The Denver Broncos could win the Super Bowl this year. How many other teams can say that?
They have everything they need. They have a good pass rush with Dre’Mont Jones, Randy Gregory, Bradley Chubb, and Baron Browning all rushing the passer.
Of course, they will have a great run stop too, with D.J. Jones in the middle of the defensive line. Not to mention one of the best and deepest secondary’s in the NFL led by Justin Simmons.
But the offense, now that is going to be fun to watch. Here are three offensive players on the Broncos that could have a huge game on Monday. For Now, we are going to stick with some of the basic players we all know and love.
Javonte Williams will be the bell cow running back for this team in 2022. Yes, Gordon will still get some run, but the guy doing most of the damage seems to be Williams as of right now. The former North Carolina running back is set up for a big year, and a big game.
Let’s face it, this Seahawks team is not going to be good, let alone against a team like the Broncos. They have holes everywhere, and one of the biggest is on the defensive line, where their best payer may be former Bronco Shelby Harris. Look for the Broncos to establish the run game early.
And since they are establishing the run game early, Gordon could also have a big game. I think the Broncos could very well bring in both running backs from time to time to keep the Seahawks’ defense on their toes.
Gordon and Williams complement each other very well in the backfield, which is why they both had 900 rushing yards on the exact same amount of carries in 2021. Gordon will get his chance on Monday, and because the defense is so bad, he will break off some big plays, too.
I think in this game against the Seahawks, we will see the run game set up big plays down the field, and who better than to be on the other side of those than Jerry Jeudy?
Jeudy is not only a deep threat but a speed threat, and he has shown that all camp long. He has also shown that his connection with Russell Wilson is very good so far. I think the Broncos will exploit the matchup of Jeudy vs. Tariq Woolen or Mike Jackson and send the ball downfield on some play-action plays.
Hopefully, the Seahawks let Russ cook against his former team. No matter how they win, it will be fun to watch the Broncos get one step closer to the playoffs.
