Who would have thought that two games into Von Miller’s suspension and two games without Champ Bailey, the Denver Broncos would be leading the NFL in interceptions. They have six picks through two games. Detroit and Miami, who are tied for second in the league, have four interceptions thus far.
Not only that, but the Broncos have picked off the NFL’s last two Super Bowl MVP’s multiple times in consecutive games. You have to wonder if Aaron Rodgers, XLV Super Bowl MVP, is thankful he’s not slated to play the Broncos.
Eli Manning tied a career-high with four interceptions against the Broncos. According to Chris Harris, who has two picks this season, the team was ready for that kind of performance from Manning.
“We knew from watching the Cowboy,” Harris said. “I mean look how many interceptions the Cowboys had off of tips and overthrows, so we knew that Eli… That’s what he does. There are a lot of tips and overthrows, so were getting ready for that.”
