Both teams have been eliminated from the playoffs https://www.broncoslocker...-lindsay-jersey , both coaches face questions about their futures and players from both teams are fighting to keep jobs. No, it’s not how the Broncos or Colts envisioned this season playing out. But neither intends to use their plight as an excuse to look beyond this season. Instead, they intend to finish strong when the stretch run begins Thursday night. ”You approach it to win a game. It’s what we do, it’s what our jobs are,” Colts left tackle Anthony Castonzo said. ”There’s really no need for any extra motivation. We’re here to win games every week.” It’s a strange spot for a couple of teams that were playoff regulars and Super Bowl contenders not so long ago. The obstacles they’ve faced have been daunting. Indy (3-10) will miss the postseason for the third straight season largely because injuries have forced Andrew Luck to miss 23 of the past 42 games including every game this season and it took time for a rebuilt defense to get in sync. Denver’s offense has struggled as it continues searching for a long-term successor to Peyton Manning, and the Broncos’ special teams units have been equally bad. But Thursday’s game gives each team one more chance to show everyone they can start turning things around. ”I told our guys there’s going to be one football game on in the entire world,” first-year Denver coach Vance Joseph said. ”It’s going to be our game. We’re excited about having a chance to win two games in five days for us, so we’re going to embrace this thing. We’re coming to play and have some fun.” What can still be achieved? While the Broncos (4-9) are assured of their first losing season since 2010, they ended an eight-game losing streak with last week’s victory over the Jets and hope to snap an eight-game road skid this week. Indy needs to win each of its last two home games to avoid its first losing season at home since coach Chuck Pagano took over in 2012 and perhaps save his job a third time. And besides, there’s nothing quite like winning. ”We sign up to play these games and to win games, so the effort is still there,” Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri said. ”I think that’s one thing that I’m the most proud of with this team is they continue to fight through tough situations and bad outcomes and stuff like that, so I’m expecting the same for the last three games. We’re going to try to win them all.” Here are some other things to watch Thursday: BLUES BROTHERS Attendance at Lucas Oil Stadium has steadily dwindled this season. This week, there will be plenty of blue around. Colts players also will participate by using the all-blue ”color rush” uniforms for the first time. Because they played on Thanksgiving night last year, a game not considered part of the regular Thursday Night Football series, Indy opted to wear its regular uniforms. ”That’ll definitely be cool,” rookie cornerback Quincy Wilson said. ”All blue is going to look real nice out there so ready to make some plays in that all-blue.” DENVER’S DEFENSE One thing that hasn’t changed in Denver is the defense. The Broncos are still rated No. 1 overall and in the top three against the run and against the pass. This week, they could be feasting on sacks. Indy has allowed a league-high 52 sacks, 10 short of the franchise’s single-season record, including 30 in six games against top-10 defenses. THE VETERANS Every week, it seems Vinatieri, Frank Gore or both achieve new milestones. It could happen again this week. The 34-year-old Gore needs 59 yards from scrimmage to reach the 1,000-yard mark for the 12th consecutive season. Emmitt Smith is the only other player to achieve the feat, doing it a league record 13 times. Gore also needs to average 92 yards rushing per game over the final three to pass Curtis Martin (14 Phillip Lindsay Jersey White ,101 yards) for No. 4 on the career rushing list. The 44-year-old Vinatieri, meanwhile, is 16 points away from extending his own league record of 100-point seasons to 20. HOMECOMING Denver defensive end Zach Kerr got his first NFL chance in Indianapolis. When the new management team arrived during the offseason, his days were numbered. Kerr signed with Denver in free agency and has had a solid season as he heads into his first game against his former team. It won’t be an easy reunion for Kerr. ”Obviously it’s going to be emotional,” Kerr said. ”I was undrafted and made a team, all that stuff. At the end of the day, business is business, and it’s just another game.” — Instead of panicking like they were the New York Giants, the Denver Broncos patiently waited for Drew Lock to fall into the second round."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Broncos NewsBroncos 2019 Draft ClassBroncos PodcastsBroncos 2019 ScheduleKey Offseason DatesCommunity RulesFull ArchiveBroncos StoriesScheduleRosterStatsOdds Shop About Masthead Community Guidelines StubHub ✕Denver Broncos NewsDenver Broncos 2019 DraftSB Nation: Waiting on Drew Lock was the Broncos one A+ moveNew,130commentsInstead of panicking like they were the New York Giants, the Denver Broncos patiently waited for Drew Lock to fall into the second round. SB Nation: Waiting on Drew Lock was the Broncos one A+ moveBrian Spurlock-USA TODAY SportsFor the Denver Broncos, the entire football world seemed to know John Elway was enamored with Missouri quarterback Drew Lock very early on in the 2019 NFL Draft process. It was no surprise that a majority of pre-draft mocks had the Broncos selecting Lock with their 10th overall pick as it was widely seen that he was a first round talent at the sports most important position. Instead, Denver traded back in the first round with Lock on the board despite two quarterbacks being taken already. Then with a third quarterback taken by Washington, the Broncos decided to go with their board and take Iowa tight end Noah Fant. In the process, Elway secured another second round pick - the one he intended all along to use on Lock if the opportunity arose. Then Day 2 began. With the 41st pick, Denver again passed on Lock for offensive guard Dalton Risner. From there, word apparently got into the Broncos war room that the Green Bay Packers were looking to take a flyer on Lock with their second round pick. That was when Elway pounced. He packaged a couple of late round picks to move up from the 52nd spot to the 42nd spot to take Drew Lock.SB Nation’s Dan Kadar in his post-draft one A+ move each team made on draft weekend, he noted that this entire sequence of events was Elway’s shining moment on draft weekend. I would have to agree with every part of that assessment. While Lock may well end up being a franchise talent, there are red flags. However, Elway had learned his lesson ignoring those red flags with first round picks with Paxton Lynch and, instead, played the value pick game and won big.Horse TracksNFL News
