You can never underestimate any team in the NFL regardless of their situation or the consequences could be dire. The Denver Broncos found that out on Sunday night with a humbling loss to an injury-ravaged Giants squad. The Broncos will try and move past that debacle when they open a three-game road trip at the StubHub Center against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 7.
You never know what to expect coming off a bye and the Broncos were certainly floored by their mistake-filled outing against the Giants. The pride of Denver is defense, yet the Broncos allowed New York to dictate the play and run all over them. That in itself was a surprise since the Giants lost four receivers the previous game and had a bunch of unknowns trying to catch passes. The No. 1 ranked run defense entering the night allowed Orleans Darkwa to peel off 117 yards on the ground and the Giants amassed 148 on 32 carries.
The offense hasn’t been all that special since putting up 42 points against Dallas in Week 2 and the group looked out of sorts. Trevor Siemian tossed a pair of interceptions, one that was returned for a score, and was sacked four times. He sustained a shoulder injury diving to make a tackle on the pick-six. The Broncos aren’t built to play from behind and when they fell in a hole, Siemian was unable to bring them back. He did throw for 376 yards, but most of that was in a failed comeback attempt.

Week 6: Giants 23, Broncos 10
ATS Result: Giants +13.5
Over/Under Total Result: Under 37.5
The Broncos said they didn’t overlook the Giants, but the result says otherwise. It was an embarrassing loss to a team that hadn’t won a game and was coming off a tumultuous week. Brandon McManus missed a field goal that would’ve tied the game in the first quarter and the Giants drove 80 yards on the ensuing possession to take a 10-0 lead. The Broncos never recovered and suffered one of the biggest upsets of the season.
Week 5: Bye
Week 4: Broncos 16, Raiders 10
ATS Result: Broncos -3.5
Over/Under Total Result: Under 44
It was the kind of win we’ve grown accustomed to seeing the Broncos obtain over the past few seasons. The defense was stellar and Siemian bounced back from a rough outing in Buffalo to get enough points and the cover win. But the outcome was about the D. The group held Oakland to 254 total yards and just 24 on the ground. The win was sealed by a late interception and the over was never in danger.
Week 3: Bills 26, Broncos 16
ATS Result: Bills +3.5
Over/Under Total Result: Over 40
After winning twice at home to open the year, the Broncos failed their first road test of the season. Siemian took a lot of the blame for the loss, and he deserved most of it, but the Broncos failed to contain an offense that didn’t score a touchdown the previous game and was questionable at best. They did stop the run, but allowed Tyrod Taylor a pair of short scoring tosses and turned the ball over on four straight possessions to close the game.
Week 2: Broncos 42, Cowboys 17
ATS Result: Broncos +2.5
Over/Under Total Result: Over 44
It was billed as one of the best games of the week but it quickly turned into a one-sided affair with the Broncos doing all the damage. Siemian tossed three of his four touchdown passes during a 28-3 scoring burst spanning the second and third quarters, turning a tie game into a 35-10 Broncos lead. Denver completely frustrated Elliott, holding him to just eight yards on nine carries and the second interception of the game was returned 103-yards for a touchdown to cap the rout. The Broncos nearly reached the total on their own and the over is 2-0.
Week 1: Broncos 24, Chargers 21
ATS Result: PUSH Broncos -3
Over/Under Total Result: Over 41.5
The oddsmakers nailed this one as the game ended in a push with the Broncos favored by 3-points at kickoff. Denver played a solid game defensively holding the Chargers to 249 total yards, but a letdown in the fourth quarter allowed LA to climb back into the game. The Chargers took advantage of a short field following two turnovers and converted those into touchdowns as the teams cashed the over. Denver avoided the loss with a huge special teams play.
Preseason Record: 4-0
ATS Record: 3-0-1
Over/Under Total Record: 2-2
With Lynch sidelined due to an injury, Siemian should feel secure with his starting job after the team inked Brock Osweiler to be his backup. Whoever said you can’t go home was dead wrong as Osweiler returns after his failed attempt to become a full-time starter. The Broncos didn’t score a lot of points last season and expect more of the same, but these teams have played above the closing total in the last three and six of the last seven at Mile High.
