24. Denver Broncos (5-9)
Recap: The Drew Lock hype train came to a screeching halt in Week 15, mostly due to the weather. The Chiefs and Broncos were playing on a snow-filled field, and Denver was only able to muster up three points in the losing effort.
Outlook: You can’t put too much stock into this bad showing by Lock and the Broncos’ offense. Based on what we’ve seen over his first three starts, there is plenty of reasons for optimism for the rookie signal-caller. With the Broncos looking ahead to the future, they’ll meet the the Lions at home in Week 16.
23. Jacksonville Jaguars (5-9)
Recap: For a team that has looked as dead as the Jaguars coming into Week 15, it’s astonishing they were able to overcome a 13-point deficit in the second half to grab a win over the Raiders. Jacksonville scored 17 unanswered points in the final two quarters to earn a victory over Oakland.
Outlook: There’s no question this season has been a total failure for the Jags, and there are a lot of tough decisions to be made about the head coach, front office and quarterback. A report on Sunday morning stated that major changes are afoot for this organization, as there should be. The Jags will hit the road to take on the Falcons in Week 16.
