Denver Broncos: Five players who could have a big game vs. Giants
Five Denver Broncos players who could have a huge game against the New York Giants, who are 0-5 this season and hurting badly…
The Denver Broncos are a very good football team. The New York Giants are not. There’s no such thing as a sure thing in the NFL, but if the Broncos are who I think they are, Sunday night’s game against the Giants is a game that should be simply a matter of executing.
The Giants are still an NFL team, albeit a battered and broken team right now. They are hungry to get out of the ‘winless’ group and the Broncos are going to have to do everything in their power to fend them off.
Looking at the matchups, here are five players I think could be poised to have a big game for the Broncos…
5. Von Miller, Outside Linebacker
As Denver Broncos fans know all too well the struggles of an underwhelming group of pass protectors on the offensive line, New York Giants fans may have it even worse.
The Giants have been at least as bad as the Broncos in pass protection this year, if not worse in some areas, and I think that could lead to Von Miller having a huge game.
Keeping in mind the fact that Miller also has a number of milestones he can reach in this game, like moving into second all-time in Broncos history in the sack category, and I think the Super Bowl 50 MVP could be well on his way to a huge game.
Miller, whether he’s lined up on the right or left side of the defense, is going to be able to get pressure on Eli Manning, who throws the football a ton. The Giants are going to compensate for their lack of talent at the outside receiver positions with quicker passes, but in order to beat the Broncos’ defense, you’re going to have to take some deeper drops and I think on those occasions, Miller will feast.
He could have two or three sacks in this game.
