    It looked like this season might be headed in the same direction. The Broncos won their first two games and then lost six of seven heading into their bye week. The two weeks since the bye have seen the team deviate from the path they followed last season Dennis Smith Jersey , however.The Broncos beat the Chargers on the road in Week 11 and then came home to beat the Steelers last Sunday to stabilize their record and start some people talking about the possibility of making a playoff run. Head coach Vance Joseph tried to slow down that talk this week.“We’re 5-6; that’s it,” Joseph said, via the Denver Post. “We’ve done nothing up to this point. If we don’t win Sunday, we’re 5-7 — that’s ugly.”A win on Sunday in Cincinnati against a 5-6 Bengals team that just lost its quarterback would likely spur even more talk about where the Broncos can go this year because the 49ers, Browns and Raiders follow the Bengals on the schedule. Beating those teams may not qualify as doing something, but it could put the team in position to do so with another win over the Chargers to close the regular season. Good morning, Broncos Country!A week ago Chris Harris Jr. was calling on his coaches to give the defense more disguised looks and a more aggressive game plan.They listened, and the Broncos held the Chiefs to under 30 - their fewest points so far this season.But the Broncos’ defense let the Chiefs back in the game in the fourth quarter as Patrick Mahomes engineered two sustained touchdown drives to pull ahead in the final two minutes.The problem wasn’t the game plan this time, Harris Jr. acknowledged. It was that Mahomes was a magician.In any game, corners figure there will be a couple time where the opposing quarterback will extend the play scrambling before finding an open receiver. Having to keep up with a receiver for those few extra seconds as they change their routes is no small task and wears out a secondary.“You think those things are going to happen probably like twice a game or whatever, you might have to cover longer. But with Mahomes Terrell Davis Color Rush Jersey , it happened probably 20 times that game. That never happens,” Harris Jr. said, admitting it definitely wore out the defense. “I don’t want to make any excuse, but I think that really took a lot out of us—having to cover that long on so many plays.”Harris Jr. ended up getting two IVs of fluids to fight his leg cramps, adding that is the worst he’s felt in a game.“I was just fighting through it. I pride myself on being in great shape, being able to finish the game and get stronger in the fourth quarter. This game, I couldn’t. I was just done,” he said.But the corner praised his coach for the game plan - an improvement over last week’s approach - and added the key was playing tougher at the end.“The game plan was great, they definitely listened to everything I said,” Harris Jr. laughed.So the key to beating the Jets on the road this week is not just setting the tone early - as they did against the Ravens - but sustaining that tone and playing mistake-free.“We can’t beat ourselves - play smart football on the road, disciplined football , and we should have a great chance to win,” said No. 25, adding that this year’s team isn’t just built better to win on the road - strong defense, strong ground game - it’s just better period.“We’re mentally tough,” he said. “Every game has been a dogfight. We’ve been right there. Just a couple plays, just a couple little minor details, things we can fix and we’re going to be alright.”Coach Vance Joseph also pointed out the Broncos’ M.O. is good for winning road games; it just has to do it.“I think our team is built to win road games,” he said, pointing out the 5.6 yards per carry average with the run a
