The chance is there for Hillman to shut up all of his critics.

The starting running back job is his – but can he hold on to it?

I’m curious to see if Hillman rises to the occasion and shows his coaches that their faith is warranted. Or will he fumble the chance as he has at key times in the past?

We and the Broncos will learn a lot about the make up and character of Hillman after Sunday’s game.
