Broncos vs. Seahawks: 3 position battles that could determine the outcome
Broncos Front Seven vs. Seahawks Offensive Line
The biggest position battle the Broncos must dominate is the front seven going against the Seahawks offensive line.
The Seahawks are trusting the two rookies, Abraham Lucas and Charles Cross, at the tackle positions on the offensive line. They have had their fair share of issues along the offensive line throughout the years, but the Seahawks are hopeful that three new starters can get things going.
For Denver, Bradley Chubb and Randy Gregory (questionable) should take advantage of the two rookies starting on primetime. D.J. Jones generating interior pressure will also be key in this game.
Two x-factors in the front seven for the Broncos will be Baron Browning and Nik Bonitto. Browning has looked fantastic throughout training camp, and it showed in the preseason as well. The same could be said for the rookie Bonitto too.
The game will be determined in the trenches and the Broncos have another favorable matchup here.
