Was this my favorite game of the week? It might have been. As many of you know, my husband is a Cowboys fan, and he has gotten almost unbearable as we inch closer to the Cowboys-Chiefs match-up, especially since the Cowboys are actually good this year. So, come Sunday, I expected a decisive Cowboys victory. Boy was that a humbling experience for my husband. (I love him, I promise.)
The Broncos’ defense played out of its mind and the offense for the Broncos was humming behind a solid running game and smart decision making from Teddy Bridgewater.
I mean, honestly, how does he not get tackled? Regardless, the Broncos placed a butt-whooping on what many had deemed the best team in the NFL. Do we need to rethink this Broncos team? Maybe. I had them written off for sure, but they showed toughness and fight. Unfortunately, they did lose their young stud cornerback, Pat Surtain II, to a knee injury for a few weeks which may cause them issues. They also lost offensive lineman Graham Glasgow for the season to a lower leg fracture.
Maybe this was the Broncos version of the Super Bowl. It’s the closest they’ll come for many years.
Next week the Broncos take on the Eagles. Honestly, the way the Broncos played last week, they’ll probably lay a beatdown on the Eagles. Good lord, the AFC West is such a toss-up, I just don’t know what is going to happen. That’s what makes football exciting, right?
