After the Denver Broncos got destroyed by the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday, it’s fair to ask whether or not they’ll win another game this season.
It appeared, on paper, the Denver Broncos would be able to host the Las Vegas Raiders and send them and interim head coach Rich Bisaccia home with a loss. Unfortunately, it was just the opposite. It was a brutal disaster of a game.
Teddy Bridgewater was sacked five times and threw three interceptions in the loss. Bridgewater did throw three touchdown passes but it just was not enough to overcome bad offensive line play, as well as the Raiders’ three offensive touchdowns.
There is no fun way to say this: the Denver Broncos are just a bad football team. They have talented players, but they’ve won against easier teams. It just appears that they are not built to match up properly against tougher teams—heck, they couldn’t even beat a team that has so many distractions.
Will the Broncos win another game in the 2021 season?
The Denver Broncos are bottom-of-the-division bad. Despite them losing only by ten points when the clock hit quadruple zeroes, it felt like the team was being destroyed 50-0. Missed tackles, terrible offensive line play, awful field position, inaccurate throws from Bridgewater.
They simply were outmatched against a Raiders team that beat the Baltimore Ravens by six points, a Pittsburgh Steelers team by nine points, and barely defeating the one-win Miami Dolphins (31-28 victory in overtime).
As Von Miller said in the locker room following Sunday’s loss, everybody needs to look at themselves in the mirror. Everybody needs to be better. They need to be consistently better. Not just for next week’s Thursday Night game against the Cleveland Browns, but for the remaining weeks of the season. Otherwise, people are going to find themselves out of a job.
Looking at the schedule, I’m terrified.
With the way this Denver Broncos team has played, it’s hard for me to see them winning many more games. That’s not to say that they should give up. They shouldn’t. They won’t. No matter how many times somebody was to say they should tank the season for a better draft pick because they’re not getting anywhere, they’re never going to intentionally do that.
I just don’t know that this team can get out of this slump. Maybe they’ll win against the Detroit Lions in Week 14. Other than that, I’m unfortunately in the agreement that there’s little hope in this team.
The Denver Broncos have had a lot of talent on the roster over the last few years but just haven’t been able to win. Here are ways they can turn it around.
Until they figure the “simple” mistakes out and correct them on a consistent basis, the Denver Broncos are not going anywhere.
