The Denver Broncos (6-6) will be looking to secure an emotional win over the Detroit Lions (1-10-1) in Week 14. This game will have Demaryius Thomas’ presence everywhere as we all look to have his life and memory honored today.

Game preview

Detroit is down a lot of players in this game with a huge flu outbreak followed by multiple COVID-19 infections. That should spell disaster for a team that has lost more games in 2021 than any other team in the NFL. The Broncos just have to take advantage of it.

I think the recipe for success for Denver is to stay focused on a run-heavy offensive game plan. Just grind Melvin Gordon and Javonte Williams out drive after drive after drive. While it seems like that would be a logical move, we’re talking about Pat Shurmur here so who knows what his genius will decide is the right course of action.
