The Denver Nuggets extended their winning streak to 5 Sunday night at the Pepsi Center after defeating the Phoenix Suns 116-104. The Nuggets beat the Boston Celtics 96-92 on Friday night at Pepsi Center and the Houston Rockets last Wednesday at Pepsi Center.

The Denver Nuggets have another game at home at the time of this writing hosting the Washington Wizards. The Nuggets are on the road this weekend in Sacramento to face the Kings before hosting the top team in the West, the L.A. Lakers at Pepsi Center next Tuesday. The Nuggets are 12-3 at the time of this writing and are a game and half behind the Lakers for the top spot in the Western Conference.

The Colorado Avalanche are reeling after two straight losses to the Minnesota Wild in Minnesota, and an embarrassing loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs at Pepsi Center Saturday night where the Maple Leafs jumped out to a 4-1 lead in the first period. Colorado would add two more in the second and third periods but their late rally wasn’t enough to climb out of their early deficit losing 5-3.

The Colorado Avalanche host the Edmonton Oilers this Wednesday at Pepsi Center at 8 p.m. before heading to Chicago to face the Blackhawks who will be back in Denver Saturday night to face the Avs in back to back games. The Avalanche defeated the Oilers 6-2, two weeks ago in Edmonton but have yet to play Chicago this year.

The Denver Broncos were outplayed and out hustled on Sunday morning in Buffalo. The Bills made easy work of the Broncos over four quarters of play holding Denver to a single field goal in the third quarter. Though Denver’s defense held the Bills to just two field goals at the half, Buffalo was able to score touchdowns in the third quarter and the fourth quarter.

Over the past couple of weeks the Denver Broncos have faced fastpaced teams with a no huddle offense which has caused a lot of assignment confusion up front resulting in multiple sacks on Brandon Allen. Denver’s offense is a whole different problem and much of Bronco’s country is calling on the play of first round pick, quarterback Drew Lock. When asked about offensive struggles Coach Fangio had this to say, “Actually early on, it was kind of okay considering the conditions and the good defense we were going against, but at some point there, we just stopped moving it totally and they kind of smothered us. It was a problem obviously, and one that we need to get rectified somehow.”

When asked if Coach Fangio was considering moving to Drew Lock in next weeks game against the Chargers, Fangio had this to add, “I haven’t even thought about it yet.” Whether he has or hasn’t thought about moving to Lock next week, the idea has since crossed his mind especially with regard to how Denver’s offense played on Sunday in Buffalo.

Whatever coach Fangio decides this week, it really can’t hurt their ability to lose games.
