Denver Broncos NFL Betting

The Denver Broncos were the most disappointing team in the NFL this season. Denver was expected to contend for the AFC West title and was seen as a Super Bowl threat, but the Broncos finished with their worst record since 2010. Russell Wilson had his worst season yet, and the Broncos started experiencing serious buyer’s remorse after just a month. That led to Denver firing first-year head coach Nathaniel Hackett after Week 15, and the Broncos are reportedly interested in either Sean Payton or defensive coordinator Dan Quinn to lead the team into 2023.

Denver Broncos 2022 Season Recap

Broncos Country wanted to ride with Russell Wilson, but the former Super Bowl winning quarterback had an awful 2022 campaign. Denver was rumored to be more interested in signing Aaron Rodgers last offseason, but the franchise quickly set its sights on Wilson after Rodgers signed an extension with Green Bay.

The Broncos ended up trading Drew Lock, Noah Fant, Shelby Harris, two first-round picks, two second-round picks, and a fifth-round pick to Seattle in exchange for Wilson and a fourth-round pick. It was one of the biggest trades we’ve seen in modern NFL history, and John Elway was thrilled with the move as it seemingly locked down the quarterback position for the foreseeable future. Denver hadn’t made the playoffs since 2015 largely due to quarterback play, and the Broncos started 11 different players under center from 2016 to 2021.

Wilson signed a five-year, $242.6 million contract with $160 million in guaranteed money. He woefully underdelivered in his first season in the Mile High City though as Denver finished dead last in scoring with 16.9 PPG. Wilson completed just 60.5% of his passes for 3,524 yards (7.3 YPA) with 16 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He was sacked a whopping 55 times too, and he only ran for 277 yards (5.0 YPC) and three touchdowns.

Those numbers look even worse considering Denver had a solid receiving corps. Jerry Jeudy and Courtland Sutton had nice seasons, but Tim Patrick suffered a season-ending injury in training camp. Still, Jeudy had 67 receptions for 972 yards and six touchdowns, while Sutton had 64 catches for 829 yards and two TDs. Unheralded tight end Greg Dulcich had a nice year too with 33 receptions for 411 yards and two scores.

The ground game was supposed to be a strength of the team. Second-year running back Javonte Williams suffered a season-ending injury in Week 4 though, and Melvin Gordon III could not hold onto the football. Gordon averaged just 3.5 YPC and fumbled five times in 115 touches.

Denver’s defense was a top five unit for much of the season. The Broncos were so good on this side of the ball through the first 10 games that Denver would have been 9-1 going into Week 12 if they would have scored just 18 points in every game. By the end of the season, they had fallen off somewhat though, allowing 21.1 PPG. The Broncos ranked seventh in total defense, surrendering 320.0 YPG.

The front seven was very good although the Broncos traded away Bradley Chubb to Miami at the deadline. Denver received San Francisco’s first-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft for Chubb, giving the Broncos some draft capital after the team gave up so much for Wilson in the offseason.

Alex Singleton and Josey Jewell were sure tacklers at linebacker, and the star of the unit was Patrick Surtain II. Surtain led the Broncos with 10 pass breakups, and he was named a Pro Bowler in his second season.

Founded in 1960 as charter members of the American Football League, the Denver Broncos did not post a winning record until 1973. In the franchise's early years, the Broncos were known for their hideous brown and yellow uniforms that included vertical socks. Even when they went to orange and blue in the mid-1960s, the team was still bad and ran on a shoestring budget. The biggest claim to fame for the Broncos was their win over the Detroit Lions in a 1966 exhibition game. It was the first exhibition game between the AFL and NFL and a shocking upset.

Led by the Orange Crush defense, Denver finally made the playoffs and the first Super Bowl in 1977, losing to the Dallas Cowboys.

In 1983, the franchise's fortunes changed forever with the arrival of first round draft choice John Elway. Elway rewrote the Broncos record book as a Hall of Fame quarterback. Elway and the Broncos lost three Super Bowls before finally winning the Vince Lombardi Trophy in 1997 and 1998 before Elway retired to become a team executive, which he is to this day.

Indianapolis Colts import Peyton Manning led the Broncos to two Super Bowls, including their last Super Bowl championship in 2015, and retired after the game. Since then, the Broncos have not had a credible quarterback. Until the arrival of Russell Wilson in 2022.
