Report: C.J. Anderson to start at running back for the Denver Broncos

New, comments


Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

According to Pro Football Talk, Denver Broncos are expected to start C.J. Anderson at running back during Super Bowl 50.

This is a no-brainer in my opinion. Anderson has been the better running back between the two this season, and especially during the postseason. Anderson has 31 carries for 144 yards and one touchdown.

Meanwhile, running back Ronnie Hillman has 27 carries for only 44 yards this postseason.

I expect to C.J. Anderson to be used heavily in this game, especially early on. If the Broncos can run the ball effectively and control the clock, they have a good shot at winning this game.

Go Broncos!
