that worry that you had about the Broncos secondary in 2018 after the first two games Cheap Matt Paradis Jersey , it was correct. So far they have been very bad. They have been almost the antithesis of the No Fly Zone - the Frequent Flyer Zone. In a pass-happy league, we now have a defense that is great at stopping the run and terrible at stopping the pass. Raise your hand if you think that’s a recipe for success in the NFL in 2018. I’ll wait. Right, I didn’t think so. So let’s see how the defense did against the run on first down? Did we get the Ravens off-schedule? Stopping the Run on 1st DownThe Ravens ran the ball 15 times for 59 yards on first down (3.9 ypc). Meaning that their average to go on 2nd down was 6 yards. 2nd and 6 is manageable and means that you can still run on second down, or you can pass. It also makes play-action passing much more effective. Interestingly, when the Ravens did run on 2nd down, we stuffed them. They ran the ball 7 times for 11 yards on 2nd down. Six of those yards came on the 2nd and goal run by Alex Collins before the (blatantly missed holding call at the point of attack) TD run. Overall the Broncos did fairly well at stopping the run this game, limiting Baltimore to 80 yards rushing on 25 carries (you have to take out the kneel-downs) - 3.2 ypc. We currently stand at 11th in terms of stopping the run on 1st down allowing 3.74 ypc. Miami leads the league with 2.94 while Detroit is dead last allowing a stunning 6.81 ypc on first down runs. Overall on run defense we are 3rd in the league allowing 3.47 ypc. Believe it or not, New Orleans is currently leading the league in run defense allowing only 3.35 ypc while Detroit is dead last allowing 5.92 ypc on all running plays so far. Stopping them on 3rd and longWe forced the Ravens into 16 third down situations and almost half of those were thirdand long. They were able to convert on two of the seven. Both drives on which they converted on third and long ended in touchdowns for the Ravens. On the 19-yard catch by Michael Crabtree, Crabtree does a good job of pushing off just enough to get the separation he needs to have space for the catch. Since both he and Bradley Roby were hand-fighting, it was a good no call. Roby is in good position, but he he doesn’t get his head around quickly and the little push-off creates all of the space that Crabtree needs. The other conversion was a good throw but Darian Stewart needed to make a play on the ball on - he was way out of position. Additionally Will Parks lets a lumbering TE get a step on him in coverage. That should not happen. For the season our defense has now allowed conversion on four of 18 3rd and long situations (22.2%) which is 9th in league at this point. I was surprised to find the KC’s defense currently is leading the league in this stat having only allowed conversion on one of 17 3rd and long situations. The Falcons are currently the worst in the league allowing conversion on 34.8% of 3rd and longs. In another interesting twist, the Denver offense is leading the league right now at converting on 3rd and long.The Broncos offense has converted on eight of 18 3rd and long situations (44.4%). Contrast that with the 49ers who have only converted one of 19 (5.3%). For comparison, our offense converted a total of 29 third and longs during the 2017 season (24.8% conversion) which was in the bottom half of the league. The 2017 offense also turned the ball over six times on 3rd and long and allowed eight sacks in those situations. While our offense has allowed two sacks on third and long this season, none of the five interceptions have come on third and long plays. Moving forward to the Chiefs The passing success that Patrick Mahomes is currently enjoying is unsustainable mostly because no one has ever had this level of success for an entire season - ever. He currently has 13 TDs and zero interceptions over a three game span. I looked at the top seasons in NFL history in terms of TD:INT ratio and none of those QB had a three game stretch where they threw 13 TDs and zero INTs. Not T*m Brady, not Aaron Rodgers, not Drew Brees, not Peyton Manning. While Mahomes will most definitely regress to the mean, I doubt it happens this week. Our passing defense is not even a shadow of what it once was. Our coverage is poor enough that our pass rushers can’t get to the QB fast enough and our lack of depth (or at least healthy depth) at CB means that we can’t effectively play press-man coverage to give our pass-rushers more time to get to the QB. Joe Woods better have a rabbit in his hat or Monday night will get really ugly, really fast. Now, Joe Flacco (25/40 Cheap Bradley Chubb Jersey , 277 yards, 1 TD) did not light up our secondary like Derek Carr did but KC’s offense has been much better at exploiting blown coverages so far this season than either of our first three opponents. So the secondary better get this fixed fast or the comments sections at MHR will be flooded with annoying KC trolls for the next few weeks telling how Patrick Mahomes is the greatest QB to ever play the game.Broncos fight through bad play for huge comeback win, big confidence boost Von Miller has a new nickname for his quarterback.Case Key-Man.Well, he’s trying to make it a nickname.“That’s our guy, ‘The Case Keeman.’ I love that guy,” Miller said. “I know his name is Keenum. It was just a joke. Nobody laughed, but it’s all good.”What wasn’t a joke was how key Keenum actually was to the comeback in the second half yesterday.It took clutch plays from both sides of the ball - including a huge third-down stop by the defense to give the Broncos a chance for a winning score - but the linchpin in the entire comeback, was Case Key-Man (helping you here, Von!), who was 14/24 with one rushing touchdown in the second half after an abysmal 5/11 with one INT in the first.“[Raiders] played good football in the first half, and we didn’t,” head coach Vance Joseph noted, adding the offense got more aggressive in the second half. “We had to be more aggressive — take more shots down the field — and that made them a little softer in the second half. Our guys kept fighting, kept playing and played through adversity and won a football game.”The Broncos’ drive chart in the first half was embarrassing - four punts in a row, an interception, a fifth punt, and then, in an amazing waste of game clock, the Broncos ended their final drive of the first half unable to even attempt a field goal because time just ran out.But the second half was a completely different story. A gloriously different story.Every drive ended in a score, including a ballsy QB sneak on 4th-and-1 at the goal line , and of course, the game-winning field goal with just seconds on the clock.From player performance to coaching decisions, the second half was a fan’s dream comeback scenario.Joseph said after the game that the decision to go for the TD rather than easy points in that third drive to close the deficit 19-17 wasn’t a tough call to make at all.“No, I told Billy, once we got inside of the 10-yard line, it was four-down territory,” Joseph said. “Taking the points there wouldn’t have worked. It would have been a loss for us today. Obviously, Case is a tough guy, and he wants to win and that was the best play to call.”Miller and his defense went to work to keep the Raiders from getting another score, but it took the defense 11 plays and a challenged spot to do it.“We were just trying to get off the field,” Miller said. “They had been doing a great job of running the ball and following it with play-action passes and quick passes. So we just wanted to get off the field, and we were able to do it.”With 1:58 left in the game, the Broncos offense had its chance. And Key-Man & Co. were up to the task. Jake Butt noted that the crew was just “business as usual” even.Thanks to a holding call on the first play from the Broncos’ own 20, the offense started back at its 10. On 2nd-and-20, Emmanuel Sanders showed what superstars do, making a 21-yard play for the first down. A couple of incompletes sprinkled with a 14-yard catch by Courtland Sutton and a 7-yard scramble by Keenum had the Broncos at 3rd-and-3 with 26 seconds to go. A four-yard pass to Jeff Heuerman gave the Broncos a first down, and two plays later Tim Patrick gave the Broncos another one - plus 26 yards and a heads-up play out-of-bounds.“It’s something that we’ve been practicing all the way back to Spring - the two-minute, these kind of situations,” Butt said. “V.J. has done a hell of a job at putting us in bunches of different situations: down six, down three Youth Jeff Heuerman Jersey , down two. We’ve been in situations like this before, so everybody was calm. Let’s just find a way to win. That’s what we did.”The rest is history as Brandon McManus nailed his 36-yarder for the one-point win, 20-19 with 10 seconds on the clock.“It wasn’t just Case. It was Jeff Heuerman getting out of bounds. It was Emmanuel Sanders bringing the ball into the ref, into the hash. The clock’s running. ‘81,’ Tim Patrick, running out of bounds. That was a huge play for us,” Joseph said of the team effort on the final drive. “We meet every Friday about two-minute offense, being smart with the ball and our guys came through. It was fun to watch.”Although Keenum led the comeback, he would probably decline the “key-man” nickname.“There are some incredible guys that never quit. Never quit,” Keenum said after the game. “I love that about them. We have great, great chemistry going right now with those guys. No matter what, I don’t think anyone points a finger at any one person. We just keep plugging along. We’re capable, we know we can do it, and it was just a testament to everyone’s grit and the hard work we put in.”And that means the defense too. Without Shaq Barrett’s blocked point after, without the relentless effort to hold Marshawn Lynch to a 3.6 yard per carry average, without Justin Simmons’ eight tackles (many on Jared Cook), without Miller’s one sack...the offense would likely never have had time to catch up.“We had confidence,” Chris Harris Jr. said of the offense’s chances to win. “Once we get that stop we just had to give them around two minutes to go score. I realized once we got that stop, it was over for them. They couldn’t guard us.”Harris Jr. pointed out that both offense and defense need a better start, but he liked the resolve that the Broncos showed.“We put so much work in as a team. We just decided together that we were going to play as one. Regardless of what adversity happens , we’re going to stick together and always have full confidence,” the cornerback said. “Offense only had one first down in the first half, but we knew they were going to come back in the second half and put on a show.”Domata Peko, whose energy could be felt all over Mile High, was ecstatic over that show.“That was awesome. Big play by Tim. ...It’s really good to see our team doing that. Playmakers making plays from the youngest guys to the older guys. It’s amazing,” he said. “It was a big win for us; division game, being down, fighting our way back up, and climbing back up for the W. Those are the type of wins you really love. When you are down and everyone thinks you’re out, but you climb out of it and you push and everyone believes in each other. It was a great win for us. Big shout to my defensive line, every one of them. We all played our tails off today.”Steve Atwater noted on Twitter that fighting through a bad day can be a great lesson early in the season.“Close games help show teams if they can overcome adversity or not,” he tweeted. “I think we got better by experiencing a rough day and coming out victorious.”Miller would certainly agree with that.“I agree with you 100 percent,” Miller said about having clutch play on both sides of the ball when it mattered. “We’re feeling pretty good just about the overall win today. Whenever you win, especially a team win like this, it’s just a great win. It’s great for the organization.”
