos Country should be feeling good on this Victory Monday, but as is typically the case in the NFL these days, victories can come at a significant cost. For the Denver Broncos, the cost of beating the New York Giants is still mostly undetermined, but there are some concerns coming out of this game and things the team will need to address moving forward.
Let’s not get it twisted, though, this was a big-time win for the Denver Broncos and one of the most impressive performances from the team we’ve seen in recent years.
That seems very sad to even type, but it’s true.
The Broncos did mostly well in all facets of this game, and quarterback Teddy Bridgewater played at a very high level in his first game as the team’s starter.
With that being said, what are the top areas of concern coming out of the victory?
Denver Broncos: Top 3 areas of concern after Giants win
1. Jerry Jeudy’s ankle injury
During the game against the New York Giants, Jerry Jeudy had his ankle rolled up on pretty badly in what appeared to be a devastating long-term loss for the Denver Broncos.
It was reported during the game that Jeudy thankfully avoided a season-ending injury or break in his ankle.
Jeudy was carted off the field and looked like he was in quite a bit of pain, understandably so, after getting rolled up on.
What makes this injury worse is the fact that it would have been avoided altogether if KJ Hamler had caught a pass earlier in the drive from Teddy Bridgewater for a touchdown. Injuries can happen at any time, of course, but the Hamler dropped touchdown was part of the sequence that ultimately led to this play going down.
Considering Jeudy’s best asset is his quickness and ability to change directions on a dime, this is an injury that can’t be taken lightly.
The Broncos have plenty of talent at receiver to supplement this kind of loss, but not having Jerry Jeudy for any significant stretch of time would be a devastating blow. He looked like he had some really strong chemistry brewing with Teddy Bridgewater.
