The Denver Broncos (3-5), coming off of their bye week, will battle the Tennessee Titans (5-3) in Week 10.
If the Broncos are going to have any chance of turning their season around, this is really a game they need to find a way to win on the road.
The Broncos will be looking for back-to-back wins for the first time since Weeks 2 and 3 of this season. After losing four games in a row following that, the team was able to get by the Jacksonville Jaguars in London.
Coming out of the bye, they will be facing the team that currently leads the AFC South. However, it is a winnable depending on how the team handles the following reality checks that exist in this matchup.
Broncos can’t lose to Malik Willis
Ryan Tannehill is officially listed as questionable for this game meaning that rookie Malik Willis could start for the third time in a row. He has not looked good in those starts.
Though the Titans played well enough to beat the Kansas City Chiefs last week, their inability to move the ball on offense, through the air, did them in.
In two starts, Willis has completed a total of 11 passes. He has completed less than 50 percent of his throws and has thrown for just 135 yards. If the Titans are forced to play him again, the Broncos’ defense has been good enough to hold them to a very minimal amount of points.
The offense would just need to be decent in order to get this win so if Willis is the guy, Denver has to win the game.
