After winning their game on Sunday the Denver Broncos had just three days to prepare for the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Field in Indy. Despite Denver’s season being over after their final three games the Broncos went to Indy with a new sense of purpose.

Last week the Broncos were facing a potential losing streak of 9 games but managed to defeat the New Your Jets without much resistance from the Jets. This week Denver traveled to Indianapolis to face a struggling Colts team who has also been eliminated from post-season contentions. The Colts jumped out to an immediate 10-point lead after quarterback Trevor Siemian threw his first and only interception into double coverage which led to a Colts’ field goal. Siemian was sacked on the ensuing Denver drive on 3rd and 7, resulting in a dislocated shoulder after taking the Broncos down to the Colts 7-yard line. To add insult to injury, the Broncos racked up a 15 yard penalty placing the ball at the 22, which kicker Brandon McManus missed.

Queue the back up! Brock Osweiller entered the game at the start of the second quarter which is about the time Bronco fans witnessed a significant change in the production of the offense. When all was said and done, Osweiller led the Broncos to a 25-13 victory, and although Osweiller was a key factor in Denver’s win, most of the credit goes to Broncos’ running back C.J. Anderson. Anderson had 158 yards on 30 carries opening up play-action-pass allowing Osweiller to keep the Colts’ defense honest.

Denver enjoyed their second win in a row after losing 8 straight, and their chances at the post-season. Despite Denver’s significant fall, the entire team played well on Thursday night and despite all the speculation as to the direction the Broncos are headed in the off-season, the team that won on Thursday night is without a doubt capable of winning the 2018 season.

In other news the Denver Nuggets lost a close one to the Boston Celtics on Wednesday night in Boston 118-124, Denver heads to Oklahoma Monday to face the Thunder.
