Reply with quote

for game-breaking catch The Denver Broncos were down 12-0 at halftime
, then down 19-10 late in the fourth quarter. Then Case Keenum took over. In his final two drives, he led the Broncos to a touchdown and then a last second field goal to secure the 20-19 win over the Oakland Raiders. With a fury of a comeback like that, there will certainly be some game balls to give out for this one. Letís start things off with the man who made the win possible with a fantastic catch and run that made the winning field goal attempt that much easier of an attempt. Tim PatrickIn a game where our wide receivers had 1/4 of their catches nullified by the refs, Tim Patrick made sure there wasnít any such nonsense on the last play of the game to get the Broncos into winning field goal range. What a great play by a guy whoís the 4th or 5th WR on the depth chart. It says a lot that Keenum trusted him late in the game with the pass and he showed great savvy getting every yard he could and going out of bounds when it was clear he couldnít house it. - SadaraineEditorís note: Speaking of the referees...Brandon McManusBrandon McManus continued his hot start to the season going 2 for 2 on extra points, and 2 for 2 on field goals. Giving a game ball to a kicker may seem ridiculous, but when you kick the game winner you earn some love. The Broncos offense sputtered throughout the first half, but McManus was ready every time he was called upon, and money with the game on the line. Watching the rest of the kickers in the NFL struggle in the clutch really helps you appreciate what he has been able to do in the first two weeks of the season. - Adam MalnatiCase KeenumHis stats line looked pedestrian, with only 222 yards and an INT (because the refs think this is 2017 and not 2018). But that doesnít paint the full picture. In this game, which was too close for comfort, Keenum kept his cool and remained calm, and when the chips were down, he delivered. How about that designed QB sneak for 8 yards that took EVERYONE by surprise? How about pulling a ďBradyĒ and going in on a QB sneak on 4th freaking down instead of trying for the FG? That takes onions the size of Vidaliaís. Then on the final drive, when all hope is lost, backed up 2nd & 20 on our own 10, does he press and freak out? No, he remains cool under pressure and delivers strike after strike after strike. Next thing you know, weíre lining McMoney up for a chip shot extra point at 36 yards and sending Oakland home with their tails between their legs. Case Keenum has this team at 2-0, and even though it wasnít pretty
, we came out with a much needed victory. - Pete BaronShaquil BarrettNot often a guy who blocks an extra point gets a gameball, but Barrettís play proved to be the difference. As he did in Week One against the Seattle Seahawks, he finds a way to make an impact whenever heís on the field. Hereís hoping we start to see Barrett on the field more in the coming weeks. - Ian St. ClairPhillip LindsayPhillip Lindsay gets my game ball. When the offense was dead in the water in the first half, he was the only spark of life. He finished the game with 14 carries for 107 yard to go with 1 catch for 4 yards. Even you discount his beautiful 53 yard scamper, he still had 54 yards on his other 13 carries (4.2 ypc). Lindsay was the best ball-carrier on the team in the first two games and he appears to only be getting better. I love that Musgrave is getting him the ball with 17 touches in the first game and 15 touches in the second game. - Joe MahoneyBill MusgraveAfter a horrendous start by the offense, Bill Musgrave went back to the drawing board at half and changed things up, adding in hurry up elements that kept the Raiders on their heels. Add in two gutsy calls on a read option and QB sneak on 4th and goal, and Musgrave is a big piece of how Denver pulled off this comeback - Jeff EssaryWho gets your game ball for helping the Broncos win this game? Share in the comments section below.Ultimate Fan: Ravens are going down at home The Broncos will face their first road test this weekend against a beat-up Ravensí team, but that doesnít mean this game will be any easier. Playing the early game and having some injury doubts of its own, Denver needs to take care of the ball on offense and take it away on defense if it wants to make it to Monday with a 3-0 record.But to make sure we are fully prepared for this test, kingbronco58 - a CU grad who will be attending the game - is helping us review just what this 2018 Broncos team needs to do to maintain its perfect record (and keep us heading for 19-0, amirite Whorfin?)And if youíre wondering just how dedicated a fan kingbronco is...well, he joined us the year Josh McDaniels took over so that shows his true dedication to this team!Week 3: Broncos at RavensMHR - What is your reaction to the 20-19 win over the Raiders - does it increase your confidence in this team because of the way it came back, or does it worry you that the Broncos were so close with a team that it seemingly should have dominatedkingbronco58: I would have to say Iím concerned the Broncos needed a last-second field goal to win the game. The Raiders werenít doing anything special against us and the lack of adjustments on the defensive side of the ball were frustrating. As Coach Joseph said this week, they had a bad game plan. Itís incredible that the coaching staff didnít try to mix things up when Carr had a completion percentage over 90 percent.On the offensive side of the ball, I expected we would eventually see drives stall and we would see some three-and-outs. However, I didnít think weíd be going three-and-out for the majority of the first half. Glad we made some adjustment at half and came out swinging, but those adjustments need to happen a lot earlier. We arenít going to beat talented teams in one half of football.MHR - Phillip Lindsay has been surprising a lot of people (and teams), but as a CU grad
, are you surprised by what he is doing in the NFL so far?kingbronco58: I actually was part of Lindsayís graduating class, so as a CU alum, I fully expected Lindsay to be a star in the NFL. Lindsay was the heart and soul of the CU offense for the last few years. Even when the Buffs were doing terribly last season, it was always fun watching them play. I donít do a ton of draft analysis, but I thought Lindsay would be worthy of a fourth-round pick and was surprised to see him fall. I hoped the Broncos would take a flyer on him in the 7th round but was thrilled when he signed with the Broncos - even as a UDFA. I am a little surprised by his contributions in special teams, which is something he never did at CU, but as far as his impact as running back, I fully expected it.MHR - Speaking of running backs, the Broncosí running game has been a highlight for the first time in a while, ranking second in the NFL for yards per carry. Going against a Ravens defense that right now ranks 11th in run defense for yards per carry, how should the Broncosí offense utilize its run game this weekend?kingbronco58: We have played two games this season, so I think itís too early to tell if the Ravens are legitimately a great run-stopping defense. Additionally C.J. Mosley may not be fully healthy for this game. The Broncos should still be able to get their running game going on Sunday, given they have two very different runners in Lindsay and Royce Freeman. Historically, the Broncos havenít been extremely successful when they abandon the run, so I would like to see a good balance between throwing the ball and running it this Sunday. And even if running the ball isnít very successful, we should not abandon it; itís fundamental to opening up our offense.MHR - Case Keenum has thrown more than half as many interceptions in his first two games with Denver as he did all last season with Minnesota. Does this concern you and how would you game plan to give him confidence in throwing but not provide too many opportunities for an INT?kingbronco58: Yes this does concern me since the rate he is throwing interceptions suggests we got the pre-2017 Case Keenum. That said, he has responded very well after interceptions - unlike what we saw from our quarterbacks last year. Itís important to get Keenum comfortable, so Iíd like to see Musgrave give him some quick easy throws to start and also call some plays designed to involve Emmanuel Sanders early. Keenum has shown great chemistry with Sanders and has looked good when No. 10 is involved in the game. Mix in the run game to open up the play action pass. If the offense can show some balance, and keep the Ravens defense off balance
, then Keenum should look a lot better. MHR - Jared Veldheer could be out with a concussion this game, so what could that do to offensive lineís stability so far this season and what could it mean for Baltimoreís pass rushing ability?kingbronco58: When Billy Turner entered the game on the Sunday the offense didnít miss a beat. Of course it helps that the Raiders had traded their best rusher and couldnít provide any pressure. I do think it would be a huge hit if Veldheer canít play on Sunday. The starting offensive line has looked much better then I would have imagined, but if Turner gets the start, expect Baltimore to bring some pressure on Keenum. . I donít think Turner looked great in preseason, so it will become even more critical for Denver to get the run game going and throw some quick passes.MHR - Last week the Broncosí secondary didnít play press-man and it cost them as the Raiders methodically worked their way down the field on most of their drives, keeping their offense on the field and wearing down our defense. How should the Broncosí defense attack Flacco and the Ravensí offense this week?kingbronco58: Unlike Carr, Flacco is much more likely to hold on to the ball and go for the big play and look for chunk yards. That said, if receivers are open, Flacco is smart enough to take whatís there. The Broncos should do what they do best and play press man and rely on their pass rush. If the Broncosí pass rush can land some hits on Flacco and get in his head, the defense wonít get carved up like it did last week. If we come out playing off coverage, itís gonna be another long game on the defensive side of the ball.MHR - The Ravens havenít utilized running back Alex Collins too much so far, but there is talk that he needs to be built into the scheme more often because of his pass-catching ability. How do you think he will fare against the Broncosí run defense if he gets more touches?kingbronco58: He will do OK, but the Broncosí run defense has been pretty stout thus far. Collins will fare right around the 3.5 ypc mark if he gets more touches. He is certainly a talented back, but thereís a reason heís been featured so much in a weak Ravens backfield. Collins has had a knack for fumbling the ball; if he gets more touches, I would hope the Broncos are able to force atleast one turnover. MHR - Shaq Barrett doesnít get as many snaps as the rookie Bradley Chubb, but he has been very effective when heís in. Do you think he should be involved more in the defense, even more than Chubb at this point?kingbronco58: This is a really tough question. Right now I would say no. Chubb may not be racking up the sacks like Von, but he hasnít been a liability on the field. Chubb has done a fantastic job defending the run so far this season, and as the season continues
, I think he will develop as a pass rusher. Barrett has been great over the last few years, and I think he deserves a bump in playing time. I would be thrilled to see Barrett in more and let him expel Chubb and help keep all our pass rushers fresh. I think at most Barrett and Chubb should split the reps evenly. I would hate to prevent our first-round draft pick from developing as the year progresses.MHR - Chris Harris doesnít seem too worried about covering the Ravensí receivers, namely Michael Crabtree and Willie Snead IV. But John Brown could be another story. How do you think Harris and his fellow corners/safeties will fare against this WR corps?kingbronco58: I think the Ravens have a fairly underrated group of receivers. They may not have any really big names at the position, but they have put together some solid outings this season. The Ravensí biggest X-factor has to be John Brown, who has had his moments this season. I would like to see Harris follow Brown, since I think he is the only one with the speed and technique to keep up.Bradley Roby can handle Crabtree, though it wonít be as entertaining as Talib vs. Crabtree, and I think our No. 3 corner can handle Snead. Overall the secondary should do a pretty good job if Woods calls the defense to it strengths and plays press man coverage. If they give the Ravens offense ďtoo much respectĒ like they did last week, the secondary will be torched. I want to see Dymonte Thomas match up on Mark Andrews, who put together a solid outing against the Bengals last week.MHR - Which players will be playmakers on Sunday?kingbronco58: On defense the obvious playmaker is Von Miller, so Iíll pick someone else. I think Justin Simmons shines on Sunday as he is going to get his fair share of opportunities to make plays. With Flacco enjoying taking deep shots, Simmons should be able to get some opportunities to make big hits and get his second INT of the season. On offense, Iím going to go with fellow CU alum Phillip Lindsay. Lindsay has been a big spark on offense and is extremely shifty. This will be his first road game, and I expect his impact to be felt on the road as well. Beyond Lindsay, I think Sanders will have a big day against the Ravens as well.PredictionsThe Favorites How did you become a Broncos fan?The first Broncos game I ever watched was the Broncosí loss to the Steelers in the 2005 AFC Championship. But I didnít really get hooked on football until a few years after that. I started watching closely and learning the game of football and cheering for the Broncos the season they hired McDaniels.
