Overall Team DVOA

20.9% 9th

The Broncos settled on Teddy Bridgewater at quarterback. Or did they settle FOR Bridgewater? Either way, they outscored their preseason opponents 80-21, offering some evidence that our optimistic DVOA projections are on the level. The Broncos won’t be flashy, but there’s a niche in the AFC playoff ecosystem for a team with a great defense and station-to-station offense, and the Broncos have been working for six long years to fill it.
