The New Orleans Saints are hosting the Denver Broncos in week 10 NFL action on Sunday. All the information to tune into this game is listed below.
The Denver Broncos are going through a tough stretch right now. In week 10 they are facing a New Orleans Saints team that on somewhat of a roll, having won 2 straight. The Broncos, on the other hand, have lost 3 out of their last 5 games. This is a must win for the Denver Broncos before their bye week. Here are 3 keys for the Broncos to pull off the victory.
Pressure Drew Brees
The offensive line of the New Orleans Saints is playing very well. That is why it is critical for the Denver Broncos to get to Drew Brees. The Saints are only giving up 1.5 sacks per game. They are 5th in the league in this category. If the Denver Broncos lack a pass rush against the Saints offense it could be a long day for their secondary, who will more than likely be without the services of Aqib Talib for the 3rd week.[embedit snippet=”Sean ads”]
Stop the run
The Denver Broncos run defense has had some issues over the past several weeks. They are currently ranked 29th in the NFL in rush defense. If the Broncos want to get back to consistency on defense then they will need to stop the Saints run game and make then one-dimensional. If this does not happen then Drew Brees will control the game and the Broncos could very well be looking at 2 game deficit behind the idol Oakland Raiders.
Attack the New Orleans secondary
The New Orleans Saints are currently ranked last in the league in pass defense. They are giving up more than 300 yards per game on average. Denver must exploit this. However, they cannot take advantage of this without using the run game. The Denver Broncos offense is predicated on the run game. If they are not able to run the football and set up play action, they become a sitting duck offense. There will be opportunities for big plays in the passing game if Denver runs the football. Remember it is not always quality when it comes to an effective running game.[embedit snippet=”Sean ads”]
The Denver Broncos are in a must win situation. Being down 2 games to the division leading Oakland Raiders would be tough to overcome, especially since the Raiders own the head to head thus far. Gut check time for the Broncos and their fans. Can they regain the winning way on Sunday? Tune in to find out.
