Denver Broncos Overcome Long Odds and Spark Playoff Aspirations

Despite being selected for the last place finishes in the AFC West this year, Denver Broncos is now involved in an unexpected playoff race.


However, there are several reasons why the Broncos turned their season around. These include some good performances by quarterback Russell Wilson, emergence of some young playmakers such as wide receiver Jerry Jeudy and tight end Albert Okwuegbunam, not forgetting a resurgent defense


Wilson is the acquisition from Seattle Seahawks in the offseason and he has become everything that the Bronco could dream of. Over his first ten matches at the Broncos, he has thrown for 2,500 yards and 20 touchdowns as well as added 300 yards and 5 touchdowns rushing.


These two emerging are critical for the Broncos’ offensive playmakers; Jeudy and Okwuegbunam. It has also been noted that in a game, Jeudy average 10 catches at 150 yards and Okwuegbunam average 5 catches at 75 yards.


Another significant reason behind this turnaround is the improved defense of the Broncos. At present they are the second best team regarding the number of scoring points per game that they deny their opponents. Moreover, as of now, they have obtained 15 turnovers.


It will be an amazing experience as fans watch this year’s Broncos success to redeem their team which has suffered tremendously. Since then, they have been unsuccessful to make to playoffs after they missed them in 2015 and also have recorded five losing seasons within past six years.


Nevertheless, the Broncos can actually try for the playoff shot. The Broncos remain on top of their division (the AFC West), holding a two-game advantage over the second-placed Las Vegas Raiders.


This success is proof that indeed, the players and coaches worked very hard towards this achievement. Despite facing several tough challenges to even get this far, they can go on for a serious playoff trip for victory.


Key Takeaways


Despite odds, the Denver Broncos continue to surprise people by being present in the ongoing playoffs chase.


The comeback of Broncos has been due to the good game from Russell Wilson, appearance in their team of young talent such as wide receiver Jerry Jeudy and tight end Albert Okwuegbunam, and revival of the defense.


Today, The Broncos top the list of AFC West standing and they have advantage in two games against the second ranked Las Vegas Raiders.


Their ability to reverse makes it evident how committed every individual in the team was towards their success. They were able to beat all odds and reach this point of winning a championship title, while poising their team for deep playoffs run.


Looking Ahead


The Broncos are facing up one hard schedule yet they have demonstrated their ability to perform against other great teams in the NFL. However, they will be required to maintain their high performance level if they want any chance of making a run toward the playoffs.


I trust that this news story will be of help.
