Denver Broncos: Week 3 NFL Power Rankings (#10)

Last week: 9 (-1)

Record: 1-1

I have a feeling the Broncos are going to be one of those teams with big home/road disparities in their records this season. They have a huge advantage at home, running the no huddle against defenses not used to playing in the thin air, but on the road, not only do they not have that advantage, but in noisy atmospheres like Atlanta last week, it’s tough to communicate your signals on audibles at the line. Expect something like 7-1 or 8-0 at home and 3-5 or 4-4 on the road. The biggest test to their home dominance might come this week as they head home to face Houston.
