Ravens vs. Broncos: 6 questions with Predominantly Orange
CS: The Broncos are 2-0 after two close calls. How good is this team?
TW: I believe this team has a lot of potential. There are going to be some mistakes until this team begins to gel together. However, the defense could once again make all the difference.
What has impressed me the most is how the running game has looked. Denver might have a true two back system in Royce Freeman and Phillip Lindsay. If those two continue to become a big part of this offense, I can see them making a lot of noise and making a difference.
2. What is the Broncos biggest strength? How does it match up with the Ravens?
TW: On offense, I would say the running game. The two rookie running backs are really start to make a difference. It did not take long for both to score their first NFL touchdowns. The fact that they can gain some yards after contact is helpful too.
On defense, it must be the pass rush. Having Von Miller and Bradley Chubb back there really puts pressure on the offensive line. Shaquil Barrett can make a difference as well.
I have not seen enough of Baltimore’s offensive and defensive front seven to really see how it matches up. But the Ravens defense might be the toughest one Denver has faced so far. If the Broncos pass rushers can exploit the weakness of the Ravens offensive line, they will have a field day.
