The Denver Broncos have two rollercoaster wins under their belts. The defense is electrifying; the offense, not so much (although it has been exciting at times). The Broncos are a "perfect" 2-0, but the team's close calls have most fans hesitant to give them a perfect grade.
Week 1 - Broncos 19, Ravens 13
Most fans gave the Broncos a C following the Ravens game, likely due to Peyton Manning's apparent struggles (a pick-six with no touchdowns will cause some fan backlash for any starting NFL quarterback).
I'd give the Broncos a B for this game. The offensive line and Peyton need work, but special teams and defense more than carried the team to an above-average performance.
Week 2 - Broncos 31, Chiefs 24
Most fans gave the Broncos a B following the Chiefs game - they needed a last-minute miracle to get the win, but with five takeaways and a fourth quarter touchdown drive, this game featured a very good Broncos performance.
I'd give the Broncos an A for this game. Any win in Arrowhead is an automatic 'A' in my book.
Calculating out the grades between the two weeks, the Broncos have a 2.67 GPA - equivalent to a B-. Let's see if they can continue to set the NFL curve by going 3-0 against the Detroit Lions this week.
