The Denver Broncos’ offense hasn’t had much success through the air in the first half of Sunday’s game against the Las Vegas Raiders, but their rushing attack has been productive. So it was a curious decision when the Broncos decided to throw the ball on a 4th-and-1 situation at their...
Injuries continue to severely hamper the Denver Broncos as the team continues its depressing three-game losing skid. Starting linebacker Alexander Johnson is the latest key starter to be lost for the season after suffering a pectoral tear in Week 6's loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. Head coach Vic Fangio...
After this week, there’s no doubt that the Broncos belong in the cellar of the AFC West. Now the remaining questions are, where do the other teams in the division stand, and is there any way that the Broncos could claw their way out of this hole? Let’s look. 1....
The Denver Broncos can no longer accept Vic Fangio as the head coach to get them over the top. After a solid 3-0 start, that proved to be a mirage for Vic Fangio and the Denver Broncos. Apparently, the New York Giants, the Jacksonville Jaguars and the New York Jets...

Ladies and gentlemen, what you see is what you get and what the Denver Broncos are getting is a whole lot of not much. For the third week in a row, Denver showed up to a game grossly unprepared to play and for the third week in a row, they got their butts handed to them with a big beautiful bow in a basket.
The sky may seem to be falling, according to supporters of the Denver Broncos, as their team is on a three-game skid, following a 3-0 start to open the 2021 season. And while times are tough for the hometown team, not all is lost, as general manager George Paton has several cards to play to boost the team’s immediate — and long-time — fortunes.
Keeler: Is Broncos GM George Paton just John Elway 2.0? Quarterback’s still problematic. So’s depth. The secondary. And the offensive line.
If Broncos fans think the bottom of the AFC West standings is depressing, look at everybody at the top for a second. Check out the one common element. Buffalo? Franchise quarterback. Baltimore? Franchise quarterback. Cincy-freaking-nati? Franchise quarterback. Chargers? Raiders? Franchise quarterback. Franchise quarterback. Dallas? Green Bay? Tampa? Arizona? Los Angeles...
The Broncos’ 3-0 start? That’s a distant memory at this point. Three straight losses, including a lopsided 34-24 loss to the visiting Raiders on Sunday, have shifted early-season optimism to a sense of dread and déjà vu in Broncos Country. As Denver Post columnist writes, the quarterback’s still problematic. So’s depth. The secondary. And the offensive line.
Von Miller’s legacy is secure. Even if Miller never played another game in a Denver Broncos uniform, he would rightly be considered the best defensive player in team history — and that history includes Hall-of-Famers in Steve Atwater and Champ Bailey, and Ring-of-Famers in Karl Mecklenburg, Randy Gradishar, Tom Jackson, Billy Thompson and Louis Wright. Miller’s impact over the course of his now-10th season as a Bronco will become the bar by which all other Broncos will be measured.
What a difference 3 weeks makes. The first 3 weeks of the season, the Broncos, their coaches and the organization could do no wrong but 3 weeks later, fans are disgusted (and understandably so) with a 3 game losing streak that seems even worse considering the way the losses have come.
In Broncos Country, the sentiment of the day – probably the week – is pretty simple:. That’s just what happens to Broncos coaches when their team gets embarrassed at home by the Raiders – the coachless Raiders, no less. Wade Phillips was shown the door following the 1994 season, a campaign in which he was swept by the Raiders, including a 48-16 drubbing at home. Josh McDaniels was whacked five games after getting beat by (then) Oakland 59-14 right in front of Mr. Bowlen himself.
Kiszla: After committing worst sin in Broncos Country with home loss to Raiders, can Vic Fangio survive as coach?
The fuse has been lit. The clock’s ticking to doomsday. The Broncos are a time bomb. “Ninety-six hours, that’s all we’ve got,” Denver quarterback Teddy Bridgewater said shortly before 6 p.m. Sunday, counting every desperate second of every urgent hour that stood between this loss to the hated Raiders and the distinct possibility of a four-game losing streak that coach Vic Fangio cannot possibly survive.

The Broncos are coming off an embarrassing home loss to the Las Vegas Raiders, but that doesn’t change the fact that the Browns were also blown out at home by the Arizona Cardinals last week. Both teams are reeling at 3-3 and will be looking to salvage their respective seasons on Thursday Night Football.

When it was the Baltimore Ravens, it was understandable. When it was the Pittsburgh Steelers, it was confusing. Now that it was the Las Vegas Raiders, it’s infuriating. The takeaway from this game? There can be no forgiving a performance like the one the Denver Broncos put on at Mile High Stadium. Mike Shanahan deserved better. We deserved better.
Sunday's loss was a tough one to swallow for Broncos Country, but there were plenty of things that happened other than a disappointing loss. The tailgating was as fun as always, Mike Shanahan officially joined Broncos greats in the Ring Of Fame, and Justin Simmons makes a young fans day. The sports department gives you a behind-the-scenes look into yesterday's game at Empower Field.
• Incredibly disappointed in the Broncos “effort” in their loss to the Raiders. Stunning that a Raiders team that had lost two in a row and were without Jon Gruden came into Denver with a special teams coach in charge and looked like the better coached, more unified, hungrier team.
