The Denver Broncos (3-6) continued their downward spiral under Drew Lock with a blowout loss to the hated Las Vegas Raiders last week and will host the surging Miami Dolphins (6-3) in Week 11.
According to SportsBetting.com, the Broncos will once again be home underdogs as they are 3.5-point dogs to the Dolphins with an over/under set at 45. There is some doubt in Lock’s status for this game and, frankly, if they go to Brett Rypien then it might just be enough to steal a win from a Dolphins team that has had a hot hand over the last month.

Welp, it is officially time to begin looking at the 2021 NFL Draft odds each and every week. According to ESPN, the Broncos are in solid position to compete for a Top 5 overall pick. Though they’d be hard pressed to catch the 0-9 New York Jets or 1-8 Jacksonville Jaguars before it is all said and done.
8. Denver Broncos (3-6)
Average draft position: 8.8
FPI chance to earn No. 1 pick: 0.1%
FPI chance to earn top-five pick: 19.7%
The Jets would need to get on a tear to change things enough for Denver steal away that number one overall pick, however, they are definitely in position to compete for a top end draft choice. With games against teams with a 6-3, 8-1, and 7-2 record coming up over the next three weeks, the Broncos could very easily be 3-9 and solidly in the Top 3 draft pick range.
As for this upcoming game, a quarterback change could very easily upset our dreams of a Top 3 draft selection. Drew Lock has regressed horribly, so using his injuries last week as a way to give him some bench time could be just what the doctor ordered to drum up a win against a superior foe.
