Denver Broncos: Good, Bad, and WTF against the Washington Redskins
The Denver Broncos have not had a very good 2017. That continued on Sunday against the Washington Redskins. The Broncos struggled, again to put points on the board. So, where do the Broncos go from here for next week? That we will see. Nonetheless, here is the Good, the Bad, and WTF from Sunday.
- Running Game
The running game of the Denver Broncos has reappeared over the last three weeks. On Sunday, the Broncos ground game churned out 159 yards on the ground. CJ Anderson led the way again with 88 yards. Thus, he will need just 54 yards against the Kansas City Chiefs next week to rush for 1,000 yards. If he does so, he will be the first Bronco since Knowshon Moreno to break the mark.
- Brock Osweiler
Osweiler started again for the Denver Broncos in week 16. He did so because Trevor Siemian is on injured reserve and Paxton Lynch is still recovering from an ankle injury. Osweiler just was not up to the task. It has been a constant from Broncos QBs all season.
- The Defense
The defense of the Denver Broncos was on the field excessively again today. Over the eight-game losing streak, this was a common theme. That theme returned today. The Redskins ran 66 plays. While the defense leads this team, it cannot do it all. Eventually the wear down.
- Isaiah McKenzie
I am honestly surprised that this kid was even out there. Although, he had to be given the injury situation. However, going forward the Denver Broncos need to consider other options. He cost the team another shot at points with a mistake. This has been a recurring issue with him. Costing the team points does not get you back on the field anytime soon.
The Denver Broncos have one more game in this awful season. We could see many new faces playing. In addition, we will probably see Paxton Lynch. Yep, another QB change. That is how this season has gone.
