Denver Broncos 2022 bold predictions

Broncos win at least 12 games

The Denver Broncos are going to win a ton of games in 2022.

I think this for a few reasons.

Firstly, the offense is going to be a top seven unit.  Russell Wilson is going to elevate this group to new heights.  In Wilson’s ten years in Seattle, the Seahawks’ offense ranked in the top ten in points per game a staggering seven times.

Seventy percent of the time, Wilson runs a top ten unit.

Secondly, the Denver Broncos had the third-ranked scoring defense last year.

Even if this unit regresses to, let’s say, the 10th ranked unit, the Broncos would have both a top ten offense and defense.

In 2012-2015, Seattle ranked in the top 10 in both scoring and scoring defense, so it’s happened with Wilson many times before.

Thirdly, the Denver Broncos have a very manageable schedule in 2022.

Their strength of schedule is 15th, which is right in the middle of the league.  They have an easier schedule than the Bills, Steelers, Chargers, Raiders, Chiefs, and Bengals.

Combine all three of these things, and it’s easy to see why Denver is going to win at least 12 games.

They may even win more.
