The Denver Broncos may have lost three straight, but they are still 3-3 with a shot at the playoffs. Who needs to step up to beat the Browns?
Four weeks ago, many Denver Broncos fans were excited about the team’s 3-0 start. Regardless of the fact that the Broncos beat some of the NFL’s bottom feeders in that three-game winning streak, the team was winning, and winning galvanizes just about everyone.
But they were, all of them, deceived.
The 3-0 start to the 2021 season evaporated as quickly as it appeared. The Denver Broncos have now lost three straight games, and not only that, but they have lost three straight games to critical AFC opponents and others vying for playoff positioning.
Thankfully, there are seven seeds in each conference.
Denver Broncos: 4 players that must step up to beat the Browns
Despite the fact that everything is getting out of control in Broncos Country as far as people making plans for the future rather than focusing on the remaining 11 games (myself included), there is a game yet to be played on Thursday night against the Cleveland Browns.
If the Broncos can find a way to win this game, they are going to be right back in the mix, at least for another 10 days.
The Browns don’t have their starting quarterback or running backs for this game. They may not have their top two receivers or their starting offensive tackles. They have underachieved as a pass defense despite heavy investment (I guess we can relate to that one) in that area of the team.
Given all the Browns are missing from their lineup, who needs to step up in this game for the Denver Broncos?
It’s not overly complicated. Here are the four who need to step up the most to get this crucial fourth win of the season.
