We now enter the mid-way point of the NFL season and the Denver Broncos are struggling on offense. It might continue at New Orleans.
The Denver Broncos offense is struggling mightily the past few games, which appears troublesome due to the opponents they faced. In a critical matchup squaring off against the Oakland Raiders, the offense was predictable. On paper, the Broncos needed to expose the weaknesses of the Raiders’ defense, which posted the 30th best defense in the NFL. The Broncos scored 20 points, but it took the entire game.
Fast forward to the New Orleans Saints matchup, where the hope is the Broncos learned from the primetime matchup to score more points against Drew Brees. Head coach Gary Kubiak must instill the running attack, and he needs to utilize the tight ends and wide receivers on offense.
This starts with Devontae Booker and the offensive line that must hunt starting from the first series. Whether it is against the run or in passing, New Orleans posts one of the worst overall defenses in the NFL. Kubiak needs to move away from the aerial attack to the rushing force he is known for as an offensive guru.
The Broncos offense could be the biggest question mark this weekend, but the No Fly Zone needs to turn the page from the Black Hole in Oakland to shut down Brees and Mark Ingram. It is the responsibility of the Orange Rush and defensive line to neutralize Ingram. Ingram is seeing Alabama Crimson Tide resurgence in 2016 and is licking his chops after Lavtavius Murray ran wild on the Denver line last Sunday.
Week 10 bold predictions are officially a go.
