This man has been a solid contributor to the Broncos offense when his name has been called upon. Who can forget his touchdown run to end the game against the New England Patriots.
Since then, he has struggled with injuries. There is a good chance he will be fully healed for this game, so I look forward to him to bounce back.
While the Bengals are 8th in run defense, Anderson always finds a way to execute no matter what defense is on the field.
As long as he can stay healthy for the entire 60 minutes, he should have a good game.
Normally, I do an offensive and defensive player for the X-Factors for the preview. However, I think this game will speak volumes on the future of the Denver Broncos and Brock Osweiler.
In Pittsburgh, he made full use of the throwing arm and his legs to do some damage in the first half. However, he struggled in the second half and could not get anything going.
Osweiler needs to focus on looking at the second and third option when it comes to throwing the ball. If the options are not there, either take off and run if there is a lane or throw the ball away. No more sacks.
Getting off to a hot start is a good thing, but playing an entire 60 minute game is a perfect thing. The completion percentage of Osweiler in the first and second halves is truly like a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde reading.
