Broncos podcast: Is the Green Bay Packers defense fool's gold?

New, comments

They're the NFL's #1 scoring defense, but we all know bend-but-don't-break doesn't always last.

The Denver Broncos' defense is No. 1 in almost every statistical category - yards, 3rd down conversions, yada yada, takeaways. But in the most important statistical category, points? The Broncos are No. 3. Their Week 8 opponent, the Green Bay Packers, are tops in the NFL when it comes to scoring defense.

But are they "for real" or "fool's gold"? Wisconsin sports talk show host Bill Michaels joined Eric and Zach on The Afternoon Drive to give Denver the pulse of Green Bay, and his reaction to the Packers defense allowing Philip Rivers to throw for over 500 yards in Week 6 is interesting.
