If the Denver Broncos win the Super Bowl, should they give a little bit of love over to the San Diego Chargers for waking up their sleeping defense?
Broncos DT Terrance Knighton talked about how the Broncos defense got together after the loss to the Chargers:
“The whole defense got together after the game, huddled up and guys just said how they felt about how we were playing and that it was about that time we step up and peak at the right time,” Knighton said. “I told everybody how I felt … you can’t just show up in the playoffs and start playing well.” – Pro Football Talk
So… we woke those jerks up!
The defense did well against us in our playoff matchup, but we were without Ryan Mathews in that game. That game would have been a whole lot different if Mathews were healthy. I think we would have pounded the ball down their throats. We almost made that comeback and if we got the ball one more time, we would have scored.
The Broncos defense won’t be able to hide against Marshawn Lynch in the Super Bowl. He is healthy and ready to go BEAST MODE.
