Broncos, Briefly: Thursday, Oct. 12, 2017

Posted Oct 12, 2017

A quick look at the recent buzz on the Denver Broncos.

The NFL's surprise one-loss teams look built to last (Robert Mays, The Ringer)
In the AFC, by contrast, the spot in the hierarchy directly beneath the undefeated Chiefs is there for the taking. That’s part of what makes the Broncos the surprise one-loss team most likely to continue its run deep into the season.

McKenzie has flashed electric ability. Should the Broncos use him more? (Nick Kosmider, Denver Post)
In short, the electric returner had provided fireworks. But as he evaluated his performance following the game, McKenzie landed on a seemingly harsh grade.

Broncos plan to steer clear of Giants' turmoil (Jeff Legwold, ESPN)
The Giants’ injuries at receiver, however, will require at least some attention from the Broncos, as they try to figure out how New York’s offense will adjust. Tight end Evan Engram, who played some at receiver in this past Sunday's loss to the Chargers, and running back Shane Vereen are two Giants players who could be more involved in the passing game.

Broncos insist star receivers will get their chances (Arnie Stapleton, AP)
"They're going to get their chances," quarterback Trevor Siemian insisted Wednesday as the Broncos (3-1) installed their game plan for the reeling New York Giants (0-5). "It's only a matter of time. I know it's important for those guys to win, which we've been doing, which is good. I think when you're losing a bunch of games it makes it harder on everybody. But we're winning. I'm not worried. Those guys are going to get their touches."

A “lack of identity” on offense is actually a good thing for the Broncos (Zac Stevens, BSN Denver)
“Who we are right now? I’m not sure who we are,” Broncos’ head coach Vance Joseph said when asked what the offense’s identity was during the team’s Week 6 preparation. “Right now, I think it’s a work in progress.”
