Denver Broncos Week 10 NFL Power Rankings Roundup

Throughout the 2023 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Below you will find a Week 10 roundup for the Denver Broncos in our consensus 2023 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 27

Non-QB MVP: CB Pat Surtain II

Surtain consistently shows the impact he can have on a game. Other than a rare lapse when Surtain allowed the Jets' Robbie Chosen to get behind him for a 68-yard touchdown in Week 5, he has been every bit the All-Pro he's expected to be. The touchdown is the only completion longer than 20 yards that he has surrendered all season. -- Jeff Legwold -- Rank: 24

Two wins before the Week 9 bye have changed the Broncos' vector dramatically, and that's thanks largely to the defense. Yes, the same unit that was humiliated by the Dolphins. The same group that gave up 28 and 31 points to the Bears and Jets, respectively. Since then, though, Denver allowed the Chiefs to score 28 points in eight quarters and held the Packers to 17 in four. There have been personnel changes in the secondary and up front, with Fabian Moreau, Ja'Quan McMillian, Jonathon Cooper and Nik Bonitto thriving in expanded roles, and multiple injured players returning after missing the toughest stretches of the season. Could the Broncos go to Buffalo and give a suddenly struggling Bills team some fits next Monday? You can't rule it out.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 26

They come off their bye with a tough road game against the Bills. They looked good In beating the Chiefs before the bye, but this is another brutal test.

USA Today -- Rank: 25

Quiet at the trade deadline, time to find out if they overvalued their players ... or might go on a run with them after winning the last two games.

The Athletic -- Rank: 27

Report card: D-plus

Denver traded three players, three first-round draft picks and three second-round draft picks to acquire Russell Wilson and Sean Payton. For all that, the Broncos are 26th in the league in point differential (minus-54). Wilson, at least, has made strides from his disastrous first season in Denver. He has 16 touchdowns versus four interceptions, is fifth in the league in passer rating (101.7) and has the second-lowest off-target percentage among starters (6.9 percent).

FOX -- Rank: 24

The league office sure seems to have done a good job setting teams up with a big test coming out of the bye week. Fresh from the week off, the Broncos' next test after beating the Chiefs is a national TV game against the reeling Bills.

Yahoo! -- Rank: 24

It was odd the Broncos didn't make any moves at the trade deadline. Perhaps they think they're a playoff contender, or they didn't get a reasonable offer for someone like Jerry Jeudy. It's fine for head coach Sean Payton to look at a team coming off a win over the Chiefs and want to see how it progresses. It's hard to see Denver being in playoff contention, though we'll see.

PFT -- Rank: 23

Beat the Bills, and maybe they can make a playoff push.
