Receivers and defensive line
It’s hard to say that I expected the receiving game to be good here. No Allen or Henry is just such a huge detriment to the offense.
Donald Parham and Stephen Anderson honestly did really well in this game. The tight ends combined for six receptions and 95 yards. That’s a traditional Henry stat line, so color me impressed with the fact that they were able to replace his production well.
The rest? Meh. Mike Williams was good in his production with four catches for 54 yards. It didn’t seem like him, Tyron Johnson, or Jalen Guyton were able to create separation terribly effectively. It was serviceable, but certainly a bit of a let down from how Johnson and Guyton played last week. Then again, Denver does have a better secondary compared to what Las Vegas rolled out.
The defensive line on this team is problematic without one of Joey Bosa or Melvin Ingram. Jerry Tillery laid a goose egg in his performance. Other than Linval Joseph and Damion Square, I just didn’t see the effort or technique from this group on a consistent basis.
