Pro Football Network: Broncos 24, Washington 21

Ben Rolfe writes: "This is a matchup between two teams who came into the year with so much hope. Their respective seasons have fizzled out in spectacular style. Washington is on a three-game losing streak, while the Broncos have lost four straight. Denver’s offense has to gain some traction, and if it doesn’t, at least one coach should probably get fired ahead of Week 9."

Sportsnaut: Broncos 20, Washington 17

Vincent Frank writes: "Two teams that have lost a combined seven consecutive games taking on one another with pretty much their seasons on the line. Don’t expect it to be a good Halloween for Washington Mile High. There’s just too many issues for Ron Rivera’s squad right now."

Draft Kings: Washington will cover vs. Broncos in Week 8

Teddy Ricketson writes: "The Broncos got out to a three-game win streak to start the year, but it looks like it was all for naught as they have now dropped four in a row. The Broncos defense just gave up 146 rushing yards to D’Ernest Johnson, so I think Antonio Gibson has a big day here. I think this is going to be an offensive battle so I like the OVER as well as the Washington Football Team to cover."

Bryan Manning writes: "The Broncos are a lot like Washington. They have a deep, talented roster with questions at quarterback."

Fansided: Broncos 20, Washington 17

Travis Wakeman writes: "A matchup against an NFC team on Halloween greets the Broncos 10 days after their trip to Cleveland. The good thing about the short week there will be that the team gets to return home and have over a week to rest up and prepare."
