23. Denver Broncos

When looking at how difficult wins have been since their 2-0 start, the Denver Broncos are going to look back at this tough loss to the Houston Texans wondering what could have been since they were in great position to win at the end of the game before the missed field goal. The Broncos made a bold move last week when they decided to move on from Demaryius Thomas after trading the wideout to the Texans, but when seeing how much the offense struggled for the most part, this may be a decision the team questions over the next couple of days.

Bringing in Case Keenum was supposed to solve some of the issues Denver has been dealing with on offense over the last couple of years, but that has been far from the case so far in 2018. While he didn’t record any turnovers during the loss to the Texans, it was frustrating to see Keenum only toss one touchdown pass since there were plenty of opportunities to put up more points.

Sitting at 3-6, Denver has a long way to go when it comes to getting back into any sort of discussion to be viewed as a team to beat in the AFC, especially if Keenum continues to struggle to live up to the expectations set by the team when they brought him on board. With six losses over their last seven games, the Broncos appear to be heading towards another year of missing out on the playoffs if the team continues to play at this level.
