The Denver Broncos lost 27-14 to the Las Vegas Raiders to finish the season with an 8-9 losing record. After a 70-20 loss to the Dolphins in Week 3, Sean Payton’s team did rally and make a run at the playoffs, but they ultimately fizzled out and ended up benching QB Russell Wilson so his injury clause wouldn’t kick in. It looks like they’ll be looking for a quarterback this offseason.

The Broncos need a quarterback because it sure looks like Wilson is done in Denver. A draft pick would be the best with their cap situation, but the 12th overall pick probably isn’t low enough to get the guy they want. But, Washington QB Michael Penix Jr. could be there. If he is, the Broncos would have to think long and hard about grabbing him.
