Stop celebrating victories over Washington and Dallas and don’t look forward to planning next week’s holidays.
To sum it up, Wednesday was a message from Broncos safety Justin Simmons and quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.
The Broncos would be sent to a bye at 6-4 after beating Philadelphia (3-6) on Sunday; Lost to Eagles and Broncos were back at .500.
Simmons said, “Just as you can’t get caught up in a loss and what people are saying, it’s the same thing – you can’t get caught up in a win and people have your back.” “It’s a good line going 1-0 week after week. It’s going to be a really good test for our team. We have to empty the tank over the next five days and bye (at) 6-4 Gotta hit. That’s what’s important.”
Bridgewater said the tune-out-the-noise approach during the Broncos’ four-game losing skid also applies during its current two-game winning streak.
“When you take the cheese and you believe all things being said, it can blow your head and you think you’ve come and we learned a big lesson at the start of the season,” he said. . “We have to make sure we’re locked in and prepare like we did in the last two weeks.”
