Instead of looking at the top teams and quarterbacks the Broncos will face in 2023, let's look at the worst quarterbacks the Broncos should have the pleasure of facing. Fortunately, the Broncos will have some opportunities in 2023 to potentially tee off on some below-average signal callers.
I'm not saying that these QBs will stay this way, but at this very moment, they aren't good. Some may look at Russell Wilson in a similar light, which is fine. I happen to think that there are about five quarterbacks on the Broncos' schedule that shouldn't be very hard to play well against.
Who are those five?
Who are the worst quarterbacks Denver will face in the 2023 season
5. Mac Jones
The Denver Broncos have the pleasure of facing the New England Patriots at home in week 16 of the 2023 NFL season. This is their Christmas Eve matchup, and the hope is that the Broncos can barrel down on Jones and the Pats, who endured a rough 2022 season.
Jones regressed quite a bit from his solid rookie season form, but he is a low-ceiling passer. He doesn't do anything that well but can be a competent passer. To me, his ceiling is that Derek Carr/Kirk Cousins/Jimmy Garoppolo tier, but he's not even at that level yet.
With limited mobility and an arm that scares no one, the Broncos should have a good time against Michael McCorkle Jones.
