“I feel much better about our red-zone offense than I did last year early in the season,” Broncos coach Vic Fangio says. He has plenty of reasons to feel that way -- including Teddy Bridgewater's high level of red-zone efficiency.

By Tuesday afternoon, George Paton and Vic Fangio must narrow down the Broncos' roster from 80 players to the final 53.
Here's who is projected to make the final roster.
Teddy Bridgewater, not Drew Lock, had the highest highs and the lowest lows during Wednesday’s practice.
With the QB competition potentially coming to an end soon, did the rollercoaster day help or hurt Teddy’s quest to becoming the starter?
On Friday, inaccurate was the word of the day for the Broncos' quarterbacks.
One quarterback flipped that on its head in nearly the best possible way 24 hours later during Saturday's practice.
The past few practices, Drew Lock’s lost the “gunslinger” to his game, while Teddy Bridgewater has tried to shake being “Mr. Checkdown.”

Teddy Bridgewater & Drew Lock had nearly identical practices on Wednesday.

Drew Lock and Teddy Bridgewater didn't let that happen on Wednesday.

If Drew Lock had more days like the one he had Tuesday, it might never have been necessary for the Broncos to trade for Teddy Bridgewater.
There are myriad consequences to having questions at quarterback. The least of these is the types of questions -- and responses -- that take place in press conferences.
Noah Fant's had a mighty fine start to his NFL career, to say the least.
But Fant wants more. And he knows what he need to do to be among the best in the league.
George Paton could have an opportunity to take Denver’s tight end room to the moon and beyond in the first round if Kyle Pitts falls to No. 9.
If Pitts is available, should the Broncos take him?
Noah Fant showed his toughness by playing through an ankle injury for most of the season. Now he wants to show that his production can be elite for an entire year.
It certainly wouldn't be a surprise if 2020 is the first of many Pro Bowl selections for Bradley Chubb and Justin Simmons. But who will be the Broncos' next Pro Bowler?

In the offseason, John Elway clearly made it a top priority to give his second-year quarterback as many weapons as possible to succeed.
