Hopium or legit: Coming off a big win over KC, there’s a shift in Broncos Country

At the very least, it’s exciting to feel excited about the Broncos again. Hopefully, they don’t crash and burn.

Good morning, Broncos Country!

Coming off the Denver Broncos bye, there is definitely a shift in the mood.

Broncos Country is actually really confident heading into Week 10 against the Buffalo Bills. After what happened in Week 3, this is quite the shift. Beating the Kansas City Chiefs for the first time in 16 games will have that effect.

But this either copious amounts of hopium or it’s legit. Again, beating your division rival for the first time since 2015 will do that to a fanbase starved for something, anything.

I happen to fall in the latter and think the win over Kansas City is going to spark the Broncos on a run for the NFL playoffs.

As Adam Malnati laid out, the schedule actually breaks pretty favorably for Denver. And it starts on Monday.

Tied into that are the current odds at DraftKings Sportsbook for the Broncos to make the playoffs. That currently sits at +1,800. That is an incredible value, especially if you think Denver will make it happen.

This is either overdosing on hopium or legit. Let’s hope after seven years of horridness this is legit.
