Well one reason is because nobody tries to run the ball against them, as evidenced by them having the 5th fewest rushing attempts against them. Granted some of their success is their 3.4 yards allowed per carry (1st in NFL)...but the Broncos are just as good allowing 3.6 yards per opposing rush (2nd in NFL)
I think they're defense is a bit over rated....I mean why walk (rush) when you can fly (pass)....Manning is probably licking his chops right now as he surely knows that the Bucs allow 66.4% of pass attempts to be completed....8.11 yards per attempt....316 passing yards per game....have netted only 18 sacks....and opponents have a 90.7 QB rating against them
