The Denver Broncos (2-4) had their two-game win streak snapped last week in a blowout home loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. They’ll be underdogs again this week against another AFC West rival in the Los Angeles Chargers (2-4).
All eyes will be on Drew Lock and the Broncos offense as they look to snap out of their funk this season. Frustration in the locker room is mounting and they must turn things around quickly before the season slips away entirely. Tight end Noah Fant alluded to that frustration some after the loss to the Chiefs.
“Yeah, there were definitely words said in the locker room after the game,” Fant said. “Not going to go into detail as that stays in the locker room. They have every right to be frustrated, upset and any of the above. From my perspective being an offensive player, I put a lot of the load on us. I feel like the defense played—Kansas City is one of the most powerful and high-octane offenses in the league. They were holding them to field goals, getting three-and-outs and all these things. We’re not really living up to our ability on offense. If I was in a defensive player’s position, I would feel the exact same way. Those guys have every right to be heated and upset.”
Now is definitely the time to put up or shut up on offense. Denver plays two sub-.500 teams this week and next week, so they have a real opportunity to get back to .500 before their road game at the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 10.
Kickoff is set for 2:05 p.m. Mile High time on Sunday, November 1, 2020 at Empower Field at Mile High in Denver, Colorado. You can watch the live stream of the game through FuboTV or on your local CBS station.
