Good afternoon, #BroncosCountry
We hope you're enjoying this beautiful Saturday! Tomorrow the Broncos take on the Packers, but in the meantime, here are three storylines to get caught up on, starting with five reasons the Broncos can defeat the Packers:
1. Five reasons the Broncos could win on Sunday
ESPN's Jeff Legwold has broken down the five keys for the Broncos to top the Packers on Sunday and remain unbeaten. The matchup is the most anticipated so far this season as the matchup is just the fourth between undefeated, untied teams with at least six wins apiece.
The first step? Denver's pass rush.
*Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is unlike anybody the Broncos' defense has faced this year on the way to a league-leading 26 sacks in six games. Rodgers is mobile, smart and has the power arm to make a throw to any part of the field, even on the move. The Broncos have to keep him hemmed in, and this Broncos defense can create pressure in four-man rush packages, which allows Denver to affect plays while still dropping seven players into coverage. *
