2. How to stop the Broncos’ offense?

Stopping the Broncos’ offense was pretty simple last season, and Vance Joseph identified that here. Stop Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders — or make life hard for them in general — and the Broncos really had no answers.

They couldn’t run the football effectively, and didn’t have a true third option in the passing game with Jordan Norwood’s struggles, and the inconsistency/injury problems at tight end.

That should change by the end of the month, as the Broncos are expected to reload their offensive weaponry in the draft.

If they can get a couple of playmakers that can impact the offense right away, it will help everyone involved in the offense. The talent of Sanders and Thomas can’t be wasted and the Broncos obviously know that.
