    Denver Broncos: Preview of weeks 9-17 of the 2017-2018 season

    After previewing the first half of the 2017-2018 season, the vast majority of people felt that the Broncos would enter the second half of the season with six or seven wins.

I tend to think Torrey Smith will look more like the receiver he was in Baltimore, where he averaged 53 catches, 898 yards and close to eight touchdowns, as opposed to the one we saw in San Francisco the past two seasons (average of 27 catches, 465 yards and 3.5 TDs). He joined the 49ers just as they fell into their descent. They cycled through two one-and-done head coaches in 2015 and 2016 (Jim Tomsula and Chip Kelly), rotated between Colin Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert at quarterback, and went a combined 7-25.
