Broncos coach Vic Fangio says the team will ‘eventually get it done’
The Denver Broncos have been involved in a lot of close losses this season, but head coach Vic Fangio still has faith the team will eventually get over the hump and get wins in similar situations.
The Broncos were up 20-0 heading into halftime against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. In the second half, the offense went cold scoring only three points and the defense was exposed giving up 27 points. They had a chance to score a touchdown at the end to win the game but were stopped short.
Fangio knows at some point the luck will have to go in their favor, and with as hard as the players are working, it will happen soon.
“I think we’re close, obviously, as you alluded to. But we haven’t gotten over the top well enough yet,” Fangio said, via Nicki Jhabvala of TheAthletic.com. “We did in our previous game with the stop and then the ensuing first down to close it, but this game, we didn’t get it done. We’ll eventually get it done. These guys are good guys. They’re working their butts off. They enjoy coming to work. They like playing. We’ll just keep grinding and keep pounding, and eventually, we’ll get through.”
The bad news for the Broncos is their road doesn’t get any easier going forward. To close out the season, they will face the Buffalo Bills, Los Angeles Chargers, Houston Texans, Kansas City Chiefs, Detroit Lions, and Oakland Raiders.
None of those games are going to be easy, so the team must make the right changes to get some late wins to close out their season.
