The Denver Broncos have a talented defensive unit, but their success in 2019 will be depended upon how well they can run the football. Last season, the Broncos averaged close to five yards-per-carry as the lead back Phillip Lindsay came out of nowhere to rush for over 1,200 yards and score 10 touchdowns. Lindsay's outstanding rookie season was cut short due to a broken wrist sustained in Week 15. New Broncos coach Vic Fangio hopes Lindsay can expand his role as a pass receiver coming out of the backfield this season.
After 11 seasons with the Baltimore Ravens, Joe Flacco is looking to extend his career in Denver. The Broncos are hoping Flacco can master the art of the short passing game as this should keep opposing defenses honest and open the middle of the field for Lindsay in the running game. This shouldn't be too difficult of a task for Flacco as he completed over 61 percent of his passes for a career.
Defensively, Fangio knows his front seven can rush the quarterback, but they have trouble stopping the running game. Opponents averaged close to 120 yards-per-game against the Broncos defense last season. Fangio's aggressive defensive style will be aided by the pass-rushing prowess of Von Miller and Bradley Chubb and having the NFL's best shutdown (Clint Harris Jr.) cornerback in the lineup, but will it be enough to stop an opponent's rushing attack. His defenses are known for creating turnovers that put the offense in good position to score points.
