In a season of instability and inconsistency, the steadiest part of the Broncos' offense has been Tim Patrick.
Vic Fangio was aggressive for most of Sunday night. But in the final six minutes, he strayed from that. In retrospect, he admitted he probably shouldn't have.
On Sunday, after throwing his fifth interception in the past five quarters, Drew Lock looked adversity in the face and quarterbacked the Broncos to an upset victory.
“We can’t start drives with negative plays. That’s first and that’s the biggest thing,” wide receiver Tim Patrick said.
Without Courtland Sutton, the Broncos are about as inexperienced as a receiving corps can be. But Jerry Jeudy and K.J. Hamler have already taken a big role in the offense. Now they're in a prime position to take off.
With an off day in sight, the Broncos brought the heat on Tuesday. But one side of the ball won the day.
Vic Fangio began Friday's practice by bringing his team together in a huddle. After a minute of Fangio addressing his team, players started to hoot and holler and get hyped for whatever message the coach was delivering.
The defense took that shot of energy and ran with it to start practice. The offense, however, didn't pick up on it one bit as they came out flat, sluggish and out of tune. The energy started to hit the offense as the practice went on.
There is little doubt that K.J. Hamler will eventually take his place among the Broncos' top three receivers. But expect Tim Patrick and DaeSean Hamilton to put up a fight.
On paper, he did just that by signing a Pro-Bowl running back, drafting an All-American receiver and selecting one of the fastest wideouts in the draft. With all of the new additions, including key pickups on the offensive line, the Broncos will have many new faces in the starting lineup.

The book on Lock is only on chapter—or even page—two. But the differences from the prolog—i.e. Drew’s college days—and where he is now are drastic. And that’s why Drew Lock’s hot start shouldn't be considered fluky anymore.
While the coaching staff and executives aren’t quite sure if Drew Lock’s ready to take the reins of the football team, the locker room has a very different perspective on the rookie.
If you think Patrick has yardage and reception totals in mind as he comes back from a hand injury, think again.
Two players who have seen their seasons defined by drops must step up if the Broncos are to find their footing without Sanders.
The trade of Emmanuel Sanders needs to be the beginning of the Broncos' moves for the future, not the end. Andrew Mason explains why.
Despite dropping a mere six points on the board on primetime in front of the entire nation on Thursday night against the Chiefs, Drew Lock will not be saving the Broncos’ offense any time soon, if at all in 2019.
With the offseason, training camp and preseason complete, building the roster is the only thing that stands between the Broncos and the regular season.
