#2- Defense

We all know the saying that Defense Wins Championships. That was made apparent in Super Bowl 48, and I believe it will make the difference in this game as well.

The Broncos defense has thrived all season in making some huge plays. From 52 sacks on the season, to some defensive touchdowns early on in the season, to just disrupting the quarterback. This defense can really do it all.

Wade Phillips has done a tremendous job in turning this unit into one of the most feared ones in the league. It is just amazing how much work they have put in just a short amount of time. And now, this team is one game away from cementing something of sheer greatness.

When you have players like Von Miller, Demarcus Ware, Aqib Talib, Chris Harris Jr., Brandon Marshall, T.J. Ward, and Darian Stewart to name a few, it truly is quite an awesome thing to see all of these men making play after play to help the offense out and to prove that they are the new incarnation of the Orange Crush Defense.

This unit is No. 1 overall for a good reason and they excel at what they do, and I think that they do whatever they can to take Cam Newton and company on their heels for the entire game.
