Following the Denver Broncos disastrous 28-10 home defeat to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the team finds itself winless, listless and searching for answers. The revolving door at quarterback has returned to haunt the Broncos with Drew Lock’s shoulder injury forcing the team to turn next to Jeff Driskel, which was followed by Brett Rypien.

And it could lead to Blake Bortles starting on Thursday Night Football at MetLife Stadium.

Driskel’s inability to hold onto the starting job for even a full game was the result of poor decision-making, holding onto the ball for far too long, plus equal parts of woeful blocking upfront. In the seven quarters of play since Lock left the lineup, the Broncos backups have been sacked a total of 12 times — hardly a recipe for NFL success.

“I think a lot of it kind of comes down to team protection stuff and we need to, we just need to pass up off these games better, these twists, these stunts,” Glasgow said on Sunday following Week 3’s loss. “We’ve had a tough couple of weeks here in regards to the amount of blitzes and the type of blitzes we’ve been getting.”
