We held Martin to 56 yards on the ground. Moreno had a better day statistically than Martin. That's fuggin impressive.

If someone had asked me, I'd have thought Martin had 100 or so yards today. I have no idea what I saw but 56 yards was not what I expected at all.

Want to be more surprised?

How many yards do you think Moreno had?

Without looking, I'd say in the 80-90 range. Unfortunately, I think those probably came almost exclusively on about 7 runs. It looked like his options were either 1 or less or 7+. I'd much rather the dependable 4-6 yards on every rush.

Well not quite that good (59) but he lost some yards at the end of the game when we were running clock.

Finally a team that is solid on both sides of the ball. It has been a long time coming.

Wow. I swear I saw a half dozen 8-10 yard runs. I definitely would've thought he had more than that.

For how many there were singing his praises in the gameday thread, I'm absolutely shocked.

He did have another 14 receiving which surprised me, I thought he had a lot more.

Seriously I get more excited watching the defense play more than the offense. Watching Miller do his thang, getting sacks, stuffing the run, and scoring on defense. Exciting team that's for sure.

He played very well today. Bucs are the best run defense in the league. #1 in YPG and YPC.

He got no help from the OL though, that is for sure.

No doubt. I thought there were times when Manning and Moreno should've asked the D to slow down a bit so they could at least finish the handoff. Particularly on plays like the two where they ran the ball and Manning caught them with 12 on the field, the DL were just walking right through the OL and blowing up the play.

He had 69 yards on 20 carries...he was more effective early, but lost a few yards when we went to clock killing mode.

3.45 ypc isn't good enough to get it done against teams the Broncos will meet in the playoffs.

Teams the Broncos meet in the playoffs won't be #1 against the rush. They played that team today.

Same defense held J Charles to less than that. 13 carries for 40 yards.

Moreno is the first back to have more than 60 yard against the Bucs since week 8 against AP. Only four backs have ran for over 60 yards against them this year, counting Moreno.

Alright...then I guess we should be able to light up the Raiders on the ground. We need to get this running game rolling these next couple weeks. The Broncos have to get to the point where they know they can pick up a first down on the ground if they need it. They aren't there yet.

I agree.

I also think they should have some success Thursday, Oakland is 5th worst against the run in terms of YPC and YPG.

Read the first 15 pages of the game thread, I promise you'd think we're winless.
