3. Denver Broncos (6-2)
The Broncos have suffered some injuries but they’ve been able to maintain a lead in the AFC West despite that and also not playing well at times. They are tied for first place with the Raiders.
Speaking of, that is a huge game for the Broncos. They head to California to take on the Raiders on Sunday Night Football. The game couldn’t have come at a better time for either team.
Week nine will be a good gauge of where both teams are at. The Broncos will have to be road warriors in the second half of the season. Their next home game isn’t until November 27th.
December does bring the Patriots to Denver and they do finish the season out at home against the Raiders. The Broncos need to survive this next stretch of games though to stay in competition for the AFC West division crown.
