Trevor Siemian isn’t making any excuses.
After a strong start to the season, the Broncos quarterback admitted he’s been slumping and took full responsibility for his poor performance in recent games.
“When things aren’t going well, you want to make a play, you want to do something — fit a ball in, you want to make sure you don’t miss a play — and that’s when bad things happen. For me I just kind of go back to feeling the flow of the game and not trying to do too much.”
Siemian lost his starting job after Week 8 against the Chiefs before regaining it again in Week 13 against the Dolphins. Amid numerous quarterback changes and the firing of offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, Denver has dropped eight straight after entering its bye week with a 3-1 record.
The Broncos (3-9) will look to snap their skid when they host the Jets (5-7) at 4:05 p.m. ET Sunday.
Detroit on Sunday lost its toughest remaining game, in Baltimore in Week 13, to fall to 6-6, four weeks before it finishes with Green Bay. Before then Detroit has favorable games at Tampa Bay, vs. Chicago and at Cincinnati.
The bottom line is nine wins aren’t going to get it done in the NFC. The Packers were not able to move up until the Lions, who won at Lambeau earlier this season, were in position to finish one game behind.
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady opened his Saturday news conference by apologizing for lashing out at offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels on the sideline last Sunday, saying it had been bothering him all week.
