#3- Broncos Defense will record 30+ sacks
One thing that I am really excited for this season is the Denver Broncos defense. They looked really good during the preseason. The team recorded 20 sacks during the four game preseason, which is quite a remarkable feat.
For this prediction, I will take the 20 sacks that they had and raise them ten more. The Broncos defense as a whole will record 30 or more sacks this season. The majority of those sacks will belong to Von Miller and Demarcus Ware, but I believe Shane Ray and Shaquil Barrett will record at least 5-7 each.
That maybe a stretch for two players who will not see the field a whole lot, but that is how these predictions can go. I am going to enjoy this defense causing havoc on the opposing offenses, especially the quarterback.
