The Broncos are coming off a brutal loss in Pittsburgh. The final score doesn’t tell the whole story, as the game was not close. The scoreboard reading 27-19 when the clock hit 00:00 wasn’t indicative of how the day went.

The Steelers controlled the time of possession, crushed the Broncos on third down, and moved the ball up and down the filed against Vic Fangio’s defense. It was ugly, and it made me realize, the Broncos the “get right” team in the NFL right now.

Teams that are struggling in certain areas can face the Broncos and “get right” in that area of the game. It seems to happen on a weekly basis.

Before the Ravens game, all we heard was how bad Lamar Jackson was at throwing the ball. He comes to Denver, and throws for over 300 yards.

The Steelers were dead last in the league in passing yards and rushing yards per game. They play the Broncos and Big Ben rejuvenates his arm and Najee Harris has his breakout game as a running back.

You have a problem? Come play the Broncos and “get right.”

The Broncos have the Raiders coming up. They’re a team who struggles to run the ball. Their defense can’t consistently get stops. And their head coach just resigned in disgrace.

However, I’m sure they’ll get right against the Broncos. I have now designated the Denver Broncos as the “get right” team of the 2021 NFL season.
