Will the Broncos beat their 7.5 win projection?

The Denver Broncos over/under in 2020 is 7.5 wins. Do you you think they can beat last years win total and break .500 for the first time since 2016?

The Denver Broncos will enter the 2020 season with a paltry over/under of 7.5 wins. That seems pretty low for a team that finished 7-9 last year and only got better over the offseason with free agency and the draft.

SB Nation Reacts ran with a poll last week asking Broncos Country if the team will finish over or under that win total and, well, as you can see there is a consensus.

Why over: John Elway’s all-in approach to surrounding Drew Lock with talent pays off big. Courtland Sutton is already a star, but Noah Fant and Jerry Jeudy will join the club too. It’ll take some great offense to overcome one of the toughest schedules in the NFL, but even if they stumble the Broncos veteran defense is looking like an elite unit in 2020. They will be a tough out.

Why under: Drew Lock is entering year 2 with just five career starts and a COVID-19 shortened offseason under a new offensive system. That and a slew of new offensive players could lead to some early bumps in the road and for a young team trying to figure out how to win that could be a situation that derails a season.
