Denver Broncos: 5 things we have learned in first three games
The Denver Broncos sit at 3-0 for the first time since 2016 and could not have asked for a better start.
Though the team is still not getting a lot of respect on a larger scale, fans of the team have to be happy with the way the Broncos are playing, particularly for a team looking to end a long playoff drought.
The Broncos are one of just five undefeated teams remaining in the league but things are going to get much more difficult starting this Sunday when they take on the Baltimore Ravens.
But before we discuss that game much more, let’s first reflect back on the first three games of the season. Here are five things those first three weeks have taught us.
Teddy Bridgewater has been excellent
There are many fans who still want to see the Broncos go to Drew Lock at some point and maybe that will happen down the road but as of now, Teddy Bridgewater has just been what the doctor ordered for this team.
Through three games, he has completed 73 of 95 passes for a ridiculous 76.8 percent completion rate. He has thrown for 827 yards with four touchdowns and he has yet to turn the ball over. He is sitting at a QB rating of 116.4. Though every other quarterback in the division will get more headlines, Bridgewater has been as good as any of them.
Just for comparison, the best QB rating he has had in a season during his career is 99.1 and his best completion percentage is 69.1 percent. He is playing the best ball of his career.
Defenses are daring Bridgewater to beat them and he is beating them, easily.
Fans have to be absolutely thrilled with his things are going with Bridgewater under center.
