The Denver Broncos have had what was perhaps their best game of the season on Sunday night. The Broncos offense finally awoken and the defense kept Aaron Rodgers in check as the Broncos defeated the Packers 29-10 under the lights on Sunday Night Football.
This was the most impressive win of the season for the Broncos. Peyton Manning looked great during the game minus the garbage time interception. The Broncos are 7-0 for the first time since the 1998 season. And we all know how that season ended.
The running game has found its groove and was firing on all cylinders for the game. C.J. Anderson and Ronnie Hillman combined for all three touchdowns for the Broncos offense. And it was great that the Broncos did not have to rely on the defense to win the game.
Another huge improvement was the involvement of the tight end position. Owen Daniels and Virgil Green set the tone for the game early on for the Broncos and the running attack finished it off with their help in the run game.
One player that really impressed me was Michael Schofield. He helped set the tone for the running game. I think the Broncos have found their right tackle for the remainder of the season. After sitting out the entire 2014 season, Schofield might have found a spot on the starting lineup.
Another big moment of the game was Demaryius Thomas breaking out. He recorded 168 yards receiving on eight receptions. It was his best game of the season. And he appeared to catch everything that came his way.
This was perhaps the most complete game win for the Broncos in a long time. Offense was amazing, defense held the Packers to ten points. Even though the Broncos defense could not force a turnover, they did enough to keep the Packers in check. They held Rodgers to 77 yards passing the entire game. Quite a phenomenal performance.
The team travel to Indianapolis to face the Colts next week. The team will be looking to avenge the divisional round loss last season.
