Broncos Vs Cowboys

What up gang! This week we play the Cowgirls in a game that will largely define our season. Many people have pointed out the teams we have beat are second rate and I would have to agree with them. The teams we have beat are not great teams but it is always hard to win games in the NFL, any given sunday? But this week puts us against a team that is meant to be top tier. This will be a hard fought battle as the Dallas Defense has started to fire. Also their offense is very good. So it will be a interesting game to watch. ~ On a side note I should be online for the game as I have that day off hi-five! Ok now to give you info from around the web.

Last meeting:
Jason Elam nailed a 55-yard field goal to give the Broncos a dramatic 24-21 win on Thanksgiving Day in 2005.

Streaks:
The Broncos have won the past three meetings and the overall series is tied at five, including the playoffs.

Last week:
Denver jumped out to an early lead and never looked back in a 23-3 victory over Oakland. ... Terence Newman put the game away with a 27-yard interception return for a touchdown as the Cowboys dropped the Panthers, 21-7.

Keep your eye on ...

Denver's first significant defensive test: The Broncos have played phenomenal defense this season and rank first in the league. That said, they have faced the league's worst two offenses the past two weeks and played against Cincinnati's 24th-ranked unit in Week 1. The challenge gets tougher this Sunday against the Cowboys' third-ranked offense.

Roy Williams' evolution as a No. 1 receiver: Slowly, but surely, Williams has become a bigger part of Dallas' offense. His four catches in Monday night's win over Carolina were his most in a Cowboys uniform and though he only has eight catches this season, he is averaging 22.4 yards per reception. He will need to come up big against a Broncos secondary that features Pro Bowl performers Champ Bailey and Brian Dawkins.

Dallas' ability to force turnovers: Through the first two weeks, the Cowboys defense had no sacks or takeaways. That changed against the Panthers as it tallied three sacks and three takeaways. It won't be as easy to force the Broncos offense into mistakes: Denver has only two turnovers all season and has given up only three sacks.

Did you know?

The Cowboys have won eight of their past 11 against the AFC. ... Dallas has rushed for over 200 yards in two straight games for the first time since 1979. ... The Broncos have not started 4-0 since 2003. ... Denver RB Knowshon Moreno leads all rookies with 184 rushing yards.

OFFENSE:

  • The Broncos are one of two AFC teams (Baltimore) to feature two players with at least 180 rushing yards in RB Correll Buckhalter (230) and RB Knowshon Moreno (184). Denver is fourth in the league in rushing, averaging 158.7 yards per game.
  • According to Stats Inc., LT Ryan Clady owns the longest active streak in the NFL (all 19 career games) of not allowing a full sack among starting tackles.
  • RB Correll Buckhalter is averaging 7.2 yards per rush (17-122, 1 TD) in two starts this year. Since 2007, he owns the NFL’s third-best yards per rush average (5.2, 155-804, 7 TDs).

DEFENSE:

  • Coached by long-time NFL defensive coordinator Mike Nolan, the Broncos have tied for the third-fewest points allowed (16) by an NFL team through its first three games of a season in the Super Bowl era (since 1966).
  • Denver leads the league in several other defensive categories, including yards per game (214.7), yards per play (3.9) and fewest red zone drives (4).
  • OLB/DE Elvis Dumervil ranks second in the league with six sacks, which have all occurred in the previous two weeks (most in the NFL). Dumervil has posted an NFL-best four sacks on third down.

SPECIAL TEAMS:

  • The Broncos lead the AFC and rank second in the NFL in average opponent drive start after kickoffs (20.6-yard line).
  • K Matt Prater is 3-for-3 on field goal attempts of at least 40 yards and is tied for the league lead in touchbacks on kickoffs (7).
ESPN.com
Dumervil has six sacks as he transitions to becoming a linebacker (he previously was a defensive end) in Denver’s new 3-4 defense. Dumervil, record-setting sack artists in college, is putting constant pressure. He had 26 sacks in his first three NFL seasons. But he is clearly taking his game to the next level. Pass rushers are one of the toughest commodities to find in the NFL. Dumervil will be coveted.

On that note I would like to give a shout out to Elvis 'Doom'ervil who has been playing off the chain the last few games. I hope to see it contuine against the Cowladies, good luck to him.

Joke:

A: Eventually the baby stops whining.

  2. Had to post this thought it was funny.

    When asked what the Broncos front seven will have to do to prepare to take on the massive line, Elvis Dumervil joked, "Eat a lot of steak and potatoes."

  5. I'm rarely optimistic... more rather a realist and middle of the road... but I do like to think that we didn't PLAY the 2 worst offenses in the league RATHER than WE MADE THEM THE 2 WORST RATED OFFENSES in the league.

  6. What up gang can't wait for the game. I am gearing up for a big one. In a way I think this game could define the season. Also would be great if Doom gets the 2 sacks most of us have been predicting.

  11. so the Cowboys will be without Felix Jones, but we will be without 2 of our key players people have overlooked, we will be without one of our stud o-line men, Ben Hamilton and Alphonzo Smith. I think Jack Williams can fill in pretty well for Phonzy and Hochstein (?), will have to fill in for Hamilton, it thought it would be Seth olsen the rookie filling in for Hamilton, is Hochsteiin better than Olsen?

  19. Brandon Marshall hugged McDaniels. that was good to see

    ReplyDelete
  20. YAHHHHHHH!! GO BRONCOSS!!!!!!!! yep, they tested Champ, but Champ is to good to allow any completions and he also came away with his first pick of the year. And DOOM is a beast, i think he leads the league in sacks. Our whole Defense is a beast, i love it!!!!!!!!! Orton just needs to work on his accuracy, the ball was sailing on him for most of the game, oh and the penalties, to many, but it was a great and thrilling win. Loved to see Marshall score that TD and give McDaniels a great big bear hug after the game. Winning heals everything. Man that was a great game!!! GO BROOONCOSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  23. ahahahahaha, that pic of Lamo up there crying... that's all that needs to be said!!!!! 4-0 has never looked so good!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Ok, I lied, I have to say more. Offense needs to become more consistent but we will get there, I have no doubt. These big tests coming up will make or break us. Champ Bailey - LOVE YOU MAN!!! Defense saved our lives today. After Lamo was able to get that pass when we could've/should've stopped them on that 4th down, those last 4 plays by our D made the game. Dawkins was a beast today, as usual. 5 sacks on Lamo... I can't stop laughing!!! That TD catch by Moreno, too close for comfort but amazing. WAY too many penalties on us, some of them were lame and should have never been called but bottom line... we fought for that win and we got it. Say hello to little friend... 4 and 0!!!haha Life is good.

  25. Oh and Marshall's 51 yard TD... absolutely awesome! See what happens when you break up with your ego... good things happen. That is how he will get paid not by putting up a fight with the team. Was so glad to see him and McD hug after it all, big sign of Marshall growing up and being a professional, not a baby. Well done BMarsh well done. Proud of you!
