A Broncos team already reeling because of their first 0-4 start in two decades will have to move forward without outside linebacker Bradley Chubb.
In demoralizing loss, Broncos also lose star player: Bradley Chubb is done for the season (Nicki Jhabvala, The Athletic)
Chubb finished Sunday’s game with seven total tackles and a sack — his first sack of the season. Through the first four games, he had 21 total tackles, including a team-high five for loss. He also led the Broncos with three run-stuffs and six quarterback hits, and was the lone player to force a fumble and had one pass-defensed.
It wasn’t that Jacksonville running backs Leonard Fournette and Ryquell Armstead combined for 267 yards against the Denver defense for the game.
It’s that they rushed for a combined 225 yards – 190 by Fournette – in the second half alone.
Who was to blame? The Broncos’ defensive front? Linebackers not filling the gap? Missed tackles by the safeties and cornerbacks?
