It has been a season in which the unexpected has become the norm, the unthinkable has come to pass time and time again.
After five games, the Broncos were 1-4. Now, they are in the playoffs for the first time in six years.
And when you figure whatever it is you figure, let me know what you figured. Because I have no idea what has gone on this year and what will happen against the Steelers on Sunday.
Last Sunday after the loss to the Chiefs, I must say I was somewhat conflicted. As glad as I was to see the Broncos make it back to the playoffs, I was equally disappointed at how they got there. While I believe the NFL is a bottom-line business—and the Broncos’ bottom line is a playoff berth—the conversation about how they are playing is still a legitimate one to have.
Somehow, the Broncos have to find a way to put it back together against the rough-and-tumble Steelers, who certainly won’t be without their own issues when they arrive in the Mile High City.
I’m trying to decide what I think is going to happen. It seems like no one is expecting the Broncos to win, let alone keep the game close. There is a big part of me that agrees with this.
There is also a part of me that knows full well that this season has been about the unexpected. It has been about making something out of seemingly nothing. It has been about showing everyone who thinks they know something that they really don’t know much of anything.
I have no idea what is going to happen on Sunday. Profound, I know. I want to know what I think will happen. But I simply don’t.
I do know that I am eagerly awaiting the next chapter in a season to remember.
Can the Broncos advance? Will they? Let me know what you think of Sunday’s playoff game against Pittsburgh. Thanks for reading and sharing.
