With the National Football League season less than a week away, it’s time for you the fan to chime in. This article or column — however you view it, will give you the opportunity to vote on a topic. So here’s your question: How many games will the Denver Broncos win this season?
I’ll give you my two cents on the topic. This is arguably one of the deepest teams I’ve seen in my twenty years of existence following the Broncos. The additions of DeMarcus Ware, Aqib Talib, and T.J. Ward will bolster a defense that was nowhere to be found during Super Bowl 48 — mainly due to the fact Denver was missing five key starters on the defensive side of the ball (Harris, Miller, Vickerson, Wolfe, & Moore).
Not to mention, Denver will be getting Von Miller and Chris Harris Jr. back after both players tore their ACL during the 2013-14′ season. Miller tore his week 16 against the Houston Texans while Harris did so in the Divisional Round playoffs against the San Diego Chargers.
The offense is pretty much the same, minus Eric Decker as John Elway and company picked up a key replacement in Emmanuel Sanders. Denver will also get back their best offensive lineman, left tackle Ryan Clady, who was out for most of the season after suffering a season-ending Lisfranc injury. Denver’s offense and defense is as scary as it has been in quite some time, so I’ll be one of the ones voting for 13+ victories.
The Denver Broncos open up their 2014-15′ schedule as they take on the Indianapolis Colts at home September 7th on Sunday Night Football (NBC). Kickoff is scheduled for 8:30 PM ET, 6:30 MST. Go Broncos!
