The Denver Broncos are desperate for a win in Week 8 at home against the Washington Football Team to end a four-game slide after that hot 3-0 start. Getting back to .500 would be huge as the team faces a tough test next week on the road against the Dallas Cowboys

Game Preview

We’re starting to see a disturbing trend with the Broncos offense. We saw it last year with Drew Lock under center and we’re seeing it this year with Teddy Bridgewater. It seems the Pat Shurmur system struggles to find success in the red zone and the Broncos scoring woes continue to plague them week after week.

Shurmur seems to think the only thing that needs to change is for players to keep grinding. In other words, just keep banging your head against that brick wall until you break through.

You just keep grinding it out,” Shurmur explained earlier this week. “Games are all played differently. Sometimes there’s not much scoring in the first half of games and then all of a sudden halftime comes along and both teams score a lot. I don’t know why that is. I doubt it’s the halftime speeches, but things just get going. You get a better feel for things. Maybe adjustments that you were prepared for going in settle in a little better. That’s why there’s 60 minutes and you have to try to utilize all of them.”

The Broncos offense can’t get anything done in the red zone early in games - you know the part of the game heavily practiced and game planned by the offensive coordinator - but its on the players to keep grinding it out. Come on, man!

If Denver doesn’t start winning more games, Broncos Country is going to become a less enjoyable place to remain employed for Vic Fangio and his coordinators.

Here’s how to watch.

Broncos-WFT Betting Odds

According to DraftKings Sportsbook, the Denver Broncos have had their advantage on the line grow to 3.5-points against the Washington Football Team. That is a half point higher than when the line opened. Teddy Bridgewater has a historically good record of following the spread in games, so if Denver is favored to win they should win and if they are not they will not. At least if Brigewater’s career record against spreads continues as it has since he came into the NFL.

Odds/lines subject to change. T&Cs apply. See for details.

Matchup History

The Broncos have an interesting history against WFT. Obviously, the loss against them in Super Bowl XXII in 1987 is up there, but the interesting aspect to this rivalry is how often they trade wins and losses. Since the turn of the century, the Broncos and WFT have traded games. Washington won the last one in 2017, so that must mean it is Denver’s turn.
