The Denver Broncos are set to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars in week 2, and have a chance to start the year 2-0 with another strong performance.

The scheduling gods have given the Denver Broncos a very winnable first three games.  After beating the New York Giants, the team is set to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars in week 2.

The Jaguars got blown out by the lowly Houston Texans, so the Broncos should make easy work of Trevor Lawrence and Urban Meyer.

With the Jaguars’ young offense and poor offensive line, the defense should feast.  Vic Fangio also has had great success against rookie quarterbacks as well.

Furthermore, the Broncos were able to score 27 points against the strong Giants defense, so they should have a good day against the poor Jaguars’ defense.

Week 2 is setting up to be another convincing win for Denver if all goes the way it should.

With that said, I’d like to make some bold predictions for the Denver Broncos Week 2 matchup

Denver Broncos Bold Predictions for Week 2

1. Denver Broncos score a defensive touchdown

Trevor Lawrence was picked off three times in his first NFL start against the Houston Texans.  The Texans are really bad, so I don’t think is farfetched to think the Denver Broncos’ defense can score a defensive touchdown.

A pick-6 seems most likely here, especially with the Broncos’ lethal secondary.

Trevor Lawrence threw the ball fifty-one times against the Texans.  We can infer that since the Jaguars were trailing most of the game, they had to abandon their game plan and turn to an aerial attack to try and keep up.

Given that I think the Broncos will jump out to a quick lead here, the Jaguars may be forced to play catchup again, and that should only help the secondary.

As I said, the Texans are really bad, so that wasn’t even close to the defensive firepower the Broncos have.

I am expecting another bad performance from Lawrence, and the Broncos should look to rack up some easy turnovers against a bad Jaguars team.

A defensive touchdown, namely a pick-6, would be perfect in this game.
