The Broncos' main problem on offense is turnovers.
They are 30th in the NFL in fumbles, with seven lost so far this season. Last week, the Broncos offense fumbled the ball twice inside the Patriots' 20-yard line, ruining a chance of putting at least six points on the board.
Dropped passes are also a big problem that needs to be fixed. The offense had five dropped passes against the Texans, many of them unforced. Proper ball-handling is to blame, not necessarily great defense from the opposing team.
These two problems are easily fixable. After being stripped of the ball following a 35-yard gain in the first quarter against the Patriots, Demaryius Thomas has been determined to fix his ball-security issues.
Thomas has been carrying around a football to practice, meetings and film sessions. To add difficulty, the ball is covered in two beanies, making it hard to grip. Also, there are two letter Ms on the ball, symbolizing the names of wide receiver coach, Tyke Tolbert's daughters. Thomas' assignment is to protect the ball from the swatting of teammates as if the ball is Tolbert's daughters.
With the extra time the bye provides, other members of the offense should follow Thomas' lead and carry around a football while teammates try to swat it away.
