As dominant as Terrance Knighton was a year ago, and as much as he improved over the course of the season, it’s important to note that rookie Sylvester Williams came in after Kevin Vickerson was injured and had some really big games for the Broncos down the stretch, including a monster five tackle, three tackle for loss, one sack game against Houston.
I remembered that I have the Houston game queued up in my DVR, so I flipped it on to see what was up. Here’s something I came across that you might find interesting.
Go ahead and give that a couple of looks. Williams is playing right DT in this situation and makes #60 on Houston look like a big 7’0″ European big man in basketball getting dunked on by LeBron James.
OK, maybe not to that extreme, but you get the idea.
Chad wrote about how Williams could establish himself this year as one of the best defensive tackles in the league, and there’s some evidence right there of just what this big man is capable of doing.
This game also features some really nice TFLs by Knighton and Malik Jackson, and a huge hit by Nate Irving. Here’s that:
It was almost tough watching some of this game with Eric Decker and Knowshon Moreno still playing critical roles in the offense. It got me ready for some Broncos football though, that’s for darn sure.
