Predicting remaining games for Broncos following bye week
Week 17 at Kansas City Chiefs
The old 11:00 a.m. kickoff at Arrowhead Stadium, a game that rarely goes well for the Broncos and that will be the case again here.
The Chiefs could be wrapping up a division title in this one, if they haven’t already, and they will put the pedal to the metal against the Broncos.
The Broncos won’t roll over. They will show some heart in this game and put up a fight as they have done several times during the lengthy losing streak to Kansas City. But in the end, the combination of Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce and Andy Reid just ends up being too much.
Pick: Chiefs 31, Broncos 23
Week 18 vs. Los Angeles Chargers
The Chargers could still be fighting for a playoff spot in this game but the Broncos are going to throw the kitchen sink at them in this one.
The Broncos always play the Chargers tough and that was the case in their earlier meeting this season. Whether this will be enough to save Nathaniel Hackett’s job will be questionable, as his offense will struggle and look putrid until the team hits the finish line, but they go out with a great showing here.
Pick: Broncos 24, Chargers 19
Final Record: 7-10
