The Denver Broncos dropped a total of 11 games last season and they managed to win just five in return. The Broncos were two games behind the Chargers at the fourth spot. Quarterback Drew Lock was not up to the mark and the Broncos might implement a few changes. Teddy Bridgewater came in as the other quarterback but they will turn towards Lock against Minnesota. Denver made a few changes to their squad by acquiring Ronald Darby and Kyle Fuller from the cornerback positions. Josey Jewell and Justin Strnad are some of the other notable players for the Broncos.
