A Step In the Right Direction
Well we won, and looked fairly decent doing it. I am just glad that the defense played the way it was meant to. Dre Bly
finally came up with a big turnover after two horrible performances against Green Bay and Detroit. His pick really turned the game around for Denver and was the spark for the 14-0 run Denver went on at the beginning of the second half. Though the Broncos looked good in the second half, they were pathetic in the first half. What happened to the team that would score on their first drive and then pound the opposition with the run game. Luckily we were able to take a quick second half lead and pound the Chiefs with our run game. This game puts us only one game behind the Chargers who barely beat a Colts team that was trying to lose. http://www.nfl.com/standings
Next week the Broncos face a tough Tennesse team fresh off a loss. This game is key to the Broncos getting back to .500 and maybe taking the division lead if the Chargers lose to the Jags. Anyhow I feel Denver has a favorable match-up this week against the Titans. Our pass rush is notoriously weak, but that wont matter against Vince Young. As long as the front 7 shutdown the run the cornerbacks will have no problem forcing interceptions against Vince Young. The offense will undoubtly struggle, but with a wuick score they should be able to play pound the ball. This will leave the defense fresh, and the Titans scrambling. Oh yeah that was our first victory by more than 3 points.
