2015 Denver Broncos Schedule | Season Handicapping Picks

2015 NFL Football – Broncos Analysis

The Denver Broncos window for another championship is quickly closing as evidenced by 39-year old Peyton Manning’s issues late last season. Manning will be healthy and motivated heading into 2015 however with a typically stacked roster that appears build to win another AFC West crown.

2015 Season Win Total: Broncos 10 wins (OVER -130, UNDER +100); 2014 wins: 12
***2015 BONUSES***

The Broncos have won 13, 13 and 12 games in the last three seasons under Manning with little reason to think that they are ready to take a step back.

That said, both starting cornerbacks Brandon Browner and Darrelle Revis are gone as well as Julius Thomas – those are huge holes to fill. So where does Denver end up in 2015? Can they surpass the 10 wins that Vegas has set out for them?

Let’s take a look at the full schedule and break down Denver’s chances of another 10+ win season.

Week 1: Sunday, Sept. 13, Baltimore, 4:25 p.m. ET

The Broncos get a test right off the bat with the Ravens coming to town. Denver’s offense with a healthy Manning has lit up the Ravens in the past and in a warm weather game with so much hype heading into the season expect Manning at his best in this one. After all, Manning did throw seven TDs the last time he opened the season at home against Baltimore.

Week 2: Thursday, Sept. 17, at Kansas City, 8:25 p.m. ET

We all know that Arrowhead is a nightmare for opposing teams but Denver’s all around game should prove to be too much for the still largely one dimensional Chiefs. The Broncos will own the AFC West and it all starts in Week 2.

Week 3: Sunday, Sept. 27, at Detroit, 8:30 p.m. ET

No Ndamukong Suh for the Lions is the difference here. Manning will be afforded some time in the pocket and should be able to shred the Lions secondary here. The Broncos look motivated and dispatch their third straight quality team and move to 3-0.

Week 4: Sunday, Oct. 4, Minnesota, 4:25 p.m. ET

If Adrian Peterson plays this game may be close but in the end you can’t deny the talent difference all over the field in this one. At Mile High this is a game that Denver should win.

Week 5: Sunday, Oct. 11, at Oakland, 4:25 p.m. ET

Oakland had a pretty good draft and they do have an emerging offense. Add in the fact that Denver’s former defensive coordinator is in charge in Oakland now and suddenly this game has some intrigue. That said the Broncos scored 40+ in both meeting last year- they should roll.

Week 6: Sunday, Oct. 18, at Cleveland, 1 p.m. ET

6-0 anyone? Simply put the Broncos are a superior team in every aspect of the game. With the professionalism on this team I don’t expect a let-down.

Cleveland may have some OK pieces but there is absolutely no way their unflattering offense scores enough in this one.

Week 7: BYE

Week 8: Sunday, Nov. 1, Green Bay, 8:30 p.m. ET

Heavyweight battle coming out of their bye. The Broncos face their toughest stretch of the season. I think they take care of Green Bay at home – the Broncos will be rested and ready to challenge themselves against another one of the elite. I have faith in Denver especially at home.

Week 9: Sunday, Nov. 8, at Indianapolis, 4:25 p.m. ET

The Colts had an interesting offseason adding Frank Gore, Andre Johnson and Trent Cole – they are more formidable than last year’s squad. I am expecting a bit of a hiccup after their win against Green Bay and for the Broncos to lose their first game of the season here but it will be fun!

Week 10: Sunday, Nov. 15, Kansas City, 4:25 p.m. ET

Denver matches up very well with the Chiefs. I can’t see Denver losing this one at home.

Week 11: Sunday, Nov. 22, at Chicago, 1 p.m. ET

Denver faces their former Coach in Week 11. John Fox will have the inside scoop on what Denver is trying to do but that doesn’t make up for the fact that the Broncos are the superior team here. There is no way Denver loses this one! They head home to play New England with a 9-1 record.

Week 12: Sunday, Nov. 29, New England, 8:30 p.m. ET

A lot of controversy and intrigue surrounds the Patriots heading into the season – who knows where Brady and company’s head will be at in Week 12. What I do know is that the duo of Belichik and Brady have owned Peyton Manning teams – no reason to think differently about this season.

Week 13: Sunday, Dec. 6, at San Diego, 4:05 p.m. ET

The Chargers enter the season with a lot of question marks – pretty hard to predict where their heads will be at – Philip Rivers isn’t happy and the shouts for relocation to LA are loud by December. Denver takes advantage of a somewhat messy Chargers situation and walks out of San Diego 10-2.

Week 14: Sunday, Dec. 13, Oakland, 4:05 p.m. ET

Oakland makes some strides in 2015 but they still have a ways to go. Denver has their eyes on some nice playoff seeding by Week 14 and won’t let this one slip through their hands.

Week 15: Sunday, Dec. 20, at Pittsburgh, 4:25 p.m. ET

Denver is due for a hiccup – they need to get a dud out of the way before the playoffs. It comes against Ben Roethlisberger, Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown who combine to outscore the Broncos in a cold weather game.

Pittsburgh is fighting for their playoff lives and are the more motivated team here.

Week 16: Monday, Dec. 28, Cincinnati, 8:30 p.m. ET

The Bengals are one of the more difficult teams to predict – who knows which team will show up in Week 16. For that reason I’m taking to Broncos to avenge a loss in Pittsburgh. They head into the final week at 12-3.

Week 17: Sunday, Jan. 3, San Diego, 4:25 p.m. ET.

My guess is that the Broncos have little to play for and that they rest a few of their guys and with the Chargers still alive, San Diego takes advantage and wins this game.

Make no mistake about it – the Broncos are All-In this year. With a healthy Peyton Manning and some better protection around him Denver is poised to easily win the AFC West again. As for an AFC crown and Super Bowl I have my doubts.

Mr. Manning hasn’t been the most reliable January/February performer. The rigors of another season at age 39 has me feeling that another early round exit from the playoffs is imminent.

Still, Denver wins 12 and surpassed the 10 wins that Vegas has set out.
