Broncos still on the hunt for something, anything, to kick-start offense

From ESPN - December 7, 2017

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Denver Broncos say, despite their current eight-game losing streak that has dropped them to a 3-9 record after a 3-1 start, that they are still aggressively pursuing their first win since Oct. 1.

They believe quarterback Trevor Siemian can rebound from the roughest of outings in Sunday's 35-9 loss to the Miami Dolphins where he completed just 19 of 41 passes with three interceptions.

"Think Trev is looking forward to bouncing back," said Broncos offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave. " ... This is the week to do it for sure."

The Broncos will face the New York Jets Sunday at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Denver not only heads into the game with its worst losing streak since 1967, it is also the underdog to a team that has a 1-4 record on the road this season.

The Broncos have not won since their 16-10 victory over the Oakland Raiders to open October while Siemian has been both benched and re-inserted into the starting lineup during that span. Including the Miami game, Siemian now has three picks in each of his past two starts. He also threw three interceptions in the Oct. 30 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Siemian said this week he tried to leave the Dolphins' loss behind on Monday to get to work on the Jets.

"For a day, looked at it a couple times for a day," Siemian said. "Started watching some New York stuff pretty quickly."
