The Denver Broncos will be on the road in Week 3 to play the Buffalo Bills. Here are three players to keep an eye on during this game.
The Denver Broncos are coming into their Week 3 matchup with the Buffalo Bills with 318 total rushing yards and 383 total passing yards, equaling to 701 total yards. They have scored nine touchdowns in two games and managed control the clock by owning on average 34:01 of time of possession. Denver is the only 2-0 team in the league with a -1 turnover ratio.
On defense, the Broncos have only allowed 33 first downs, six third-down conversions and three fourth-down conversions. The defense has been impeccable at stopping the run by only allowing 104 yards in the last two games and holding Dallas Cowboys‘ star running back Ezekiel Elliott to eight yards rushing.
The team has been a little bit lenient against the pass by allowing 517 total passing yards. However, a large portion of those yards came late in both games during garbage time, when it’s easier for the opposing team to pass the football. The defense only has three sacks in the last two games with two of the sacks being produced by Von Miller.
The Buffalo Bills have accumulated 584 total yards on offense with 259 of those yards coming from their run game. The team also has 349 passing yards. The offensive line has given up five sacks in the last two games. Denver’s pass rush might be too much for Buffalo’s offensive line. The Bills on averages have owned 27:06 of time of possession in the first two weeks of the season.
Statistically, their defense is very stout, allowing just 115 yards on the ground. They’ve also been very tough against the pass, allowing only 415 yards, averaging to just 207.5 yards per game on the ground. The defense allowed 11 third-down conversions and one fourth-down conversion.
This game is going to be pretty interesting, considering both teams are very stout on defense. Denver seems to have more talent overall on both sides of the ball. The Broncos are very talented at receiver which could cause some miss matches along the Bills’ secondary.
Denver’s only weak link is their offensive line, who will be without first-round rookie Garett Bolles, which could present some issues on Sunday. The Bills have sacked the quarterback seven times this year, and that number could drastically increase if the offensive line can’t execute their blocking assignments.
This game has the potential to be a tight low scoring affair and more than likely the winner of this game won’t be decided until the final minutes of the game. Here are three players from the Broncos who could make a big impact in this game.
