Broncos Lose to Steelers with Less Than 100 Running Yards

by admin on Monday, December 21st, 2015

Denver BroncosOnce again, the Broncos failed to reach 100 yards using running backs. Ronnie Hillman got 48 yards and CJ Anderson only 14. It is known that the offensive system that is typically deployed on their matches is based mostly in effective running game to make the quarterback breath and have open spaces when launching.

It is clear that the teams that are going against them are gearing up and usually add more men to the pocket to help against the loose routes and spaces are left in the back for Osweiler. Once they start to make adjustments and can stop the Denver running backs with six or seven men in the pocket, the coverage is better and the inexperienced quarterback has trouble finding open receivers.

Injuries have hampered the offensive line for the Broncos and those who are playing at the moment are not doing a good job the running game is not effective, even pressure to the Denver quarterback can go smoothly with only 3 or 4 defensives.

In most cases, Chris Harris was responsible for Antonio Brown coverage and although often was near him, he could not stop the receptions The second half was the main factor for the Steelers in taking back the score and thus the win. It is clear that Brown cannot be left in a man to man coverage with anyone in the league and the need of a safety to reduce his effectiveness.

Another challenge by locals was to prevent Ben Roethlisberger having any trouble with the Broncos pass rushers. While the Broncos’ defense got three sacks in the game, two of Malik Jackson and another from the rookie Shane Ray, the Steelers offensive line had a good day minimizing the most dangerous players when pressuring the quarterback.

Ronnie Hillman started the game in a shaky note after the first series he fumbled after Timmons caught him, Steelers recovered the ball in the opponent’s territory. Hence the first touchdown of the home team was scored. In the second half, after removing the pressure, Osweiler threw a pass to Sanders with Ryan Shazier close enough to win the interception. Denver again fumbled in their own territory and gave Steelers the lead in the game, a definite lead.
