. That back side run is an example of something you can do when you have 2 weeks to practice it . There is a great example of the inequality of this particular game. Now I know this isn't the NFL's fault, but rather a function of this chaotic time in our country. But to use some parlance of the past, Denver has clearly had an "UNFAIR ADVANTAGE" in the run up to this game. And in fact I am fairly surprised to see how close this game still is. LOTS of time and the ball first.. So to win this game is not impossible, it isn't going to be easy
This team had the potential to be pretty darn good, but between injuries and COVID (and all the fallout from COVID) they've been gimped. It's a shame to see.
With a little luck they'd be 4-0 right now. 2-3 isn't a death sentence by any means, but you need to find the Ws somewhere. Hopefully they can pull this one out today - their depth is so thin but they still have a chance.
If they can weather the next month, survive the COVID inactives and injuries, and come out the other side with no more than 5 losses, then they'll have a chance late in the season to get in the playoffs and make a late push.
