The Denver Broncos will face Jadeveon Clowney in Week 1
With just days left until the kickoff of the 2020 NFL season, defensive star Jadeveon Clowney has finally found a new home in the NFL.
In dramatic fashion, Jadeveon Clowney waited last minute to make his announcement of his decision, which, according to sources, came down between the New Orleans Saints and the Tennessee Titans.
It looks as if the Tennessee Titans have won the Clowney sweepstakes, and now, the Denver Broncos will need to go to the drawing board and make some adjustments to prepare for the impact that Clowney will provide once he officially joins the team.
Although the Broncos emerged as slight favorites in this contest, this could cause the betting line to slip slightly.
Aside from the betting line, how does Clowney joining the Titans impact the Broncos in their game preparation for Week 1?
Well, one obvious reason is just how good Clowney is. The first overall pick in 2014 has maybe not wowed with his statistics, but it is likely that he just needed to find the right fit for his style of play, and Clowney will fit right in with Mike Vrabel and his system.

Clowney will give an already stout Titans defense a tremendous boost, and suddenly, the Broncos may have to fight much harder to get a win in Week 1.
Another thing that Clowney will bring to the Broncos is a big test. Containing Clowney will be a tall order for the Broncos’ offensive line, and if they are able to contain him, it could completely change the narrative and perception that has followed the Broncos’ offensive line for years.
The Week 1 matchup between the Broncos and the Titans should be a good one, with both teams predicted by most outlets to make a playoff appearance, and both of these teams want to get into the win column early on to kickstart their playoff bids.
Clowney could be a vital piece for the Titans in the season to come, but let’s hope that the Broncos’ offensive line keeps him a non-factor in Week 1, at least.
