2019 Power Rankings Roundup: Week 15

The Broncos have lost the "hidden yards" battle in plenty of games, and that lost yardage has been costly in close losses.

A real peach from Drew Lock (22-of-27, 309 yards, 3 TDs, 1 INT, 136.0 rating) and some key grabs from Noah Fant (4 receptions, 113 yards, TD) aided Denver in their best win of the season.

Lock played with easygoing confidence, delivering the type of QB competence the Broncos haven't seen much of in recent years. Could the second-round pick be the team's answer behind center? The final three weeks will be important in the audition process.

Drew Lock completed 81% of his 27 throws in Sunday's win. John Elway only did that once in his career when attempting at least 20 passes.

"In the last seven weeks," Gagnon said, "the Broncos have hung with or beat the Colts, Browns, Vikings, Chargers and Texans. Those teams all have playoff-caliber talent. They've done that despite selling off Emmanuel Sanders at the trade deadline, despite instability at quarterback and despite injuries to Bradley Chubb and Von Miller. Vic Fangio deserves a lot of credit. Plenty of reason to be optimistic about 2020 in Denver."

Drew Lock might never again play as well as he did on Sunday. But at this moment, the Broncos should be excited. Almost everything about Lock the past two games has been good. At very least, there shouldn't be any quarterback questions this upcoming offseason.

Did John Elway finally find his quarterback in Drew Lock? He was outstanding in the upset of the Texans. He plays with a swagger.

It's early, but it certainly appears there's a chance that Drew Lock is the real deal. Maybe John Elway has finally found a solution to the Broncos' QB woes.

Drew Lock has given the offense a much-needed spark, which makes one wonder how the season might have played out had he been healthy earlier. The rookie has three more games to prove he, not a first-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, should be the franchise QB.
