NFL: Los Angeles Chargers at Denver Broncos Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

In Week 9, the Denver Broncos (3-4) will be in Georgia to take on the Atlanta Falcons (2-6). Both teams have won more games in recent weeks than their records would suggest. Denver has won three of their last four, while Atlanta two of their last three.

Game Preview

All eyes will be back on Drew Lock as Broncos Country anxiously awaits to see if the young quarterback follows up that comeback win with a more consistent performance on the road against the Falcons.

Offensive Coordinator Pat Shumur met with the media on Thursday to was asked what he learned about Lock during that final quarter and a half last Sunday.

“He was able to lead us to victory,” Shurmur said. “I think that’s important for a quarterback. Somebody will eventually start doing the math and start adding up how many game-winning drives the quarterback executed and all that. So, I think that’s important. Being able to make clutch throws in critical situations, that’s very important and it was hitting the fan that night, for sure. I think being able to do that is helpful.

“Now, the flip side of that, and once the dust all settles, you guys say, ‘OK, how do we execute better early?’ And I think that’s the challenge moving forward. I think we would all agree that shooting three pointers at the buzzer is not the way to do this thing, but proving that you can do it—I think you draw confidence for that because the reality of this thing is, if you play enough games in a season, you’re going to be faced with those situations more than once or twice, and you got to have the confidence that you can go out there and get it done.”

It’s the last paragraph that stuck out to me. Executing better early on is going to produce far more wins for Lock and the Broncos than any luck-filled four touchdown effort in the final quarter and a half to win by a single point will. Hopefully we’ll start to see some early execution beginning this week.

Broncos Betting Odds

According to SportsBetting.com, the Broncos are seemingly perpetual underdogs. Despite their 3-4 record, they head into Atlanta a 4-point underdog to the 2-6 Atlanta Falcons. Perhaps if they win this game, they’ll start to get a little more action from oddmakers on the point spread side of things.

Matchup History

The Broncos hold a slight edge over the Falcons all-time with an 8-6 record in the regular season, but they are also 1-0 in the playoff thanks to Super Bowl 33. However, they have lost three of their last four to the Falcons dating back to 2004.
