The MasterMind is sitting pretty. Reuben Droughns rushed for 176 yards on 38 carries with a touchdown. The defense held Oakland to a single field goal and those points were generated by an Oakland interception return to the Denver 20 yard line. Receivers other than Rod Smith are stepping up and making plays.
The defense earns another week as the top ranked defense in the AFC. And the offense moves up to the second ranked offense (top ranked rushing offense) in the AFC. The season is shaping up very nicely for the Broncos.
I thought that the Bailey-Portis trade was a mistake. But I’m very happy that everyone is proving me wrong. The Broncos offense is back and running on all cylinders. And the defense is coming together much better than I had envisioned.
