Justin Simmons sat down with Broncos Country Tonight on KOA Radio and talked to Ryan Edwards, and Benjamin Allbright about the upcoming game against the Browns.

Despite the presence of 2018 #1 overall pick, Baker Mayfield and superstar wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., Simmons said the defense will be focused on the Browns rushing attack and slowing down Nick Chubb.

It makes sense, as the Browns offense has struggled overall, but their rushing attack is a top five unit so far this season. They lead the league in yards per carry as a team, and Nick Chubb individually leads that category as well as being 3rd in total yards and 5th in touchdowns scored, with six.

Denver knows too well the dangers of letting a back get going and take off for big runs, so slowing down Nick Chubb will definitely be priority #1 for this Denver defense on Sunday.
