The Denver Broncos (3-4) face a tough road match against the surging Kansas City Chiefs (6-1), which fans expect the Broncos to lose by at least a touchdown in our latest FanPulse survey. To add to the worry, just 21% of fans still think the Broncos can make the playoffs in 2018.
Realistically, Denver would need to win this game on the road to have a chance to springboard through a seemingly weaker schedule down the stretch to finish with 10-wins and a playoff opportunity. At 3-4, that seems like a bit of a longshot.
However, fan confidence has slowly rebounded from rock bottom a few weeks ago with a close 23-20 loss to a strong Los Angeles Rams team and a 45-10 shellacking of the Arizona Cardinals boosting hope in Broncos Country.
My takeaways from all of this is that fans are not at all confident in this team, but its not as bad as it was. Most of us expect a loss, but a win would likely change everything for this team and for us fans in these weekly surveys.
