After two weeks of NFL action, the Denver Broncos sit tied with the Kansas City Chiefs at 2-0. While the games haven’t been pretty at all times, the Broncos have shown heart and grit and mustered out two fourth quarter comebacks to get them to where they are sitting today. Defensive miscues, poor ball management, and untimely turnovers have plagued the Broncos early in the 2018 campaign, however, they have found a way to win, no matter what.
The opponents that the Broncos faced in weeks 1 and 2 are both sitting at 0-2. Denver could very easily be sitting at 0-2. After a 3 interception effort by QB Case Keenum against the Seahawks and then the lethargic start against the Raiders, Denver is fortunate to be 2-0.
The next two weeks will show us exactly where the Broncos are, offensively and defensively. This week, Denver will have its first road test against a very good defense in the Baltimore Ravens. The Broncos are 1-5 alltime against the Ravens in Baltimore which shows that it is a very difficult place to play. The Ravens fans are loud and the team feeds off of the energy unlike anywhere else I have personally been. Getting off to a fast start against the Ravens will be an important factor to winning this game. If the Broncos get off to a slow start against the Ravens like they did against the Raiders, I don’t see the Ravens defense allowing the Broncos to get back into the ballgame. The other huge factor in this game will be containing the two tight end sets that the Ravens are going to show Denver. Denver hasn’t been able to stop teams running 1 TE formations, so stopping 2 of them could be a tough task. The Broncos will need to take advantage of the Ravens porous O-Line and make Joe Flacco miserable.
Following this very difficult road game with the Ravens, the Broncos will return home for a primetime game against the super potent Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs (2-0) are the hottest offense in football right now. Pat Mahomes is playing out of his mind, setting NFL records all while taking names and kicking butt. The defense will have to fix the sloppiness that plagued them throughout the entire first half of the Raiders game last week. If Mahomes has time, he will put a lot of points on the board.
These next two weeks are going to be a lot of fun. If Denver escapes both games with victories, then Denver will be talked about as the favorite to win the AFC West.
