Power rankings roundup, Week 12

Posted Nov 21, 2017

A roundup of the Broncos' spot in assorted publications' power rankings.

The Broncos' current average ranking among these publications is about 26th overall.

ESPN.com

Current rank: No. 27
Last week: No. 22

Following a 3-1 start, the Broncos have dropped six straight games for the first time in a single season since 1990. Offensive coordinator Mike McCoy already has lost his job, and there's no clear-cut No. 1 QB on the roster. This season couldn't get much worse for Denver.

Sports Illustrated/The MMQB

Current rank: No. 22
Last week: No. 21

USA Today

Current rank: No. 26
Last week: No. 25

You're not soft, Paxton Lynch. But we question how wise it would be start you in same week very capable OC Mike McCoy was thrown to wolves.

Yahoo! Sports, Frank Schwab

Current rank: 25
Last week: 23

Bleacher Report, Chris Simms

Current rank: No. 28
Last week: No. 24

It's been the same story for the Broncos all year. They controlled the game against the Cincinnati Bengals but screwed themselves with turnovers. You can't throw an interception when going in for a score and not expect it to cost you. You can't fumble the ball in the fourth quarter in a one-score game.

Washington Post, Mark Maske

Current rank: No. 30
Last week: No. 29

It has been a rapid deterioration of what was a Super Bowl winner two seasons ago.

NFL.com, Elliot Harrison

Current rank: No. 28
Last week: No. 22

The Broncos took a steep drop this week, mostly because they've lost six in a row. We can't hold steady on them based on talent. That was not a contender they fell to at home. Sometimes it feels as though the whole situation is a mess. The quarterback situation is in disarray, while the once-impregnable defense hasn't been able to buy a turnover or a major stop when needed.
