Stop The Run Game
First and foremost, Denver must stop Indy’s rushing attack. The Colts will use a combination of Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw to soften up the Broncos defensive front so they’re able to create more opportunities for themselves through the air.
Denver has a very stout and formidable front seven, so if they’re able to nullify the run game all hell could break loose. They’ll sic their fierce pass-rushers, like Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware, on Luck. An opportunistic secondary will be lurking, consisting of guys like of Aqib Talib, T.J. Ward and injury returnee Chris Harris Jr.
The Broncos will be licking their chops on defense come Sunday night if they can limit the Colts on the ground.
