The Broncos ‘D’ will step up

Not many teams in the NFL are really dependent on their defense unless they are the Seahawks, but in this game I’m saying the Broncos defense will do something that will put them in the drivers seat to victory.

I know Denver’s defense has been suspect, but this is all in fun, and I want to believe with such high stakes on the line the defense of the Broncos will step up and play up to the standards of their teammates on offense.

The player I’m predicting to make a difference on defense is Chris Harris. He missed the last meeting against the Chargers, but in the final two weeks of the regular season he had six combined tackles and two pass defensed. His 58 solo tackles ranks second on the Broncos this season.
