Since the Broncos Super Bowl win in 2015 season the team has failed to make the playoffs and haven’t found their quarterback. They traded for former Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco. The veteran in 2018 completed 61.2% of his throws the lowest in five seasons. Team record in his past four seasons he started was 24-27. He has completed in 15 playoff games in his 11 full seasons. Joe Flacco is an immobile quarterback who didn’t get good run support in his final years with the Ravens. For Flacco to be successful he needs run support for play action to work. It made sense for Denver to sign him because the Broncos have boosted their running attack as they averaged 4.9 yards per carry on the ground. If it wasn’t for that 70 yard fluke touchdown pass in the final 31 seconds against the Broncos in a January 2013 Divisional playoff game, he would not have earned a Super Bowl appearance. That was the play when two Broncos defenders ran into each other and fell, and the ball went into the hands of Jacoby Jones for the game tying touchdown which the Ravens eventually won in overtime. Denver sputtered on third down in 2018 sitting 28th in the league.

Denver has a strong three headed monster in the backfield in Phillip Lindsey, Royce Freeman and Devontae Booker. Theo Riddick was signed as insurance who can catch passes out of the backfield but was injured in Week 2 of the preseason and out for 5-6 weeks. Lindsey is coming off a wrist injury a season ago and hasn’t seen time in the preseason. Offensive line blocked well and allowed the tenth fewest sacks last season.

Their number one wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders returned off a season ending torn Achilles in early December. Week 1 of the regular season is nine months since that injury. Sanders could miss the start of the regular season. Even when he returns you must worry about his speed and cuts as well as chemistry with Joe Flacco in full speed. Courtland Sutton put up good numbers as the starter opposite Sanders. DeMaryius Thomas was traded in late October to the Houston Texans. That leaves a lot of question marks at wide receiver. They did take a wide receiver late in the draft in Juwanne Winfree out of Colorado. Team has lots of second and third year players in the mix competing for playing time.

Joe Flacco likes to throw to big tight ends in his career with the Ravens. Jeff Heuerman caught 38 passes for 281 yards and two touchdowns. Their first round pick was Noah Fant a tight end from Iowa.

Denver is talented on defense. They did hold opponents to 22 points per game but gave up a lot of yardage in 365 yards with 245 passing. Team was average defending third down and in the red zone. Von Miller had double digit sacks in five straight seasons with 14 ½ sacks last year.

Broncos will play every team from the NFC North and AFC South. They go on the road at Minnesota and Green Bay. They must play the best teams from the AFC South on the road in Houston and Indianapolis. Denver has one set of back to back road games and in December play three straight on the road. Denver plays five of their final seven games on the road. As the third place team in the AFC West the team plays third place Cleveland at home from the AFC North and travel to AFC East third place team Buffalo Bills in late November which may not be an easy task. Also, home and road games to the Chiefs and Chargers in the division.
