The 2012 Denver Broncos entered the postseason as the Super Bowl favorites and ended it with a whimper—losing 38-35 in double overtime to the fourth-seeded Baltimore Ravens in the divisional round of the playoffs.
Although the Broncos led the game 35-28 and seemed to have the game locked up with under 40 seconds to go before Jacoby Jones' miraculous 79-yard touchdown catch that tied the game, there were some flaws revealed in the Broncos arsenal.
Denver was a well-balanced team throughout the 2012 season, ranking second in the NFL in points scored and fourth in the NFL in points allowed. They were the only team in the NFL to rank in the top five in both categories.
However, in going 13-3, the Broncos did face an easy schedule in facing their AFC West rivals in six out of their 16 games. All three teams in the AFC West finished with a losing record in 2012.
Through over 75 minutes of grueling football with a tough team in the Ravens, it showed the Broncos weren't as complete of a team as we thought and maybe not as dominant as we expected them to be entering the postseason.
What are some positions on the field that should be addressed through free agency or the draft entering 2013?
