Default As of this moment you Denver Broncos are 3rd in Offense & 3rd in defense

That is almost unbelievable.

The Texans could drop us down to #4 on D Monday night but we are locked at #3 in offense.

#6 in defensive scoring with 19.8 points per game, and we have allowed garbage time TD's in a few of our games like TB, Oak, and NO.

#3 in offensive scoring with 28.8 points per game.

4th in the entire NFL in total point differential!!!

Clearly you guys don't understand that we allowed 3 sacks to the Raiders so we are doomed in the playoffs.

The Broncos offensive line is ranked 4 over all in the NFL.

The Broncos are tied for 3rd in fewest sacks allowed and are 1st in first in fewest GB hits allowed.

and people were saying this team would not have a top 10 defense. I am anxious to see what this defense can do against a very good Ravens offense. At home the Ravens offense has been good. Flaco is not good under pressure though and he will throw the ball up for grabs. Going to be a great game to see how good this defense is.

Well, two really good teams haven't played each other in the Texans and Patriots, both with awesome offenses and one with a good defense, soooo....

I think you can understand why folks did not think the D would do a total 180 turn around inside a year.

Frankly none of the interior DL has played worth a crap in years past. Not having warren and carter was a huge loss. To some not having DJ was enough to throw in the towel.

Yet the kiddies have taken it up several notches. Vickerson has been outstanding and Wolfe has been much better as a rookie than anyone but a few though he could be.
WW, DT at LB have been an improvement, the UDFA DBs have been another shining spot. while having Miller become a complete OLB and a sack leader

Couple it all with having real coaches for a change and a DC with balls made the differences that most would not believe.

I thought getting in the top 15 would be an accomplishment, where we are is unbelievable.

I agree, I started a thread after the Houston loss I believe about how the defense could very well be a top 10 defense but I never in my life would have thought they would make it to #3. If Denver stays turnover free they will win the SB. This year it has been about the turnovers. If Denver takes care of the ball no one will beat them. Manning and this defense is just too good.

We are the ONLY team in the top 5 in both Defense and Offense. No body else is even close.

What I think is even better...think about it...we aren't in the top 5 in ANY Offensive/Defensive Passing or Rushing stats, which means balance.

We've lacked balance on both sides of the ball for a long time. We need improvement most in our offensive rushing game, which is awesome considering the quarterback we have behind center.

If you add the offensive and defensive rankings together for the top 5 teams it goes like this;

Offense listed first;

Broncos 4 + 4 = 8

Texans 5 + 6 = 11

Lions 2 + 19 = 21

Patriots 1 + 27 + 28

Saints 3 + 32 = 35

Defense listed first;

49'ers 2 + 12 = 14

Steelers 1 + 19 = 20

Seahawks 3 + 21 = 24

Bears 5 + 28 = 33

Fox said from day one a rising tide raises all boats... this can't be illustrated any better than looking at the defense raise over the past 8 weeks (San Diego comeback aside) ... if you look back you see that in most cases the Broncos jumped out to leads and made the other team one dimensional... this lead to rushing yards and attempts down! Also leads to more pressures leading to turn over opportunities… another in a long list of the little known Manning Effect?

Jumped out to leads? I always thought they've been coming out slow at the start of games. Then piling it on in the 2nd halfs

Thats Fair... Jumped may be the wrong word... point still stands... they build leads making the other team focus on playing catch up.

A new take on the Scotty Bowman rule of winning: if the sum of the ranks of your offense and defense is less than 10, you are probably going to win.
