Denver Broncos Should Find Running Room on Sunday


Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

The Baltimore Ravens star linebacker Ray Lewis will not play on Sunday versus the Denver Broncos. There were many including Lewis who believed he was going to play but the Ravens decided it would be better to give the Pro Bowl player one more week. In addition to Lewis, the Ravens will be without middle linebacker Jameel McClain and fellow Pro Bowler Terrell Suggs. Suggs, also a linebacker is listed as doubtful which means he has a 25% chance of playing. What does all of this have to do with the Broncos?

Contrary to what I’ve been writing for a few weeks now, the Broncos should be able to run the ball effectively on Sunday. The Ravens will be without their three starting linebackers and have been giving up a ton of yards on the ground in recent weeks. Knowshon Moreno has also been running the ball better over the past couple of games and should have some room to run versus the Ravens.

The Broncos are not going to turn into a running team overnight but they should be able to do some damage, and make it even tougher for the Ravens to defend Peyton Manning. The Broncos are a play-action team and that has been effective even when they weren’t running the ball well. If Moreno and Ronnie Hillman are gashing the Ravens, then Manning’s play fakes will be that much more effective. In addition to the problems at linebackers, the Ravens are missing their best cornerback and have had issues defending the pass.

If the Broncos are going to win on Sunday; it will be because of the passing game as it has been all season. However with the improving Moreno and a suspect Ravens run defense, it sets up for a very good day for the Broncos on the ground.

Eli Manning Has Interesting Reaction To Broncos' Super Bowl Win

Eli Manning was captured on video making an interesting face when the Denver Broncos cemented their Super Bowl 50 win. The Internet firmly believes Eli is upset that Peyton now has two rings just like he does, but this is simply an overreaction. Eli was clearly nervous throughout the game, and his odd facial expressions are more indicative of a sign of relief than anything else.
