The Squeeze: Defense makes history and a bye-week break

Posted Jan 5, 2016

A concentrated look at recent juice on the Broncos.

Happy Tuesday, #BroncosCountry –

We hope you’re enjoying this beautiful day. Here’s a couple things to get caught up on, starting with the defense:

1. Broncos defense makes history

Denver’s defense made history in 2015, finishing the season as the No. 1-ranked team in total defense. A Broncos defense has never finished as the top team in total offensive yards allowed.

The defense also finished No. 1 in sacks (52) and pass defense (199.6 yards allowed per game).

That’s pretty amazing considering the defense missed key players at various points throughout the season:

The Broncos had just four players -- defensive end Malik Jackson, linebacker Von Miller, linebacker Brandon Marshall and cornerback Chris Harris Jr. -- start every game this season. Derek Wolfe (four games), T.J. Ward (one game) and Aqib Talib (one game) all served suspensions at some point during the season. And on the injury front, DeMarcus Ware (five games), Ward (three games) and Darian Stewart (one game) are starters who all missed time with injuries.

Read the rest of Jeff Legwold of ESPN’s piece on the special defense here.

2. Broncos enjoy break

After securing the No. 1 seed in the AFC, the Broncos got three days to rest and recuperate during the bye week before returning to prep for Jan. 17. Here’s how some of the players are enjoying the break:
