The City of Denver and its fans are now in full panic mode as the Denver Broncos drop their 4th straight game in Philadelphia Sunday afternoon. The Denver Broncos made a change at quarterback last week naming Brock Osweiler as the starting Quarterback for Sunday’s game. Trevor Siemian who started the season behind center for the Broncos has had some difficulties since Denver’s bye, prompting Broncos brass to make the change. Sunday proved that the problem in Denver doesn’t stop at just quarterback.
The Denver Broncos were outplayed, out-coached and completely out-hustled on every facet of the game. The Carson Wentz led Eagles made Denver’s top defense look like a pop warner team scoring at will and putting up a ridiculous 51 points to Denver meager 23. Although Osweiler isn’t Denver’s longterm solution at Quarterback he did a better job at taking care of the ball than is predecessor, and it’s clear that it doesn’t really matter who’s under center, no one can be successful without the protection that Denver’s offensive line is clearly unable to provide.
Denver returns home this week to host the New England Patriots who have faced their own struggles this season also. The Broncos were given one of, if not the most difficult schedule this season and with 4 straight losses it’s no longer the players who are on the hot seat, coach Vance Joseph is feeling the heat from both the fans and the front office. The Broncos will face the Patriots on Sunday night in the Mile High yet again in front of a national audience, in hopes of once again turning the season around. The division leading Kansas City Chiefs lost to the Dallas Cowboys Sunday afternoon in Dallas, the L.A. Charges enjoyed a bye, while the Oakland Raiders squeezed out a close one in Miami Sunday evening. Despite Denver’s 4 straight losses they still have an opportunity (although unlikely) at a Wild Card.
In other sports the Denver Nuggets started off the month of November with 2 wins and a loss, winning over the Toronto Rapters, on Wednesday last week, the Miami Heat on Friday and losing to the Golden State Warriors Saturday night. Denver is set to host the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Orlando Magic this week before heading to Portland to face the Trailblazers Monday night.
