Broncos offense showing off big play tendencies in win over Washington

The Denver Broncos put on a show during their full dress rehearsal for the regular season, dominating the Washington Redskins 29-17 on the road.

The Denver Broncos have lacked the big play over the last two seasons, which we covered before Friday’s game in a post called “Dink and Dunk and No Chunk”. The premise obviously being that the Broncos offense could not generate any chunk yardage.

That appears to be changing as they got plenty of chunk in their 29-17 victory over the Washington Redskins.

The explosive offensive plays was a sigh to behold for us fans, since we just hadn’t seen much of that since Peyton Manning retired. If the offense can generate these kinds of chunk plays on a consistent week-to-week basis, then this team is going to score enough points to keep games winnable.

We’ll see if that’s the case in two short weeks. Bring on Week 1 of the regular season!
