The Denver Broncos are 5-5 coming out of the bye week and will take on the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 12 action. We make our bold predictions.

The Denver Broncos are coming off of a bye week in Week 11 and a loss before that, but the recent contracts given out to wide receivers Tim Patrick and Courtland Sutton have very good vibes surrounding the team right now.

Heading into Week 12, it’s crucial that the Denver Broncos figure out how to play consistent football offensively because they still control their own destiny when it comes to the AFC West. With five divisional games remaining of the seven left on the schedule, starting this week against the Chargers, the Broncos still have more than just a shot.

What can we expect in this week’s home game against Justin Herbert and company? After a bad loss at home to the Eagles in Week 10, it’s time to get back on the saddle.

Big day for Sutton, Patrick leads Denver Broncos Week 12 predictions vs. Chargers

1. Courtland Sutton & Tim Patrick each go for TDs

After signing multi-year deals in a matter of days between each other, the Denver Broncos’ now big-money duo of Courtland Sutton and Tim Patrick will each score a touchdown against the Chargers.

Los Angeles could be without stud rookie Asante Samuel Jr. in this game, and the Denver Broncos have to be thinking about emphasizing these two “core” players going forward.

Sutton, in particular, has seen a hilariously low number of targets in recent weeks.

The Broncos need to force-feed these two, if nothing else.

In four career games against the Chargers, Sutton has averaged nearly 23 yards per reception with three touchdowns.

Tim Patrick has yet to score on them. Let’s see that change this week.
