Week 14: Broncos vs. Chiefs (SNF)

This will be a paramount matchup for the Broncos. Sunday Night Football, in Denver, against the Chiefs, Russell Wilson, Patrick Mahomes. Here we go. To the relief of many in Broncos country, I have the Broncos beating the Chiefs to snap the abysmal losing streak that has plagued this Broncos team for some time.

The Cheifs are a great football team, I don’t really buy that they will take any sort of step back this season. They have the best QB in the world and a fantastic head coach, but the Broncos pull out the win.

Hackett and Wilson rejoice! Broncos move to 10-3 on the season.

Week 15: Broncos vs. Cardinals

The Cardinals have not been able to close out seasons over the last few years, and they now travel into the hands of the Broncos coming off a massive win against the Chiefs.

I think the Broncos are able to rattle Kyler Murray enough to force some turnovers. Broncos move past the birds with an 11-3 record.

Week 16: Broncos at Rams (Christmas Day)

The Broncos travel to LA to face the Superbowl champion Rams. This will be a tough game to win. I think the Rams are one of the top three teams in the NFC. Matt Stafford and Aaron Donald lead the charge in a win against the Broncos and hand Denver an 11-4 record.

Week 17: Broncos at Chiefs

The Chiefs get one back against the Broncos. Tough division. The Broncos leave KC with an 11-5 record.

Week 18: Broncos vs. Chargers

To close out the season, the Denver Broncos battle it out in their last division game of the season. I am going to go out on a whim here and predict a shootout that leads to overtime. How fitting. The Broncos win and end up with a 12-5 record on the season.

Now, a 12-5 record is what I have predicted here, and while I truly see the Broncos in that 11 to 12 win window, I also think it’s wise to have measured expectations.

I think the division games will be the toughest games for the Broncos and they will be tested. These games could truly go either way and the margins to win in a loaded AFC are thin. I also think a brand new coaching staff and quarterback will take some time to truly get to the point we all want it to.

However, I believe in Russell Wilson and I think he will have a great year. I also believe this Denver Broncos defense is the real deal. We have had quite an off-season in Broncos country and now it’s time to see the final product on the field. Fun times ahead.
