During the month of October, the Broncos have held opponents to a league-low 258.8 yards per game. A large part of that defensive resurgence is due to the team limiting opponents on the ground, as the Broncos lead the league in rushing yards allowed (73.4 ypg).Terrance Knighton has been bolstering the Broncos' defensive front and the defense has contained top RBs like Frank Gore and Andre Ellington. "T-Knight's doing a great job," Malik Jackson said. "He's a leader on the defensive line, and everything he does, he's just a leader in the way he talks to you, the way he acts, and everything he does you just try to follow him and rally around him."With Stevan Ridley out for the season, Shane Vereen and Jonas Gray have been leading the Patriots' rushing attack, which averages 105.6 yards per game.
