Melvin Gordon: Drew Lock is the piece that’s going to make us or break us

#When the #Broncos drafted #Drew #Lock in the second round last year, the hope was that he could be the team’s answer for a franchise quarterback.

#Through nearly two seasons, questions still remain.

#Lock is 8-9 overall as a starter, but 4-8 in 2020. #He’s completed 57.0 percent of his passes for 2,594 yards with 14 touchdowns this year. #But he and #Carson #Wentz are tied with a league-leading 15 interceptions. #Lock has also fumbled eight times, losing three.

#Head coach #Vic #Fangio mentioned during his #Wednesday press conference that he’d like to see #Lock cut down on his interceptions — acknowledging not all picks are on the QB. #But running back #Melvin #Gordon was a little more blunt in his assessment.

“We have a window for this team, and he’s the piece that’s going to make or break us,” #Gordon said, via #Aric #DiLalla of the #Broncos’ website.

#Gordon added that he’d like to see #Lock continue to try and make plays even when he makes a mistake.

“He still has a lot to learn. I see him throwing the football everyday. #He has got what it takes. #It’s the mental part of it,” #Gordon said, via #Troy #Renck of KMGH. “He just needs to believe more in himself.”

#Gordon is #Denver’s leading rusher this season, amassing 893 yards and eight touchdowns on the ground with 28 receptions for 141 yards and a touchdown through the air.

#Like they did in 2019, the #Broncos will finish their season with a #Week 17 contest against the #Raiders. #Las #Vegas’ defense ranks #No. 29 in points allowed, which could give #Lock an opportunity to leave a positive impression heading into 2021.
