1. Denver’s Defense Is for Real
I guess it’s a little weird to wait to the very last game of the season to say that. They were ranked Number 1. They did beat the Patriots. But the idea of Cam Newton and this Panthers offense that went off on Arizona, well, we thought they would give the Denver D a tougher time.
Not what happened.
I thought Newton’s legs would get him away from all those rushing Broncos, but that didn’t work.
Denver got 7 sacks and hit Cam a bunch of times. He missed open passes early. Was it nerves? I don’t know. But Denver’s defense outplayed the offense of Carolina.
They were General Zod with Kryptonite last night.
