We’re going behind enemy lines with Predominantly Orange to get more information on the Tennessee Titans’ Week 6 opponent, the Denver Broncos.
We wanted to get a bit more information on the Tennessee Titans’ Week 6 opponent, the Denver Broncos, so we went behind enemy lines with FanSided’s Broncos site, Predominantly Orange.
Titan Sized: It’s always hard to nail down a team’s issues with one reason, but what’s the biggest reason the Broncos are 1-4 right now?
Predominantly Orange: It truly is an inability to play a complete game. In the two losses that were decided on a time expiring field goal, the defense failed to show up. Against Oakland, it was a slow start not playing the entire 60 minutes. Against the Packers, it was close but turnovers caused by the offense cost us. Except for the opener against the Raiders, the Broncos have been competitive. They could easily be 4-1 at this point. So, there has been inconsistency with this team. They are much better than a 1-4 record indicates.
TS: What are the Broncos doing to fill the void left by Bradley Chubb’s injury?
PD: Malik Reed has been filling in with Chubb out for the season. And he really showed what he could do in the preseason. He even recorded a sack on Gardner Minshew against the Jaguars. He might be young, but he could be Denver’s next Shaq Barrett.
TS: Do you believe Joe Flacco is an upgrade over Case Keenum?
PD: Yes. While most will not agree with me, he has proven time in and time out better the quarterback play has been with him under center. He has made very few mistakes and is quite arguably the best quarterback not named Peyton Manning or John Elway. While most will look at Denver’s win-loss record and say he is not “elite”, the majority of the losses were not on Flacco. I think he is starting to find his stride and could be a strong QB for the Broncos this season while we wait for the development of Drew Lock.
TS: Who is the biggest X-factor for the Broncos in Week 6?
PD: Alexander Johnson had a strong showing against the Chargers and I look for him to do that again on Sunday. His play making has absolutely earned him another chance to start. If he can bring forth the performance against the Titans, Denver could be a strong defense again.
TS: The Broncos win on Sunday if…
PD: The offense can get to a fast start and the defense holds the lead. Both the Broncos and Titans have strong defenses, so it will come down to the offense to make the bigger plays than the opposing offense. I see this as a low scoring game and the offense that makes the one big play will come away with the win.
