- Notice the Broncos only ran the ball eleven times in 11 personnel? (Wes Welker's counts). It would appear that they ran the ball anywhere from 20-26 times from 12 personnel (33 possible snaps--Tamme and Green added together).

- Moreno got the lions share of snaps and opportunities while Ball was the other RB they went to. Hillman was nonexistent.

- Caldwell continues to make the most out of his very limited opportunities hauling in a nice sideline catch down the field.

- With the talented receiving corps of the Giants, the Broncos ran their subpackages predominantly on Sunday. Notice that Nate Irving only has 16 defensive snaps. This also supports Del Rio's use of Ayers and Phillips more as OLB in an odd front scheme.

- Notice the extensive use of Dime packages and different safety rotations as David Bruton had 28 defensive snaps to go along with Mike Adams' 36 defensive snaps.

- DT is truly a rotation with hybrid player Malik Jackson getting the most snaps with 32. The rest of the front is pretty evenly disbursed with Vickerson (29), Knighton (28), Unrein (22), and Williams (19) within 10 snaps of each other.

Special Teams

No numbers here, but note these players (they are the only ones to get snaps):

Bruton, Holliday, Irving, Johnson, Lenon, Robinson, Tamme, Webster, Woodyard, Prater, Colquitt, Brewer.

Pass Rush

(via Pro Football Focus)

With Denver missing Von Miller it's natural to ask where the pass-rush will be coming from. Some speculated that Shaun Phillips would pick up the slack, or maybe Derek Wolfe would be the biggest impact, but the truth is Denver knows they can't replace Miller's production with any one player, and they're setting about replacing it from everywhere. They used 21 players on defense during the game, and 16 of them rushed the passer at some stage. Of those 16 players, only Nate Irving, who rushed just once, failed to record any pressure at all. Denver had fifteen members of its defense register pressure. The Giants' line remains questionable, but the point is that Denver is replacing Von Miller's pass rush not with any one player, or with a defensive line of shared rushing responsibility, but by getting the entire defense involved in bringing the heat.

Coverage

(via Pro Football Focus)

The Broncos actually played pretty well against the Giants' receivers on the back end but were the victim of some extremely tough officiating when it came to their coverage. All three of their top corners were flagged in this game, with the trio combining for six penalties with some of them falling firmly into the ‘questionable' category. Aside from those flags, they were actually pretty successful in coverage, each picking off a pass and only Chris Harris failing to break up a pass in addition to his pick. Denver will be hoping for some more favorable officiating going forward, but despite come costly penalties they will be pleased how their coverage unit held up without their star man Champ Bailey, even if Eli Manning did finish with the inflated tally of 362 yards after chasing the game.

That's it for snap counts this week MHR, cheers!
