Happy Championship Weekend Broncos fans!
All that's left at this point are the best teams in the league. Among those are your Broncos and my Patriots, both of which are led by icons of their generation. Though the players and teams are different, there is one storyline that has remained consistent over the past decade and counting: Brady versus Manning.
Of those players, you all are probably pretty familiar with us by now. Our offense and defense have both been decimated by injury, forcing rookies and no-namers to step up and fill in. Our defensive backfield remains the strength of the team, and should match up well against your all-time great group of WRs. Our front end has been boosted by the play of Sealver Siliga and Jamie Collins, who have done their best to replace Vince Wilfork and Jerod Mayo respectively.
On offense, we're significantly weaker. Outside of Edelman, no WR has shown anything resembling consistency - though Amendola, Dobson, Thompkins and Austin Collie have all had their moments. Over the past several weeks, our run game has exploded thanks to monster games by LeGarrette Blount and managed to avoid any more Steven Ridley fumbles. Your run defense also looks stronger then when we last met, so this should be an especially interesting area to pay attention to.
And incase any of you were wondering, here's a similar thread you posted on our site.
