Denver Broncos: 3 Things to look for against Jaguars
2. Denver Broncos Defensive Performance
The Denver Broncos defense is due for a huge game.
They played well against the Giants but lacked the big, splash plays. Sure, the defense doesn’t need to make the splash plays to win every week, but they certainly help and are a great morale booster.
The Jaguars’ offensive line is bad, and Trevor Lawrence just threw three interceptions against the Texans.
With Bradley Chubb likely to return to the lineup, the pass rush will have a great opportunity to create pressure all game long.
Head Coach Vic Fangio also has an 18-9 record against rookie quarterbacks in his career, which is promising for the Broncos defensive performance as well.
The Jaguars don’t exactly have threatening skill players, either. DJ Chark is a good receiver but doesn’t exactly scare defenses.
James Robinson is one of their running backs who rushed for over 1,000 yards last year, but he only saw 5 carries in their week 1 game.
With the Jaguars getting thoroughly embarrassed by a bad Texans team and seeing their dysfunctionality with Urban Meyer as head coach, I think the Denver Broncos defense should have a massive game.
In my opinion, they need to sack Trevor Lawrence multiple times and force a few turnovers. They may not get a better chance all season, so they need to make the most of it.
