The Broncos hold the highest pressure rate against quarterbacks and have for two years in a row. Denver’s defense has experience on its side with Von Miller one of the best defensive ends in the NFL, Brandon Marshall, Todd Davis and Shaquil Barrett. The Cowboys defense doesn’t lack talent by any stretch even though there’s a lot of newer talent with Jaylon Smith, Taco Charlton, Brian Price and defensive back Chidobe Awuzie to name a few. Then DeMarcus Lawrence who was drafted in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft was all over Eli Manning in Week 1. Rob Marinelli defensive coordinator has been working hard with the defense and it looks like it's paid off.
Offense for the Dallas Cowboys possess the talents to provide pass protection for Dak Prescott. They have players like Jason Witten and Cole Beasley who have the skill to find the gaps in coverage. If the offense can contain the Denver’s defense and allow Dak time to throw the ball the passing game will be productive. If not look for more turnovers and missed targets. Either way Ezekiel Elliot can rack up the rushing yards as he demonstrated in Week 1.
The Denver Broncos led by QB Trevor Siemian under the watchful eye and teachings of offensive coordinator Mike McCoy looked good in Week 1. TEs Virgil Green, Jeff Heuerman and A.J. Derby totalled 98 yards in 5 only catches which is more than 2.5 times the average per game in the 2016 season. Siemian threw for 219 passing yards and added 19 more rushing yards. Siemian has spent a lot of time watching tape of other quarterbacks to try to better his own game. One of them was Dak Prescott. “He’s in ultimate control of their offense. Obviously, very accurate. He’s got good chemistry with those receivers. I feel like they’re always in sync.” said Siemian of Prescott.
Week 2 Cowboys versus Broncos is the opportunity for Siemian to show us what he has learned.
