In any sport, players have their arrive game and Denver Broncos Bradley Chubb happened to see it unfold against the Los Angeles Rams yesterday.
The fifth overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft, Denver Broncos defensive end Bradley Chubb, busted out onto the scene versus the Los Angeles Rams on a cold Sunday.
He stayed warm throughout the game like he was playing NBA Jam. Chubb was on fire.
The Rams offensive line is pretty good and Chubb threw veteran left tackle Andrew Whitworth around like a “sack” of potatoes, at least on a couple of plays. This performance is something the Broncos have been waiting for since his arrival in April.
As a whole, the defense didn’t play too bad. In fact, they held the “Greatest Show on Turf 2.0” to under 30 points, an achievement in itself. The secondary held its own about as well as a team could on defense.
This is a testament to how well Chubb and Von Miller played. When the Broncos reached the Super Bowl it was because of their depth in the pass rush department. Chubb’s presence in the game was mainly as an edge rusher.
The former North Carolina State Wolfpack standout dominated in the running game and pressuring the quarterback. Chubb was very effective and efficient on Sunday. His three sacks really affected Jared Goff.
When he appeared in the backfield, he did damage. Chubb’s presence also benefited Miller.
In case you missed the game or want to see it again here are some highlights for you.
It was the first time the Denver Broncos saw high-level production from both of their star pass rushers.
The dynamic duo combined for 4.5 sacks, 4.5 tackles for loss and five hits. It was the first but certainly not the last time these two will terrorize an opposing quarterback in the same game. There will be more in the future and the Broncos are smiling ear-to-ear after the performance by Bradley Chubb.
