September was a roller coaster ride of a month for the Broncos.
Facing a very tough schedule, it's not surprising that Denver struggled at times against their opponents. The combined record of the teams Denver faced in September? Ten and five, and two of the teams they faced, the Atlanta Falcons and the Houston Texans, are undefeated.
Denver stands at 2-2 as October begins, and while being .500 isn't anything to write in the record books, they are in a good place in their division and coming off their most definitive win of the Peyton Manning-era against the Oakland Raiders.
Things won't be easy for Denver over the next two weeks. They face the New England Patriots and the San Diego Chargers, and both of those games will be played on the road. Denver is in a great position to claim the AFC West, but to do so, these players will have to continue to play great football like they did in September.
