No doubt the Broncos had a great start this season. 6-0 was a suprise to all considering their new coach and different QB. But after their week 7 bye things went down hill. Losing four straight to some teams (Redskins) that they should of beat.

Just coming off a win against the Giants, are the Broncos back to their 6-0 ways? With a rivalry game against the Chiefs coming up. The Broncos should be able to come through with eight wins at the end of the week. But Arrow Head Stadium has not always been the favorite place for the Broncos.

Two things the Broncos need to focus on is keeping their defense strong, and keeping Orton healthy. With Champ Bailey, D.J. Williams, and others on defense it shouldn't be hard. The main thing is the passing game. While Orton is smart with the ball he still needs work on making sure interception numbers are small.  

The running game is pretty much covered with the ball in Moreno's hands. The line just needs to protect him and Orton. The Broncos should come out with a win this week, but should still keep in mind the games ahead of them, and keeping the division title within reach.
