The unsung hero of the Denver defense.

Marshall has been phenomenal in stepping in and replacing the injured Danny Trevathan. When Trevathan does come back, Marshall has forced Jack Del Rio and the defensive coaches to keep him on the field.

The numbers never lie.

Marshall is eighth in the NFL with 100 tackles. He’s made sure the defense is in the right spots when the plays are called.

Marshall should get elected to the Prow Bowl. Of course, he won’t be able to play because he will be busy, but still.

It’s been impressive how he’s stepped up like he has and helped the Broncos not miss a beat without a great player on the field. And he’s doing so after being on the practice squad last season.

As with Anderson, Marshall has taken the Foxism, “Next man up” and given it life.

What kind of game will he have against Orton and the Bills offense?

The hope is he continues to fly around and make plays as he has all season long.
