CAN YOU SAY DIVISION LEAD? WEEK 13 BY THE NUMBERS

Can you say…Broncos win again? Broncos leading the division? Get used to it Broncos Country, we now control our own destiny, and have now proven we can hang on the offensive side of the ball. Our defense sure missed the constant pressure of Von Miller, but Mario Haggan stepped in and did a fantastic job. Here’s some eye candy for us all!

It’s simple, we have the edge right now in division record, AFC record, and with Oakland losing to Miami, are helped in common opponents as well. Stay ahead and the division is ours. Oh by the way, not that we need it or anything, but the Bengals lost, and the Jets won which means that there is a cluster there for the 2nd wild-card spot. Holding wins over both those teams gives us the head to head advantage. Things are looking up.

For those of you that haven’t jumped on the Tebow or 11’ Broncos train, there’s still room here in La La Land (thanks Mike Clark lol)!

Oh, we are winning as a team. Our defense has stepped up for us before, our offense stepped up today. Pretty cool when all three phases can be depended on to bring us victory isn’t it?!!! Alrighty, here are the final numbers folks:

A Tale of Two Halves

The Broncos offense was absolutely dominated in the first half. They ran a total of 19 plays, only two more than their entire 4th quarter output. They were held to 64 yards on offense, including only 35 rushing yards on 11 carries. The only points the Broncos offense scored? A safety for the other team on the first offensive play of the game.

Whatever was said at halftime, our offense came out fired up! They took the opening drive and chunked out gains of 17, 11, 14, 9, and 21 on big plays including the final TD play on 3rd and 9 on a pass by Tebow to D. Thomas in what looked like broken coverage----there would be a lot of that in this half. After the Broncos offense failed to convert on their next drive on 3rd and 1, they needed only one play after a great 63 yard return by Quan Crosby. This play was nothing short of the great play-making ability Tim Tebow has shown thus far. He took the shotgun snap, avoided pressure, scrambled to his left, and at the last second threw a short strike to a wide open DT who rumbled the rest of the way for the TD. On yet another quick strike in the 4th quarter, Denver only needed two plays, one 42-yard pass to DT, and a Willis McGahee 24-yard touchdown. Think, in two scoring drives in the second half, the Broncos needed 3 plays to score 2 TD’s. This is the potential for our offense going forward. We can hang in a shootout, and we did today.

Other statistical thoughts:

- 7 offensive drives in the 2nd half resulting in a TD, punt, TD, punt, TD, FG, FG for a total of 28 points (includes a successful 2-point conversion)

- McGahee had his 6th 100-yard rushing game of the year going for 111 yards on 20 carries and a TD.

- Tebow can’t throw? Tebow had two completions for more than 40 yards, and another 21-yard TD on a 3rd and 9. He finished with the best passing afternoon of the season completing 67% of his passes and averaging a fantastic 13.5 average per attempt.

- Mario Haggan played a fantastic game starting for Von Miller. He had 7 tackles, 5 assists, and one very important pick 6 in the 1st quarter.

- After allowing only an average of about 15 ppg in the previous five victories, the Denver Defense was absolutely gouged in both points and time of possession, allowing 32 points (17 in the 2nd half) and the Vikings offense to possess the ball for close to 38 minutes.

- Britton Colquitt had another fantastic game punting the ball! On 6 punts, he averaged 48.8 yards net including 3 that pinned the Vikes inside their 20 yd line.

GO BRONCOS!!!
