2016 NFL Power Rankings: Denver Broncos

Below you will find a table of Denver Broncos results in our 2016 NFL Power Rankings.

Week/PeriodRankRecordComments
Initial40-0Although they field last year's top-ranked defense, the defending champs go into the draft without either first-ballot Hall-of-Famer Peyton Manning or presumed 2016 starter Brock Osweiler, who signed a free-agent deal with Houston. Perhaps they will be able to work out a deal for Colin Kaepernick; otherwise, Mark Sanchez currently tops their quarterback depth chart.
Post-Draft50-0While he may not start any games this season, the Broncos got their long-term replacement for Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler in the draft as they traded up for Paxton Lynch. You could argue that Lynch has as much upside as any quarterback prospect in this draft class based on his tools and he is an excellent system fit for Denver's offense.
Week 180-0Preseason win projection: 9-7
Week 251-0C.J. Anderson averaged an RB-high 6.35 yards per carry from Weeks 7 to 17 last season and he picked up where he left off in Week 1. Anderson racked up a total of 139 yards and two scores on 24 touches against a stingy Panthers defense. Inexperience at quarterback is a concern, but the Broncos will rely heavily on their rushing attack and defense.
Week 332-0Per NFL Research's Twitter feed, the Broncos have gone 28 consecutive games without allowing a passer rating of 100-plus. The next longest streak is nine games (Steelers).
