23. Denver Broncos (27)
For a quarterback that has been more than patient to receive an opportunity to prove himself worthy of being a NFL starter, Brandon Allen must be feeling all of the confidence in the world after leading the Denver Broncos to a win over the Cleveland Browns.
Watching Joe Flacco head to IR was devastating for the Broncos when considering the former Super Bowl MVP was supposed to be the answer to finally help this offense.
One game certainly doesn’t mean that Allen is the answer Denver has been searching for, but all things considered, they have plenty of reasons to feel confident following his impressive win over Cleveland in Week 9.
For years, the Broncos’ defense has done most of the heavy lifting, and it’s been unfair to watch the offense fail to come through on their end for the most part due to all of the issues at quarterback.
If Allen can find a way to build off his first career start, maybe there will be hope for Denver after all in the AFC when it comes to getting back in the playoff race. starting in two weeks when the Broncos return from the bye to face the Minnesota Vikings.
