The Denver Broncos are coming into the 2017 season with a lot of questions to be answered about their team. Who will be starting? Can they handle having one of the toughest schedules in the league? How will new head coach Vance Joseph do? There are many more, but even with the challenges that they are facing, is it possible we could see them win the AFC West division?
The Oakland Raiders are the favorites to win the division with their talent loaded roster, but the Broncos could shock everyone and take the division. The Raiders may have the better team on paper but we will see who really is better once the season starts.

One of the Broncos biggest tasks to win the division is win in the divisional games against the Raiders, Chargers and Chiefs. The Chargers and Chiefs will be physical games, but the Broncos could easily win both games if they don’t make mistakes and give away points.
The Raiders on the other hand are on the rise with a young offense with play makers everywhere and a defense that loves to hit and make offenses’ pay the price. The Broncos have the same potential team with a defense lead by arguably the best defensive player in the league, Von Miller, and an offense that is young but shows promise.
What are the chances of the Broncos being crowned as division champions?
The Broncos have a better chance than people are giving them. Yes, they still need to figure out who will be starting at quarterback but with the talent that is around the quarterback, this team can go far. The Raiders will be the biggest opponent for them, but no team is unbeatable.
