How the Denver Broncos defense can stop their AFC West rivals
The Denver Broncos shored up plenty of holes on a defense that already ranked in the top ten. The objective this offseason was to bring in fits with Vic Fangio’s Cover 2/Cover 4 scheme.
A few weeks ago I examined ways the Broncos could attack their division foes on offense, now it is time to examine potential strategies on how the defense can stop their AFC West opponents.
To improve on their finish from a season ago the Broncos defense must have good health and create more turnovers than their 25th ranked effort in 2019.
With the additions of defensive linemen Jurrell Casey, cornerback A.J. Bouye, along with the improved health of Bradley Chubb and Bryce Callahan, the Broncos brass feels confident in the talent to compete with the high flying offenses in the AFC West.
Having versatile players creates opportunities to match up oppositional personnel groupings, creating better matchups for Vic Fangio to slow down and even stymie the opposition.
Taking a look at the AFC West, the Broncos can take advantage of their diverse personnel to slow down each team a bit differently.
