Broncos Country enjoying relevant football heading into December

The Denver Broncos have won four-straight and gotten back to .500 as they look to make some waves in the AFC in December. And fans are loving it.

The Denver Broncos hit rock bottom in Week 5 after a home loss to Nathaniel Hackett and the New York Jets. The same Hackett-led Jets that gave up the first ever pick-six on a hail mary attempt yesterday. It can’t get much lower than that!

Since then, they are 4-1 and have played each of those five opponents really well. I do not think we have these SB Nation Reacts surveys going back when the Broncos were this much in the mix heading into December. 94% of fans are confident in this team right now.

Against the Cleveland Browns, the Broncos have a chance to achieve their first winning record in December in a long time and will be right there in the mix for one of the final AFC playoff spots. Beating the Browns and the Houston Texans next week will be vital for their playoff aspirations as it could come down to critical tiebreakers against both of those teams.
