Denver Broncos Week 12 Power Rankings: Around The Web

New, comments

Where do the Denver Broncos rank around the web after their disappointing loss to the St. Louis Rams this past weekend.

Our weekly look around the web for how the Broncos rank in NFL Power Rankings.

The Denver Post: 3

It's hard to tell whether their offense can run the ball because it doesn't try. Nine carries against a St. Louis front four that needed to be kept honest? They need to add a running back for depth.

Thoughts: The game plan last week sucked something major that's for sure.

Denver scored seven points, the fewest by the Broncos with Peyton Manning as quarterback. Manning's NFL-record 15-game streak with multiple touchdown passes was snapped in Sunday's shocker.

Thoughts: The case could be made that KC should be ahead of Denver here, but i'll take it.

The loss in St. Louis was pretty significant, and not merely because of the injuries. The Broncos have now lost three games on the season, same as the Chiefs. Those two teams will meet at Arrowhead in Week 13 for a game that looms very large with regard to both the AFC West race and the AFC wild-card hunt. I still think Kansas City ends up as the fifth seed.

Thoughts: That game in arrowhead is going to be huge. Lets hope we figure out our offensive woes by then.

What the heck happened in St. Louis? Who was that team? Injuries are starting to be a concern.

Thoughts: We're all asking that question Prisco. Injuries are a concern. Was hoping we would avoid the injury bug this year.

Fox Sports: 5

With injuries to two of Peyton Manning’s top targets, the Broncos' passing game was littered with miscommunications and mistakes. The Rams' offense hit on enough big offensive plays to steal a win.

Thoughts: A lot of bad happened in St. Louis.

Final Thoughts:

Seeing as I avoided anything football related the past few days, doing this post pained me some. The team just sucked last Sunday. Hopefully they can get healthier and right this ship and get hot before the playoffs.
