6 Bold (and Slightly Less Bold) Predictions for the 2014 Denver Broncos
USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos are one of the best teams in the NFL today. They have arguably the league’s most dangerous offense, and the team is capable of scoring points in bunches almost every week. Defensively, the Broncos have made changes to the roster with hopes of improving their performance on that side of the ball in 2014.

In order to make a Super Bowl run again this year, the Broncos are going to need to fire on all cylinders. The offense is striving for more balance this year, and that could mean more from the ground game in 2014. They have new additions to the passing game, which should keep them as dangerous through the air as they were last season.

The offensive line has undergone changes this offseason. These moves have given the team massive size up front, and that could lead to better success when facing more physical defenses like those that reside in the NFC West.

The Broncos are looking for a better pass rush this year, and if they get more pressure on opposing quarterbacks it will help their overall performance. The team wants to be as dangerous on defense as they are on offense.

Having a well-rounded team means holding up against the pass and the run. Teams who try to play keep away from Peyton Manning and the offense may try to run more against Denver. The defense needs to be ready to stuff the run and intimidate opponents who try to wear them down.

Many teams will fall behind to the Broncos and switch into a pass-happy mode much earlier than they do against other (less dangerous) opponents. This means the defense has to be ready for a lot of passes thrown against them as opponents try to get back in the game. Having an improved secondary—one that can create turnovers—will also greatly help the team play up to expectations in 2014.

Here are six bold (and slightly less bold) predictions for the Broncos this season.
