Trevor Siemian had a rough night against the New York Giants. When asked how they were able to frustrate him all night, both safety Landon Collins and cornerback Janoris Jenkins noted where Siemian went wrong against them.
These are both key issues in the passing game that has caused the Broncos to stumble to 16, 16, and 10 points in each of their last three games. Siemian is averaging nearly 40 passes per game in each of those contests too.

Siemian's stat line the last 3 games....
At some point, Mike McCoy needs to take the pressure off Siemian and put it back onto the used-to-be top ranked rushing offense. McCoy seems to likes throwing the ball on first downs and if that doesn’t work, well then he kind of has to throw it on second and third down as well.
That has been a recipe for disaster and McCoy needs to adjust.
The Broncos are five games into the season and it is clear that the offense will need to overcome both their right tackle situation and their quarterback situation. The only way to do that is to live and die by the run game.
At 3-2, the Broncos are still in good position to make a push for the playoffs, but if McCoy fails to adjust they won’t even come close.
