PFF names Lindsay to mid-season All-Rookie team
Phillip Lindsay started the 2018 season as a little-known undrafted running back — except to those fans who followed Lindsay’s time as a Colorado Buffalo. Now, Pro Football Focus has him as the best rookie running back in the entire league. Here's what PFF had to say about the league's leading rookie rusher:
"Lindsay’s performance over the first half of the season is not just a Cinderella story. The undrafted back out of Colorado has outperformed his classmates and is turning heads seemingly every time he touches the ball. Through Week 8, Lindsay has benefitted from a great run-blocking offensive line and has gained 52.2% of his rushing yards before first contact, which leads all qualifying backs and makes him the NFL’s only running back to gain more than half of his yards before contact. He’s also averaged an NFL-high 2.98 yards before first contact per attempt, more than a whole yard ahead of premier running back talents like Todd Gurley (1.72), Kareem Hunt (1.10) and Melvin Gordon II (1.96). At the halfway point of the campaign, Lindsay ranks sixth in total rushing yards (531) and fourth in yards per carry (5.71) among running backs with 60-plus attempts."
Von's Vision a big success
Von Miller hosted Von's Vision Western Round-Up on Monday night to raise money for his charity, which provides glasses and eye care to children who need them. Plenty of teammates showed up to support.
DeMarcus brings country to DWTS
DeMarcus Ware, an Alabama native, brought out his roots during Country Week on "Dancing with the Stars."
Unfortunately, Monday night's performance proved to be his last this season alongside partner Lindsay Arnold as the couple was eliminated. Still, it was a great run from the Super Bowl 50 champion.
Salute to Service
The NFL's Salute to Service campaign runs from Nov. 1-19, and the Broncos have been showing their support for military members in a variety of ways. On Sunday, some service members got involved at the game against the Texans.
Case Keenum and DaeSean Hamilton made a special visit as well.
And the Denver Broncos Cheerleaders got in on the act, too.
