Minnesota beat a good team on Sunday
Expect some to discredit the Vikings during the next few days for their exciting comeback win on Sunday thanks to the Broncos only having three wins this season.
Sure, Denver has only come out on top in three of their 10 matchups this year. However, four of their losses this season have come by four points or less. If a few plays go differently this year, the Broncos could have been walking off the field this week with a 7-3 record.
Denver also has one of the top defenses in the NFL this year. Heading into Sunday’s game against Minnesota, the Broncos had given up the sixth-fewest points and fourth-fewest yards of any team in the league this season.
On the offensive side of the ball, Denver has some talented players that can give their opponents a tough time. Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay and receiver Courtland Sutton are two of their top contributors and they played a big factor in the team jumping out to a 20-0 lead over the Vikings on Sunday.
Denver’s 0-4 start to the season is something that will prevent them from making the playoffs, but since Week 5, they’re 3-3. The Broncos are heading in the right direction now, it just took a little too long for them to figure out how to get there.
