The Denver Broncos were expected to contend for the AFC West this season, but they never were able to get things going in the first season with Russell Wilson at quarterback. Denver was eliminated from the playoffs fairly early with plenty of work to do to make this team into a postseason contender.
The defense does not need a ton of work because that side of the ball wasn’t much of a problem all season long, and it was especially strong against the pass. Just about everything needs work offensively as the Broncos were below average compared to the rest of the league in the passing and running game. Wilson needs to produce at a much higher level in Year 2 in Denver.
